Back to School at the Hambo Hoedown

This week, it is back to school time at Hambo!  Using the studious School Dog digi image from Hambo Stamps, we had to create a school-themed card.

In my usual off-center manner, I decided to create something other than a card.  I found a really cute video explaining how to make a back pack and thought it would be perfect for this challenge!  Part of the challenge was to create something that featured the school dog digi stamp, one of the sentiments and one or more school-themed items.  Making a back-pack ensured that my whole project was school themed!  It comes complete with straps and a pocket.  HOW CUTE IS THIS???

 
 
If you want to make one yourself (these would make nice teacher treats-albeit a bit time consuming), you can find the instructions and video tutorial here.

Don't miss the school bell...head on over to the Hambo Hoedown classroom and check out the other great creations from the bacon bits!
