Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii- Challenge #2

Happy Aloha Friday and hope your day is just as beautiful, wherever you may be, as it is in Hawaii. This has got to be one of the most beautiful days, anyone could ask for. Bright, sunny, blue skies, and a nice breeze with the fragrance of the plumeria flowers in the air. Wow!!! God is truly so good and it is by His hands that this great beauty was created. My girls are off in the family room entertaining one another and just laughing and giggling away. I love it. As their mommy, it blesses my heart to hear (and see) the joy in their spirit and their little hearts. I am truly blessed. Thank you Lord!

Now, as for the week's SSH challenge, we were given this very beautiful image to work off of. Check out those colors. Don't they make the prettiest combo? Yes, the layout and details are great but...I was so inspired by the color combo. Very gorgeous and vibrant. However I selected only certain colors to work with and this is what I ended up with...

I was so inspired by the beautiful Accordion bags/purses that Maria (Stampin' Inspirations...) created and decided to take a try at it. My 11 y/o needed a gift holder to put her little bags of trinkets in, that she will be giving to one of her girlfriends. Perfect! I had the perfect gift holder in mind, for her. So there I went, on to creating it. Of course I geared toward the younger age.

I love the "Girlie" images from Penny Black. As I mentioned earlier, it reminds me much of my girls. This image "Always Here", the DS paper kit "Blossom", and the designer ribbons are just a few of many items sold at Little C's.

Just as any other project, the measurements of this Accordion Purse can be adjusted according to one's needs. In our case, this will suit the need of the little trinket gift bags just perfectly.

Purse Details:
Stamp: "Always Here" by Penny Black (Little C's)
Paper: "Blossom" kit by Three Bugs...(Little C's)
Ink: SU! markers
Accessories: ribbons, stickles, designer brad, scallop & circle punches, oval nesties, CB Dots folder.

I appreciate you stopping by. Pop on in at Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii to check out what the rest of the DT's came up with. Hope you will be inspired. Till then...Aloha and God bless~

hugs in Jesus~
