Hi everyone! It's Saturday (yeah!) and I'm on day 2 of a 4 day weekend! We are celebrating Memorial Day at our cabin...I hope the weather is dry for a change! We'll see!This week is the Just Us Girls template/3-D challenge, and Andrea has challenged us to make a Father's Day project. So nice to get projects done ahead for these holidays for a change!
I immediately thought of this Trendy Tool Tote template from My Time Made Easy. I started with a chocolate base and added the decorative panels in river rock and ran it through a Cuttlebug folder. It made it more masculine, I think. I added a ribbon and sentiment from the For Dad digital set, also from MTME. I colored the ribbon in GIMP and then added the sentiment, which was also colored in GIMP. This is going to be for my father-in-law. I didn't include any tools or anything for him. He's almost blind from glaucoma, so it's sometimes difficult finding gifts for him. He doesn't really like breakfast, but likes toast and his sweets. So, I added a jar of homemade jelly (this was given to me, not made by me!) and some biscotti. And he LOVES coffee, so I purchased some coffee for him. The colors of my tote were inspired by the coffee bag, and when I finished the template, I realized that the bag was too tall to fit in the template! LOL!!
