Did you say shoes and purses?

   Good morning! :)  Did someone say shoes and purses?!  NOW you have my attention!  I like shoes...a lot!  I am not a big shoe shopper, but I always pay attention to the fun and funky styles and designs..  Bags now?!  I am most definitely a bag them!  I have oodles of them!  Too many...not enough...who's to say?!   Everyone can always use a good bag right?! :)

  Ok, so what do shoes and bags have to do with my post today you may be wondering?  Well, I am glad you asked!  I belong to a wonderful blogging group!  A bunch of nutty, funny, sweet ladies have gotten together to be a part of this group and everyone gets along so great!  Well our first challenge together as a group has been posted!  (I fess was me!  I threw down the challenge!)  After some name calling and much talking negatively about me everyone started to embrace the idea!  LOL  A couple of the ladies have already met the challenge (and beautifully I might add!) and so now it is my turn!  The challenge was to make a 3d paper shoe and matching purse.  Easy peasy, right?! LOL   I sent everyone a link to this tutorial and set them free.(( Tutorial by Terry and she is quite amazing!)) The challenge isn't actually due until April 15th, but since some of the girls have begun posting their gorgeous creations I thought I would share my version too:

I am so tickled with them, because they were just so much fun to make!  Practical, no not really!  Adorable...heck yes!!  Pinks and greens make me super happy so just on principle alone I like looking at them!  I added SU!s pleated ribbon and made matching flowers for the shoe and bag from circle punches.  Of course, there is bling on both the purse and shoe!  

Side view.  I made a tiny little heel out of a strip of rolled paper.  

The inside of the shoe (which really is more like a slipper I think!) is the back side of the paper.  The paper is SU!, but is retired and it's name escapes me. 

Every shoe needs a matching bag. It is the law of Physics, I think! LOL  Same flower, but in a smaller version and bling along the flap.  The purse is made from SU!s new purse Big Shot die.  Love that thing!! Handle is made from the pleated ribbon!

One more look at the two together!  Fun project!!  Thanks for playing along ladies!  You can find their blogs along my side bar over there------------->.  It will vary as to when they post their creations, but feel free to check out their blogs!  These are some seriously creative gals!

The group has made noises about torturing me with really hard upcoming challenges!  Although I am concerned I say to you ladies..Bring it! LOL  

Hope that you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!
