Happy Hump Day! Is it Wednesday already? After the long weekend, it is hard to believe that the week is already half over. Where does the time go?

Anywho....Today is Flutter By Wednesday!!!!!!!! Danni's Birthday bash continues!! All month long she will be giving away different blog candy each Flutter My Wednesday. Don't forget to join in the challenges and leave a comment on her blog for a chance to win some of the yummy candy!!! Danni will also have special guest designers each and every week. Today's guest designer is the amazingly talented Jacque. I popped by this morning already to see her creation and boy oh boy are you ever in for a real treat. AMAZING!!!

This week's challenge is to use Danni's Favorite color on your creation, Pink! I decided to do something other than a card for you this week. I combined the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge with the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge (to make a card or creation for your kids with a school related theme), TLC232 backpack box, and CAS31 Pop It Up. I used the stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs Doodles 2-Thinking of You.

I decided that making a backpack for each of my girls and inserting a gift card in it for "School shopping" would be the perfect creation for the Stampin Sister's in Christ Challenge. It is school related and it is for my girls. Since I home school, my girls do not need to go school shopping like most others. I thought it would be fun for them to receive a gift card for a "school outfit". Today I will share my brown and pink creation with a butterfly that I made for my daughter, Meghan.
Pink is her favorite color and she loves butterflies, like me!

Backpack Recipe:
The template and tutorial for the backpack is available here at Splitcoast
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Doodles 2- Thinking of You
Paper: Pink Piroutte, SEI Chocolat
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button from SU, Pink Ribbon, Circle Spellbinders, gold eyelets

I hope you have a chance to create a card or creation using a butterfly or fairy that is pink. If you do, please link your creation to Danni's blog here. Should you upload your creation to PCP or SC, please use the keyword FBW.

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:
