Tote- ally Haute!

I've got a really late post today.I've been working really hard the last few days  on a project for Creations by AR.  I was so thrilled to have Adela contact me over the summer to be on her design team.  You all know how much I love to create 3D items.  Well, Creations by AR is a fabulous online source for templates.  She also has several digi stamps and a few new things in the works.  I'm really excited to be a part this fabulous team of Designers. You can see the great company I'm keeping on my sidebar.  Also, make sure you head over and check out all the current templates you can purchase, as well as, a few FREE templates that you can try on Adela's fabulous blog.

The template I've used today is the Haute Tote template.  I wanted to be able to enter this into a few challenges.  I think this tote is a perfect little bag to hold items for a wedding gift.  There is a pocket included on the inside that could hold a gift card.  I always try to journal when I go on vacation about things that happened along the way.  Lightbulb!  Why not include a little journal in here for the honeymooners to jot down memories of their trip?  I think a few other items that might be fun are gum, chapstick. trial sized sunscreen.  It's like a little package of things for the flight or the road.  Just make sure you give it to them before they actually leave:)  Do you guys have any other ideas?

  I'm entering this into a few challenges.

The Playdate Cafe~ Color Splash with Green
JUGS- Wild Wedding
Allsorts_ Dressing Up  I think that I dressed that card up pretty well.  Adding the ruffled trim and crepe paper bottom gives it a look of dressed up.
CPS- Sketch
Paper Sundaes~ Stitching
Just a few details....My flower on the tote was made by layering a Sizzix die cut flower.

Off to get dinner made.  Have a great day!
