My Time to Create Challenge

Lauren Meader's challenge this week is to create your own PP and use it to make one of her Timeless Template creations. I chose her newest, "Pack a Picnic." It comes in two sizes, and I chose the smaller one for this project. I used a Scrappy Cat daisy stamp and randomly stamped flowers using pink, orange, and yellow ink. My CS is acid free and came from Staples (four colors to a pack, 110 lb.wt.). Brads are Recolllections, flowers are daisy d's, button is Stemma, and ribbon is from Hobbly Lobby. I LOVE the Pack a Picnic templates! I have already made two of the larger version and they are so roomy! I fit six Little Debbie blueberry muffins inside along with a fabric napkin in the basket below and still was able to close the lid. Sooo much space! (Not my best photo, but I was in a hurry to give it to my son and his girlfriend, who were coming over for a visit.) Hint: Attach ribbon to the handle with Fabri-Tac to make it extra sturdy. Lauren has two free templates on the Papertrey Ink website. Try one out and play along!
