Back To School with H2H

For this week’s Heart 2 Heart challenge the theme is Back To School.  I am always excited for this time of year, but not for the obvious reasons you may think.  Actually, it heralds my favorite season, Autumn.  Growing up in Northern Wyoming, autumn was a rarity.  Usually in August, the prairie grass along with anything else that may be green, turned brown and stayed that way until the following June; Autumn was the two weeks after school started then it was winter, with snow.  Here in Eastern Kansas I see beautiful shades of Autumn among the trees and the weather is still mild for a couple of months.  I absolutely adore it. 
With school starting soon, I always think of when I was young and packing my backpack with all my new supplies, so I chose to make a mini backpack for my project.  I had gotten this pattern quite some time ago from SplitCoastStampers.  Enjoy!
Supplies (all CTMH)
  • Paper:  School Zone, Cranberry Cardstock
  • Embellishments:  Outdoor Denim Eyelets and Button, Outdoor Denim Twill Ribbon, Embroidery Floss Blue & Purple Assortment
  • Other:  Velcro attachment, Sticky Strip to hold it together really well.
