Dare to Get Dirty Challenge

Hi everyone! Are you a member of the SCS Fan Club? If so, the Dirty Girl challenges started on Saturday and I saw this one today from my friend Holly (Toy on SCS) and had to play! If you aren't a Fan Club member, join! SCS is full of so much inspiration it's worth the $25 or so a year to join! You can find the details of this challenge here (we are supposed to keep the details of the challenge secret to those non-members so they are enticed to become a Fan!).

I love using the templates created by Lauren Meader (when she was designing for PTI and now for her own company, My Time Made Easy). This one is from MTME and it's called Trendy Tote! She makes them so easy to put together and has thought of every detail. I went super simple with this one! I started with the JUGs colors this week of orange, navy, green, and cream. I couldn't get something done in time to play with my team this week, so I decided to incorporate the colors into this project. I used SU's night of navy and certainly celery cardstock and Jersey Shore dp. I added the green and orange bling, the tag from MTME A Spot of Tea set, some star dust stickles on the tag, and certainly celery ribbon and was done! I cut the template out using my Cricut and SCAL program...done in a flash! Here's another shot of the side of the tote.My sister-in-law had surgery on her shoulder today, so I stamped the Thinking of You sentiment from the same MTME set. I'm going to fill it with some good chocolate and maybe a book or two. She's going to be laid up for about 6 weeks, so she needs something to keep her busy. Today I just filled it with some silk greenery in pots that I display on my kitchen window sill.

Thanks again for stopping in today! I hope your week is going well! I'm off to straighten the house and finish my laundry before going out to a new restaurant tonight with my best friend, Maria! See you tomorrow!
