Man Up!

It's Monday, and time for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderful DT Sister Jayne is our hostess this go around. And does she ever have a hard fun challenge!! The theme is Man Up! Mad a bag, box or container for a man. See, I told you it was hard fun!!! Now, I'll be the first to say that I have a really hard time making a masculine anything!! Be it a card or whatever. I racked my brain on what to make. I decided to look at my cartridges that are more manly in my opinion. I decided to make the back pack from the Campin' Critters cartridge. It can be found on page 69. I cut it and it's layers at 10.75 inches. Now I've never made this before and I noticed some things that I did wrong. I won't point them out to you. I'm just going to pretend that it is perfect!!! :) I didn't go fancy with it since I'll give it to a guy. I did want to use a little pattern to it, so went with some pattern cardstock for that. The sentiment I added is from the Sun Kissed stamp set from Scrappy Mom's. This backpack box will be great to put a gift card and maybe a little small treat in it for a very special guy. Sure hope you decide to join our challenge. Head over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check the sidebar for the challenge rules. And while you are there, check out the creations that my DT Sisters have made for inspiration. Awesomeness for sure!!!! Then head to your crafty space and make something following our theme and then link it by Sunday April 28th. So looking forward to seeing what you make!!! Hope ya'll like my backpack!!!! :)

It looks fantastic to me! I'm even more sure a guy will never notice a thing, but go "WOW!" I forgot Campin critters had 3D items! I was racking my brain for what to do for this challenge and never even thought of this cart!
