Belle Wednesday

Well - that's what I call my project for you today. Belle is also French for beautiful and that's what I think this little girl is - don't you?
For those of you that have missed this - the DT girls are posting projects/cards on the BnW blog everyday for you to be inspired by. And you can also win a stamp sometimes - just by leaving a comment. Nope - can't tell you which one it is - she's keeping that to herself :-)
Back to my project that I want to show you. I wanted to colour cute Belle sitting with Teddy for such a long time and also make a handbag. So I made the handbag during our Frändescrap event after the tutorial I had purchased from Becky Roberts. She has some really fun tutorials - so you will see some more of the things I've made from her tutorials on my blog.

To make this bag - make sure that you have matching DPs. I used my SUs, since I know they match both on the inside and the outside. Here's one side of the bag - with three pockets. Here's a pic of the larger pocket that I made to go on the otherside. Added my coloured image of sweet Belle + some pink roses.Here's how it looks when you open it. As you can see - the inside match the colours on the outside - even though the pattern is different. Used my SU punches to make the lock and attached a brad in the center. Added velcro on the back so that it closes and opens easily.
I used my SU ribbon to go all around the sides and as the handle.
Here's another angle for you. Hope you liked it! Also - hope you are ready for the new stamps that are released soon. I assure you - you don't want to miss that!!!
And yes - I have a question for you - what other projects would you like to see here - that is - anything but a card and that would be?????
Have fun and again - don't miss the release of the next set of amazing imaged for BnW!!!
