Raspberry Suite #15...sort of...

Well, I set out to do Dawn's color challenge this week...



And I wanted to use a template from Lauren that I haven't tried yet. So I picked her Pack a Picnic template, such a cute little picnic basket!! And then my daughter wanted to help and I was trying to help with dinner and also trying to help sharpen pencils for my son and by the time I finished the picnic basket...I kinda lost track of the colors for the color challenge. OOPS!! So, it kinda goes with the challenge but I used white instead of cream and it isn't exactly perfect. But I've decided to share it anyway!



The cardstock is PTI, as is that big flourish. I love their flourish stamp set!! My daughter has a kids cuttlebug and cut the flowers out for me. So fun working together with her!



I used my apron lace punch to put a decorative border around the top. And my daughter picked out the brads to use with the handles. Thankfully she picked something that matches, hee hee!!



So...it's not perfect but we had alot of fun putting it together. I really love this template and plan on making back to school baskets for the kid's teachers next week. I can't believe summer is almost over!! Thanks for stopping by!!
