My First Project In Weeks Using The Forever Young Cartridge

Just recently I started seeing a counselor/life coach for various reasons. One being that I never properly grieved my dad's loss. But my last visit was this past Tuesday and I showed her a little picture book of Two Pink Peas and some of my projects featured in this little booklet. I got this book online for 100% free, no shipping or anything. It turned out really great. Anyhow, We were talking about my love of making paper crafts and photography and she saw a picture of this little purse in my book. It had different colors on it but it was the exact same paper and she LOVED it. Actually she wanted to buy one from me right then and there. I don't like to take money from others and I LOVE to give so I made this for her today and will give it to her tomorrow at my appointment. I chose the word Believe because I truly Believe that she can help me get past some things that have bothered me for a long time. Surely I think she is going to be shocked that I made one for her but she is just so amazing and I really like and trust her ALOT so this is the least that I can do for her. Anyhow, I wanted to share it with you all.

If you are wondering this purse came from the Forever Young Cartridge. I used my Gypsy so I could make it as big as my 12" x 12" paper would allow. That is one feature that I absolutely love using the Gypsy, that you can see where the machine is going to cut. I added little round velcro tabs for the closure and then I added a black button on top. The chipboard with the word Believe on it was put on with pop dots. Then I added a few pink gems and of course pink ribbon. I hope she likes it! She has NO idea that I made this for her!! I love to make others happy, I have always been like that since I was younger.

But let me tell you, it was a PAIN in the you know what to drag all of my supplies that have been packed up just to make this. Then I had to put it all I really miss having my craft space all set up. I would be making things probably every single day if that were the case. My sweet husband offered to take one of our bedrooms and set up my Two Pink Peas Craft Room in there until we move. I just might take him up on that. I really miss creating with you all!!
