Whatever Girlfriend!



Alright, so I am in love with this funky new kit by Trish Jones and Sausan called "Big Girls Panties". It's just too fun and the colors....oh my gosh - Amazing!



I did up this wooden purse and once I got the papers on I almost stopped because it simply didn't need anything else, the papers are so amazing. But....I saw the "Whatever Girlfriend" word art and the "So?" journaling spot so I HAD to add them! I LOVE the way this turned out, I took so many photos of this but couldn't get one that did the project justice, anyway I love it and will soooo be carrying this purse around!!!



This purse is pretty big, bigger than it looks in the photo, its about 9" across. I printed out the pattern papers from this digi kit, traced the shape of the purse onto the paper, cut the shapes out and adhered them to the purse. For the Whatever Girlfriend embellishment, I digitally placed the "Whatever Girlfriend" word art onto the "So?" journaling spot, printed it and cut it out. I cut three pieces of polka dot ribbon to put behind this embellishment, added a skull & crossbones sticker and adhered it to the front. On the purse handle I used more polka dot ribbon - I sewed the sides of the ribbon together and made a casing to cover the purse handle. That's it!
Happy Sunday :)
