Hi!


Just so you know I haven't forgotten about my blogging family, I thought I'd post a project today. I can't yet post what I've been working on this past couple of weeks, so here is a project from my *ancient* past, when I was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator! LOL!!!

I created this project from an existing box on the demo website, tweaking it here and there to create a backpack, for a Back-to-School swap I was in. Just might be appropriate for NOW, eh?!? LOL!

Not much stamping here, except for using the Classic Alphabet and Numbers sets (ABC, 123)... Used my coluzzle to create the flaps and Velcro half-circles to close the flaps...

I think the rest is pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any questions about it, feel free to ask! Just be sure and leave your e-mail addy on your post so that I can reply, okay?
Happy Back-to-School time!!!

This is too cute! It looks like a variation of the 2-4-6-8 box with a modified topper. I'd like to know how you made the little box & flap on the front, though. Email me at lhanna@mindspring.com. Thanks! Leslie
