belli challenge #32

Good morning ladies! Today is Wednesday and I know at least one person has been excited to see my Belli Challenge today! Did you guess what the challenge is? Yep, anything school. So, you know how this works...I make something with things that I've had for some time (does a week count? lol!) and then you do the same thing, post to Chris's blog, and then, hopefully, win a neato prize!

So, here is my project for this week. I decided to do a back to school project for Kyler's teacher...even though his teacher is in her first year (yes, that makes me a little nervous). Have you seen these super cute backpacks on different blogs? Would you love to make one? Well go HERE and you will find a video tutorial! Woohoo!

As always...post your school creation Chris's blog for a chance to win a fun prize! And another as always there are other players to show you some fun stuff so go check it out!

Make sure you check out Chris's blog above for a great project and all the extra deets on the challenge!

Well, tomorrow is the first day of school for Jon and Kyler. It has been a long summer but, honestly, I'm not looking forward to letting my boys go. I will be fine and find plenty of things to do to keep me busy but these are my kiddos and I always miss them. Sappy, I know! I'm just telling you ahead of time so you are ready for the first day of school pics...k?

I'm working on Todd's mom's birthday present and will probably show that to you on Friday. You've seen these before...I'm just making a new and prettier one for his mom. Intrigued? Stop back to see!

Finally you know I have to do it....

Wow, this is just amazing. There is so much detail. Awesome job.

Sarah {SCS: Sairabee} said...

This is awesome! I'm still amazed at how willing you are to try new things like this. Me... not so much. I'm sure she'll love it. And don't worry about her being new. In some ways that's good, because she (in theory) is still excited about being there and not jaded by the system yet!

Your backpack is totally cute, and I think it is such a fantastic idea!! Awesome, girl!!

Kristine said...

OH, that's such a COOL backpack!! I did the ATS challenge, which was also "ANYTHING SCHOOL" and I made a mini one of these backpacks--great minds think alike, huh?!! ;o) Lol. Hope your first 1/2 week of school went terrific! My girls are exhausted and ready for the weekend--we all are!

P.s.
Your school-themed backpack is way cooler than mine ;)
