Cut It Up - Oh Brother! (Or Sister in my case)

Happy Friday!

I love Fridays now more than I have in a long time
because I am working now, the weekend is long awaited :)

Well, I don't know how, but I have managed to
get some crafting done for the challenge starting over at

Cut It Up
Oh Brother!
(Or Sister/Bestie)
Make something for your sibling or someone who is
like a sibling to you.
Share the story behind that person and your creation :)

Our very own Katrina Brown will

and Mystery Embellishments :)

My Project:
So my Sister has a birthday coming up next month
so I thought I would make her a cute purse and
fill it with either cash or a gift card.

I used Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More 2
and cut the Lipstick Container at 10 1/4.

The paper is from Crete Paper/American Crafts
I used a twisty tie from CTMH as the handle.
I had a cute brad to use for the "snap" and
just added some fun embellishments I had in my stash.

I hope my sister will think this is as cute as I do,
but I'm sure she will like what's inside more :)

Come and join us over at Cut It Up for this fun challenge!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
