Challenges by AR -- AR-070711 Wild Prints

Happy Thursday!

Today is the day! The first challenge has been posted at the Challenges by AR blog!

There is so much to tell you about the kick-off of our first challenge.

1. There will be a week-long celebration. Adela will be giving away one template each day for a week. Please leave a comment on the Challenge Team blog for your chance to win a fabulous, not yet released, template.

2. Each project that you link for our first challenge will earn you a $1 gift certificate to Creations by AR.

3. And, at the end of our first challenge period, one lucky winner will receive two templates of their choice!

Magdalena is our host for this first challenge and her theme is Wild Prints. I chose the Haute Tote template and Bo Bunny papers for a wild, tropical look.

I made a flip flop tag to hang off the front of the tote and hung the change purse inside.

And, I made a 'coaster' album to put inside the purse:

Adela's templates are available in PDF, SVG, and DXF formats, and come with detailed instructions. I used the PDF format and hand-cut my template. It was very easy to work with and assemble. The Haute Tote template is a must-have! I envision making it in many different patterns. It can be elegant or fun. How about seasonal? Or, making party favors? There are so many options for this template.

I look forward to read your comments about my Haute Tote and to see your creation(s) for this challenge. If you don't yet have a Creations by AR template, your first one is only a click away!

If you haven't been to the Challenges by AR blog yet, please hop over and join in on all the fun.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to visit the other Challenge Team members to see their Wild Print creations and leave them some loving comments too.
