Brilliant Blue Purse


I made this purse to put some of my cards from my stash to give to one of my son teacher.  I decided to try the faux alligator instead of the pattern papers.  The purse looks o.k.  I think if I were to use either black or chocolate chip it would look much better.  The thing is I've thought of using those two color but I am running low on both card stock colors. I am debating whether  to order those card stocks from Stampin' Up! now or to wait until July.  If I order the card stocks now I'll be saving several dollars.  If I wait until July, I will be spending extra dollars since the price of the card stocks are going up for the new catalog.  I have lots of Brilliant blue card stocks. I ordered them for wedding invitations last year but never got to use them.  Hopefully one day it will be used up.

I cut off 1/4" on each side of the purse.  I like this one better.  The purse is still very big but it has a better shape.

Also, I am really excited to receive this award from the talented Michelle at Pink Paper Paradise.  What a fun award!

The rules for this award is:
1. Thanks and link the person who gave you the award.
2. Display the award on your blog.
3. Tell 6 lies and 1 truth about yourself or vise versa.
4. Nominate 7 others and leave a message letting them know.

I will go with 6 truth and 1 lies.

1.  I enjoy blogging.
2. I am 37.
3. I get to play with paper crafts everyday.
4. I  ate bugs before.
5. I enjoy cooking.
6. I read my children books, Diary of the Wimpy Kid.
7.I never went into the water at the beach.

Goes to the end of this post to see which one is not true about me.

I am passing this fun award to the following seven bloggers:

1. Creations by Patti
2. Barbara's World of Whimcees
3. A one of a Kind Design by Rachel
4.Casey's Pitter Patter Chatter!
5. And Another Thing . . .
6. Encourage Joy
7. Gaby's Ideenreich

The one thing that was not true about me is I don't enjoy cooking.  No, we don't eat out too often. It's just that I don't know how to cook and every meal is a battle.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello Helen!

You ate bugs is true?! :<) Wow!

Love the blue purse - I know well how one can order a special color for a project and then it becomes an issue of 'what can I make with this!' because the project didn't come about. :<)

Congratulations on the award! Thank you for sending it on to me - you are a good friend! I love it! It will be fun thinking up 6 lies about myself! I also love checking out the blogs on the awards list to enjoy great blogs I have not yet seen!

You take care. Thank you for all of your very kind comments as they make my day!

Hi Helen, (Rachel) Thanks for the award. Sorry I had no idea. Once I start blogging again I will be happy to display it. I didn't have to scroll down to know that the lie was. haha. I think this one I will enjoy doing. :)

I like your purse, but it is a lot of blue. I have two sisters that would love it as blue is their favorite color. I think it turned out good. The teacher should love it. Especially with the cards in it. ;)
