My Pretty Palette Challenge # 30

Hi All! Today I am posting My Time Made Easy Pretty Palette # 30. This was SO much fun to make! It is called "Tricky Treat Tote" template. I cannot tell you how "easy peasy" this adorable tote was to put together! And the best part is...that I can use it again and again and again. I have already thought of ways to use it for Halloween and Christmas. This is a great gift giving idea, especially for the holidays!!!

The base is from SU's SO Saffron Card Stock. I used MTME's "Spring is Here" papers called "Pretty Polka Dot Panels." These are the perfect colors to match this Challenge. The sentiment came from MTME's Bee-Loved Sentiments digi set. I put it on Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2 Labels and used SU's Certainly Celery card stock for the background. The ribbon is "Spring Moss" from Paper Trey Ink and the flowers are from Prima, which I purchased from No Time To Stamp Ribbon Store.

This is a really large template and can hold lots of goodies. It is 7 3/4" tall, 6 1/4" wide and 3" deep. I will be putting some Bath and Body Works goodies for my best friend Lynda's Birthday. Lynda and I have been best friends for over 20 years and I just love giving to her. I am sure it is because she is always giving to me in so many ways.
