Whimsie Doodles First Day Backpack TLC232

Gosh, “hump day” already? My weekend zoomed by – I met so many different people during my volunteering at the WPFG! I was exhausted coming home everyday because I spent 6 hours in the sun walking around and chatting with various people. I remember one of those days, I just passed out on the couch, in full volunteer gear after eating lunch lol Ooops!

Anyway, enough talk from me – the project I created before the weekend (but didn’t have time to post) was this backpack project. I got the template from a SCS Tutorial. Get your Backpack Box template here.

Remember the last School project I created with the Whimsie Doodles images? I thought that the colours were neutral enough to be used for a male of female teacher, but the Beau thought rather differently. So for this project, I decided to use more masculine colours. Hmph. The images used can be found in the School Things set as well as the School Sentiments Buttons I figured that this would be a neat little treat to give your son OR daughter πŸ˜‰ on the first day of school. Whether they find it on the kitchen counter or their real backpack later, it would be perfect to hold that little snack.

I laughed at what I chose to put in the baggie because it’s pure sugar… can you imagine your little one on a sugar rush and totally running around on the first day? Good first impressions… hey, what can I say – I’m not a mommy yet – I dunno what to feed kids! Thanks for dropping by, I’ll see you soon again.

Supplies: Images – Whimsie Doodles. Paper – Stampin Up. Accessories – blue grosgrain ribbon, Making Memories eyelets, Copic markers, Crop-a-dile.

Edited to add: Didn’t realize this was a SCS TLC this week. πŸ™‚ I participated without even knowing it…
