My Time Made Easy - Tricky Treat Tote

Have you seen the new products in the My Time Made Easy store?  We have some fabulous new items in there for you to create with!  Today, I'm showcasing one of the new templates called Tricky Treat Tote.  Now while the name of the template hints at Halloween, I'm here to show you it can be used for any kind of items.
I went to a Party Lite party a few months ago and purchased some tea lights and a tea light holder.  I'm not a candle person, so I've been holding on to them to give as a gift.  This tote was the perfect size to hold them!  I started by using SU's retired cameo coral cardstock to cut out the template.  Then I used two papers from MTME's new Trendy Forest digital paper to decorate the front and sides.  On the front, I used Liquid Pearls in an opal color.  I love the look of Liquid Pearls! 
The tag was created using the Round Up cut file and the new Happy Hallows digital stamp set.  I layered and colored the image using the GIMP software (it's a free software you can download online), then used Lauren's tutorial to cut it using the Cricut.  The sentiment is from Tending the Garden digital stamp set.  Liquid Pearls were added again around the perimeter of the tag.  I added ribbon and a heart button tied with floss.  Some Prima flowers, a pearl brad, and more ribbon finish off the front of the tote.
I really loved the leaves print in the Trendy Forest digital paper, but it was a little too busy to use on the front of my tote (this tote is really big!), and I HAD to use it, so I covered the sides with it.  It matches the leaves on the tag, so it looks really pretty and gives so much more color to the tote!

Lauren and Katie are posting today, so please stop by their blogs to see their creations.  You can also see all the new products here and get inspiration from the MTME Gallery.  It's chock full of inspiration for all your creative needs! 

Thanks for stopping in today!  Have a great Labor Day weekend (to my US friends)!
