Sweet Memories

Hi everyone! Did you happen to see the latest Think INK Tuesday challenge over on the Artful INKables blog? Holly challenged us to make a box or bag. I searched the Resources section on SCS to find something I hadn't made before and decided on the Tiny Treat Basket. One of the stamps from AI's new set, called Fun and Friendly, has a woven pattern that fit perfectly right on the side of this tiny basket, so I went with it!I had to find some candy to fit inside (it had to be small, because this really is a tiny basket). I went to my corner gas station to find something, and these miniature Reese cups were it! They happen to be my favorite candy, too! I was inspired to color the weave pattern by the colors of the wrapper. I added some stickles to bling it up. The handle is SU's new in color swiss dot ribbon in soft suede. I attached it with a shimmery orange crystal brad. I had to make a little 3x3 notecard with it because I loved the sentiment. I stamped the little flower in pumpkin pie (it's stamped off first to get the lighter shade). Both the sentiment and flower are alsofrom the same set.

You can enter this challenge on the AI blog by posting your direct post to Mr. Linky. If you post to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword AIC02. You could win a grab bag of AI stamps! You have until Monday, September 14 to enter...that's a lot of time to make something fabulous! You don't need AI stamps to play, but if you do use them, you'll get to post your entry twice...which means more chances to win! ;-) I can't wait to see what you come up with! Thanks for stopping by!
