Fall Picnic Basket

Today the challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is to make ANYTHING, well Anything BUT a Card, that is:)

I decided to use one of MY TIMELESS TEMPLATES by Lauren Meader. This one is called Pack a Picnic. It is really quite big and rather easy to assemble. I got some gorgeous new paper by Bo Bunny called Kitchen Spice. I love it. I never used to like the color orange. Now I'm becoming quite fond of it. I also used a new set called Autumn Blessing by Papertrey Ink. I had so much fun coloring this in. These are totally MY colors. I have a very similar flower arrangement on my kitchen table.

As I said before this basket is very big. It also has a lid that you can make. I decided to add a scalloped edge instead. Lauren's templates come with a about 5 different design ideas along with the directions. All this for only $5. She even has 2 free templates that you can try before buying. She just made the cutest stocking from one of them HERE. Do you want to see what I put in mine?

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies!

I think I may love chocolate and peanut butter as much as the women in the blog where I got this recipe. You can get 2 different recipes HERE.

YOU can have a chance at winning TWO My Timeless Templates and a Papertrey Ink stamps set, along with a slew of other things HERE. Don't forget to check it out. I also still need participants in my Challenge in honor of Priscilla. There's some stuff up for grabs there too!

Now head on over to SSC and check out all the Design Team's fabulous creations. They have some really cute stuff. I hope you have a great week to create!
