It's so tweet !!

It seemed like a good idea at the time...
to re-decorate Maria's room, now that she is away at Uni again.
I have scrubbed, sanded, glossed and emulsioned.... 
and it's not fun anymore... lol**
Just got to persuade hubby to do the wallpapering on Sat now...

So, this morning I finally got some time to craft
and I  decided to have a go at one of these sweet little backpacks.


I would like to enter this for the Simon Says Challenge,
where the theme is 'Sing it Baby'.
The song I chose is...   
Little Green Bag
Now, you may think that you have never heard of this song,
but take a listen, the first few bars are instantly recognisable.
Are you jumping to the left... and to the right ???


For the backpack I used the brilliant template and instructions by
Mary at Splitcoast Stampers

Do you want to see my deliberate mistake...  ??
I should have to stuck the pink flap inside the bag,
so that it wouldn't show.
Never mind... only you and I know that...   ;-)

Mini Backpack is  in green card.
Design Paper - My Mind's Eye 'Wild Asparagus'
Bird and sentiment stamps Impression Obsession 'Life is Tweet'
Ribbon and brads from my stash.
