"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

With 13 grandkids, I'm always trying to come up with new ideas for a little extra surprise.  We give each of the grandkids a gift card at Christmas and the last two years, an ornament for each of them.  This year, I was working on something to put a card and ornament in for each of them.  This sure saves me gift wrapping time!  Tomorrow I will post the briefcases I designed and create for the grandsons.

These are the purses I designed and created for each of the girls:

I used a variety of cardstock and decorative paper.  Some of the purses have rosette flowers and some have flowers using the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Movers and Shapers Tattered Flowers die.  I like the Movers and Shapers dies because the images are smaller than those on the on the Bigz dies.
