A friend is better than money in the purse...

We were so blessed to have been able to hang out and spend time with each other, but also that we had the talented Mama teach us how to make this oh so adorable purse! it takes one 12" x 12" sheet of DP. I think this was the easiest thing to make. I really want to use it as my purse when I go out...LOL! so pretty yah!
so with that I really was determined to try and make another purse, but in a smaller version. I decided on 9" x 9" sheet of DP. here's what mine looks like...
I also decided to make a divider inside this purse. I wanted to give some images and other goodies, so I decided to make two compartments. it worked out pretty well.

I also wanted to make a card to go with the purse. I really wanted to ink up my new Spotlight GF image...she's so cute...but I decided to alter her and use Stella's body instead. I made the card a 4" x 4" size and used crystal effects on her headband, heart and shoes. I even added a heart charm...gotta love those charms! here's the size comparison to the purse we made and the purse I made. I think they both came out pretty sweet!
here we are showing off our purses...aren't they just the prettiest thing! gotta say that this was a pretty fun picture...thanks ladies!
