Emotional Baggage - No this is fun!!

It's Saturday - happy weekend to you! And welcome to the 4th installment of Super Challenge Saturday. First of all, Joni - our hostess for this weeks challenge, has some great samples on her blog so be sure to check out her blog and leave her some love!

So this week's challenge is Emotional Baggage. Ladies, we all get attached to our purses. I have a friend who is obsessed with her purses much like some of us are with shoes. So the challenge is to let a purse/bag/luggage inspire you. Upload your creation on SCS using keywords BLOGC4 and be sure to leave a comment on any of the blogs so we can check it out! Have fun!!

A Sticky Situation
Confessions of a Stamper

Here's my challenge card. My inspiration is my purse that my sister gave me. Here's how the story goes, T came out here for a visit over the summer and she had the most awesome purse with her. I told her I wanted it. So after a couple of days, she said that if I bought her one like the one I had then I could have it. Off to Kohls we went! It's a Sherpani and you just can't get them out here. Let me know what you think.

I used Chocolate Chip for the base. Then to re-create the lining of this purse I pulled out an old punch and started punching the edges. Then I backed it with some green paper and then stamped the flower centers and outlined the flowers. The mats are Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip and then picked the stamp that best represented how I felt when my sister said she'd give me the purse.

Have fun with this - I can't wait to see what you come up with!
