Challenges by AR -- 'Cheer me Up' Haute Tote


Happy Sunday!

Are you having fun with the first challenge at Challenges by AR? I made another Haute Tote. Did I tell you I love that template?!?!?

A little story before the picture...

Yesterday I was shoe shopping on-line and put an adorable pair of animal print sandals in my shopping cart. I got up to get my credit card and when I went to check-out I got a message that the shoes were not available! What's up with that? Why could I put them in my cart, but not buy them? Did someone else with a size 5 put the shoes in their cart too, but got to check out quicker than I tried to?

After my shoe disappointment, I decided to craft. I searched on-line for animal print paper like the shoes I tried to purchase. Well, I came across pink zebra paper (no, the shoes did not look like that!) and printed it out. Guess what? It looked great with Melon Mambo!

So, here is my 'cheer me up' haute tote:



Don't forget to comment each day on the Challenges by AR blog for a chance to win a 'Let's Vase It' template. Also, for each Wild Print template project you link you will receive a $1 gift certificate to Creations by AR. And, at the end of the first challenge week, one lucky participate will win two templates of their choice!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Lisa! Such an adorable tote! I LOVE the pink zebra paper! I am so sorry about your shoes. What a disappointment to have them in your cart and then to not have them available! Arghh!

Regina said...

WOW!!Lisa! Deine Tasche ist ein wahrer Hingucker geworden!
Auf die Idee, Wild-Papier aus dem WWW auszudrucken, bin ich noch gar nicht gekommen. Vielleicht finde ich auch etwas.
Schade, dass du keine Schuhe gefunden hast.

Liebe Grüße Regina

So funny! I was in Michael's yesterday and saw a pad of these wild color prints and thought of you! What a hoot. By the way, our Joann's just re-did the store. At least worth walking in now.

I'm such a fan of your 3-D projects. I love this little bag and the pink zebra print. Perfect for this little cutie. I'm with you, why don't they let you know the item is out of stock before you put it in your cart. Not cool! Hope you are well. Best, Curt

Fabulous bag!!! And I LOVE the pink animal print. What a bummer about the shoes. I'm thinking you are brave to order the shoes online. My husband is trying to get me to shop for an buy a shower curtain online, and I am too scared to do that!
