Take Along Tote for Back to School

I am so happy with the results of this project and I can't wait to share it with you!
I created this for 2 reasons - one is for Lauren Meader's weekly challenge - this time, to use one of her My Timeless Templates.

The other reason I created it is for a submission to The Greeting Farm/Club Anya as part of an application for their next Design Team. I plan on applying every time they have a call - eventually, I'll wear them down and they'll have to take me, right? LOL

Ok here is the Back to School Take Along Tote I created:

I have a few other views so take a look:

From the side
The inside. Look how much I could fit in the pockets! There's a spiral notepad, a mini composition book, crayons and pencils.



And here's a close-up of that sweet Dressy Anya - isn't she just the most adorable gal! I am in LOVE with these stamps - they are just so cute and so much fun to color!
Here's some more details about the tote:
All of the paper is from PaperTrey Ink. I added the red color to the floral DP with a Copic pen. I also cut the tote pattern down a little so it is a little smaller than the actual pattern. The ribbon is from PTI also. It was very easy to follow the direction to assemble the tote and I just love the results!

So that's my Friday Feature - I hope you liked it! I am off to watch a movie with hubby (our son is off with our daughter for the night - a rare treat). Have a great weekend and be sure to check back on Sunday for more artwork!
