By the Sea

Today I'm sharing another great Prettie Peek - introducing Life's Treasures Sophia! How darling is she??? I used this great new image to make a sweet little Tiffany Purse (using a die cut from Creative Cuts and More) for my daughter. Pull up a chair...it's story time!

We spent her spring break in Corolla, NC, and every day we went for a walk to look for shells. Some days it was the whole family, some days she went with her grandparents, and one day it was just the two of us (on the beach, anyway - she and I took several walks out on the sound, to bird watch and see sunsets). She and I went for a sunrise walk one morning, and found a few great shells. She brought an amazing collection home. Before I made this little purse, she and I spent about an hour looking through the shells, talking about where she found them and why she picked them to bring home. I asked her to pick out a few of her small favorites so I could make her a surprise. I colored the image and put the shells inside the purse. I threaded ribbon through the slots in the back, under the purse, and back over the top, looping them around a button I added.

Much to my satisfaction, she was thrilled when I gave this to her! It's been given a place of honor on her nightstand, where she can get out her favorite shells and look at them anytime she wants :)

Sweet story. Sweet image. The die cut looks identical to one that Stampendous had a few years back.

I love the purse and I would give it a place of honor on my nightstand too. Lovely story.
