My Time Made Easy - A Year in Review

Back to School!  Tomorrow my kiddos are back in my classroom!  And what does every teacher need?  A tote bag to tote all those papers that need correcting.  So that's what I made today for my Year in Review project from My Time Made Easy.  I must say that I took this idea from my friend Cheryl.  She made one (and gave it to me!) and I thought it was such a great idea.

The template I used is called Tote-All Package.  I just left off the flap closure to create an open top.  I used several MTME products on  this.  First, I used the Alphabet Soup Collection 1 digital paper to decorate the bag.  The apple was created using the An Apple a Day Slice cut file.  The decorative paper is Coffee Beans digital paper.  The top flap is decorated with a decorative punch and the ribbon for the handle is from SU.

The back of the tote includes a pocket.  I decorated that with the same paper I used on the apple from the Coffee Beans digital paper.

Inside the pocket is a tag that you can personalize to the person receiving this gift.  The sentiment is from the new Apothecary Labels digital stamp set.  The apple, from Back to School digital stamp set, was colored in GIMP.  I then used the tag from the Simple Seedling cut file.  I just resized it to fit into the pocket.  I tied the ribbon with a button and some floss.

The entire team is posting projects today.  Stop by these blogs to see what they created.
Don't forget that you can see all the new products that were released this month in the MTME store.  There are some really fabulous Halloween products as well as others you will love!
Thanks for stopping by!
