The Scrapbook Boutique - January Challenge

Hi there. The January challenge has started at The Scrapbook Boutique and this month the inspiration picture has the colours of green/yellow and white. I rarely use these colours but I love how they look so fresh and pretty together:)  I could not resist making another cute little handbag in these colours as they are so fun to make and will make the cutest gifts.

I would also like to add my bag to the challenge at Addicted to Cas - the theme this time is 'embossing'.

Annabelles stamp challenge also has similar colours and they have some fun things happening on the blog with a new stamp release and blog hop this friday - so do pop over and have a look at: http://www.annabellestamps.blogspot.com.au/

Thanks for stopping by today - Hugs x x

Karen! So good to hear from you! Those fires are awful. I've missed you, but then again, I've not been a good blogger visitor.

Incredible numbers of us have had issues with blogger. I even posted a snit about it last week. We finally switched to Firefox and I seem to be fine. I resent being forced to Chrome 'cause I'm an old bag about those things and even if that's not it, it's ridic and suspicious that they haven't fixed it!

I had trouble getting into your comments from my laptop just now, so I haven't left individual comments, but I (as ever) love EVERYTHING and have pinned so much. Your little purses are adorable!!

Can you add a subscribe button so I don't miss your future posts? Thank you! I wish you all the best in the New Year!! xo

This is just the cutest little bag (and I just loved the elegance of the black & white version too)!
Thanks so much for sharing at Scrapbook Boutique!

Wow..this is really lovely. It's the sort of thing that really makes you take notice and I'm a big fan of "outside the box" ideas. This is perfect and you've used the colours wonderfully. Really nifty idea. Very impressed. Helen (Lillyput Crafts)

Hi Karen. Adorable handbags!! Love both of them, but the spring colors of today's version is a nice change from all the winter cards lately. FYI, Addicted to CAS is running a challenge right now for embossing ... your purse today would qualify and there's a prize, so why not??!! Loll xx
