Wacky Wednesday and Free Cute Purse Template

Woohoo!!! My first Wacky Wednesday post...

I was thinking it would be a little fun to find other words that start with "W" to try out some other options

Our word this week is:  welaway it means alas... appropriate for today, as I begin anew :-)

I thought it would be fun to share my son's Mother's Day card.  Isn't this adorable? I love the shape and the jewels on the handle, but my favorite is the pictures he drew, LOVE the picture of us hanging out together.  I love the little details that were added just for us - the pool party with the "splash" - I LOVE IT!!!  In fact, I am entering this as one of my projects for the "May Artful Bag Challenge" maybe you will feel inspired to give it a try :-)

For those of you who would like to try your hands at a project of your own, I am sharing this purse template (pdf) that you can print out to make your own purse.  Cathy, if you are reading this, please skip over this next part... I am going to use this template to create a purse card for my niece's birthday... No matter the age, that love of purse's is strong, I am thinking paper with glitter and lots and lots of bling - what do you think? I need to get on that, I don't have a lot of time to pull this together (well, sleep is overrated!)

I promise to take pictures of my journey in creating the girly-girl purse, but some quick notes... I will print out the template, cut and fold it on a scrap piece of paper.  I usually start with printer / copy paper.  I do this because I don't want to have lines on my project, so when I am ready to make my project, this becomes what I use to create my purse.  I will line it up on the paper I am going to cut and cut around it (tape can be used to hold it in place).  I have a bunch of ideas floating around my head right now, they will probably continue to float there for a while as my project builds up in my head and then I attempt to create it :-)

Oops, gotta get the little one to bed.  If you make this project, please link up to this post and leave me a comment so that every one can see your creations!

Have a WONDERFUL day!
