It's been AGES since I've played in challenges just for the sake of playing, so when I saw the fabulous photo at TIME OUT Challenge #194, I had to join. Kim's tote bag is so pretty; exactly the inspiration to spark my 'feeling meh' creativity.
First inspiration: the tote itself (Kim is sooooo talented!). I opted for a C&9th's Weekender Purse, using leftover papers from a Crafty Girls collections - a piece with girls and another, plaid - to reflect the different fabrics Kim featured on her tote. A sparkly loop, key and heart finished it off.
The photo also shows a mug filled with markers, so I added some goodies to the purse: a set of Crafty Girls journaling cards.
A complete gift ensemble requires a card, so I made on: Missees-themed, of course! Her top is intended to reflect the Girl's Club Pastel Parade fabric on Kim's bag (yes...I did check out these beautiful fabrics!). Mine are neither 'truly' pastel nor metallic but...kind of close, design-wise. Or, so I hope!
Here's the set...
Thank you, Kim, for the awesome inspiration....creativity definitely feeling an upswing!
Since this is a birthday-themed set, I'm heading over to the current Seize the Birthday Challenge #221~Anything Goes.
