Getting Backpacks Ready!

Hello! Well we have been busy these past few days getting ready for the first day of school which is tomorrow! I don't know how it is where you're from, but if you are last minute school supply shoppers like us, it is CRAZY out there!!! I had to go to 4 different stores to find glue sticks because everyone was sold out! I had to go to 3 different stores to find a backpack for my daughter that didn't have spiderman on it or cars lol : ) Now that both backpacks are packed with all the necessary school supplies, I thought I would post this cute little backpack I made a couple weeks ago, but never got it uploaded. I used some of the new in-colors Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry cs. The ribbon is some I found in my stash, and works great with the Melon Mambo! The books and sentiment are from Artful INKables Think Big set. This was so fun to make, and you can find the template for these here. Thank you so much for stopping by today!

AND - it's people like YOU that make me shop EARLY...you crazy people coming in at the last minute and getting mad when the glue sticks are gone - - ROTFL

Fabulous project, Kerri! Really love the colors!
Can't believe you couldn't find glue sticks... But glad that now everything is ready for the first day at school!

This is so cute! It's a darling little backpack.
Luckily our school doesn't have us bring supplies, we just give them money to buy the supplies...much simpler for me!
