Back to School in La La Land

This week at La La Land Crafts we are heading back to school. I find this a bit strange as here in Australia our school year is nearly 3/4 over - LOL. Our kids start a new school year after our long Summer holidays over Christmas.

I wanted to make a little backpack so went in search of a tutorial and found THIS one for a backpack mini album - such a cute idea! I did change some of the imstructions and the measurements slightly to suit my needs - my backpack is 1/2" wider that the one in the tutorial and the front pocket is only for show and doesn't open.

When you open up the backpack you can see all of Luka's stationary ready for use!

Inside the album there are 8 pages. I've used some school based DP from Fancy Pants Design to decorate my pages - I just need to add in some photos and embellishments to finish it off - although my son is 14 now so I may gift this to someone who will appreciate it - LOL

The back of the pack has some cord straps to finish it off.
