Stupid Power

I live out in the boonies in case I've never told you that before. Granted it only takes me 10 minutes to get town. Everyone treats it like you live out in the middle of nowhere. Well, last night we were just finishing up dinner when the power goes out. Is it storming...no! Is it whipping up with wind...no!! It is so quiet and nothing is going on but that is the price you pay for being on an EMC for power. I loved being on Georgia Power.

Anyway, for the now promised project that I told you I would post last night.

I used an expanding file folder for this. I drilled holes in the top so I could make it into more of a purse. I used grommets that I colored with copics to match the grosgrain ribbon that I used to run along the edges. I used Crate Paper (Avenue Collection - Glam) to cover the front. Because I was making this for a friend of mine I put her initials on the bottom left with Making Memories and Target Rubons. The "purse strap" is a belt I got on clearance for $2.

I totally know what you mean about the power. I used to go without power for a week because I was on Georgia power but I lived in NC and we were always the last ones to get fixed.

Anyway, I love this. So cute and clever. Fabulous job.
