A BITTERSWEET PROJECT

Can you believe that the start of school is just around the corner? Where did the summer go? Harder to believe is that Miss Josie will be leaving my daycare at the end of the week to start her first day of kindergarten. I know I should be excited for her and I am VERY proud of her, she is growing up to be a sweet and adorable little lady. However, in all honesty, I am more blue then excited. She has been coming to me since she was a baby, I am great friends with her mom and Josie and her family have become part of our family. Just a week ago she got her ears pierced....yikes what's next, driving lessons?? Okay, that was a little bit of an exaggeration but you get my point. So this little project is for Miss Josie to celebrate her first day of kindergarten and her newly accessorized cute little earlobes. YOU ROCK JOSIE!! I found the idea for this project on the Whimsie Doodles blog. It was created by one of the DT members, Thanh Vo. She got the template from a SCS tutorial. You can also get the template by clicking here. The stamped image on the top flap is a digi stamp from Whimsie Doodles. The patterned paper is from the Blossoms and Butterflies DCWV paperstack. I used velcro for the closure of the flaps instead of magnetic snaps.



The backpack is the perfect size to hold the earrings we purchased for her. Fruitsnacks and other small treats would also fit inside comfortably. Thanks for visiting.
