Thinking of school... On Saturday, my siblings and I made a pilgrimage to our childhood home in NJ and traced our steps to our school, literally a walk down memory lane. It's been about 45+ years since we all did that walk together and it brought back so many memories. So much of the old school and church are still the same. When we were standing in front of our old house the owner pulled up and we chatted for a bit, he was probably wondering what a bunch of middle aged (old) folks were doing in front of his home. He asked us if we were the ones responsible for all of the little handprints in the back patio cement. Yes we were, I can still remember Dad pouring that out. Fun! Anyway, this challenge reminded me of the red plaid tin lunch box that I had way back then. (Also had a vinyl Barbie one). Probably antiques now and worth a fortune!
I used the backpack tutorial in our Tutorials Resources section to create this school backpack using Authentique papers, textured gray card stock, eyelets, and black grosgrain ribbon (Stampin' Up!)
