I got the "backpack" idea from Kathy Orta at Paper  Phenomenon. Her backpack mini is SO much more inspiring and AWESOME. If you haven't visited her site and you enjoy paper crafts you are missing out on so much. Go check her out at

Here is the front of the backpack.

I apologize to my Peeps for not being on here this week. I missed "Tuesday's Treasure" but my son has been very sick. We've been to the doctor, the emergency room and the specialist this week. We have had blood work done, twice, we are having a CT Scan, an endoscopy and who knows what else. I just want to find out what is wrong with him and get him on the mend. I am hoping to have some time to spend on here tomorrow.
Please forgive my absence this past week. I will make it up to you all. :)

Colorful Inspiration

Ok, my peeps. I wanted to offer a little inspiration today and I saw this color palette on Brandi’s site,, and I love the colors. These colors remind me of Fall and the cool weather that will come along with it. Try these colors out on a scrapbook page, a card, a pillow, whatever your heart desires. If you do use this color palette link it here so we can all see what you did with it.
