A friend of mine has just given birth to a beautiful baby boy - aaaaah! Gives me the warm and fuzzies knowing there's a baby about. Obviously, it also gives me an opportunity to create something and, as I missed Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge last week (shock horror!), I thought I would redeem myself by entering this week's challenge, which is 'Babies, ribbons and bows' - how timely!
'Reach for the Stars'
Papers: Textured cardstock from local Paper Mill shop; glittered vellum from stash; October Afternoon
Template: Papertrey Ink, My Timeless Templates, 'Around Town Tote'
Other: Chipboard star, painted with yellow acrylic, from stash.
I'm a real fan of Lauren Meader's templates, available at Papertrey Ink. They are quick and easy to put together and make this sort of project an absolute breeze. This beautiful little tote bag is about 8.5 inches tall (20 cm) and has plenty of room inside for a gift. The photograph below shows the side of the tote, so that you can see the depth of it.
