Y'all I'm so excited......................

I know you’ve heard me mention my “adopted daughter” before, but for those who haven’t, here’s the story. Five years ago one of my dearest friends, Pat, died of ovarian cancer and prior to her death she told me that Cathy, her youngest child of four grown children would really need me and more or less asked me to be there for her. Well, after Pat’s death, I guess you could say that Cathy and I adopted each other!!! She even calls me “Pomma”, which is a mix of Pam and Momma. At any rate, I love her dearly and I made this purse/box to hold her Christmas present this year. I actually made this on Friday night and finished it off today with the “dear tag”. I've included a front & side view, as well as a view from the back.

I totally designed the pattern in my new Funtime 2009 software and then used my Pazzles Inspiration to cut the pieces out. The cute “dear tag” came with the software…so I can’t take credit for that design. I used a round of Velcro to close the purse flap. The lovely flourish cut-out that is on the front and back were also cut with my Pazzles, using a flourish cutting file from the Pazzles “Swirls & Twirls” CD. I so enjoyed designing and decorating this box and I only hope that Cathy likes it too!
