Backpacks and a little secret....

I am just about packed to go away tomorrow morning, but wanted to let you see a couple of backpacks that I made after seeing a tutorial over on Splitcoaststampers. It's really easy, but tiny, so for the second one I adapted it a little to be able to fit a little notebook and pencil in. I want to give a few of those to the teachers at my sons Preschool as they are just so lovely there and my oldest is leaving to go to big school in September!
The flaps close with magnetic snaps from Basic Grey and I think they are sooo cute! Let me know what you think, ok?

Also, I have been keeping it a little quiet as I didn't really believe it would happen until I had proof *lol* but little me will get her 5 Min. of "fame"! The lovely Clare from DoCrafts who I met at the Glitterpot a while back has asked me if she could feature me in her Talent Spot Corner!
How amazing is that? I am so chuffed! They sent me some lovely goodies to make some cards with for their next issue which I believe is out in September. It's all christmassy and I have to say I struggeled a bit seeing as it was blistering hot and sunny when I had to make them. I won't show anything yet, as you will all be able to see them in the Mag.
Hope you have a lovely week and I hope I can share a few more pics of our extension when I am back!

Back from hols and going again...., not really on holiday again, but our building work is going into a crucial part now and it is safer for the kids to not be around. So, I decided to take them to my parents for a week as we found cheapo flights. Barely had time to settle back in after coming home from the North sea, but there you go...
Sorry for being a bad blogger, but things here are a bit hectic!
I leave you with a few pics from our time at the sea and will come back later to show a few projects and share a little secret!
