Birthday Backpacks

I hope ya'll had a fabulous Christmas!!! We sure did! I have been sick and so that's why there have been no posts! I just can't seem to shake off whatever it is I have! I have had it for a little over a week now. I haven't had a chance to stamp anything in forever! Shawners and the boys are leaving in the morning to go camping for 3 days and Kailee is in Seattle...so I have 3 days to myself, in a quiet house to do whatever I want!! Obviously there will be lots of stamping time!!! :) In the meantime I thought I would share these backpacks I made for Kailee's birthday party. These were the invites! It was a sleepover party...so I thought the backpacks would be fun. I found wonderful instructions at Becky's blog...Inking Idaho. Hope you are all sleeping well...as you can see I am up at 2:50 in the AM. ;)
chat at ya soon...
what's in it?...
paper...certainly celery, Heidi Grace dsp

These are super cute, what a great invite to a sleep over! I love the color combo and the size of them. They look thicker than other paper backpacks I've seen online.

Oh wow!!! Those are stunning little backpacks! You always make the best stuff that's for sure. Can't wait to see what you make in your free time....not fair by the way!!! I have NEVER been a night without my kids and they are 8 & 6. At least they are in school now.
