ihp DT challenge

Hello friends!  I'm back from a busy week away at CHA!  So. MUCH. Fun!  I divided my time working booths for two teams and walking the floor with some of my i {heart} papers design team mates!  We had a blast, but somehow it always feels like such a whirlwind...we never have enough time to just visit!  LOVE you girls!  I miss you so much already!

We're posting projects for this month's design team challenge.  During the time that I was searching for ideas for our challenge I had just returned from Costa Rica...with Loretta so involved in foster dog care and Kate considering doing the same, I got the idea of using a favorite charity logo as inspiration for a project.  

I have fond memories of going out to "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF" so that is what inspired my simple, cute project.  Our Craft Lounge's Little Boogas was the perfect image for this theme.  I really wanted to use the new Echo Park Apothecary Halloween paper that I fell in LOVE with at CHA, but it isn't available yet so I used an orange print from Walk in the Park for today's project.  The sketch is this week's CPS sketch, flipped to portrait orientation on the front of a one sheet bag (see Beate's tutorial on SCS).  Instead of tying ribbon around the top as Beate did, I adhered a velvet corduroy ribbon handle between the folded edges.

Here are the ihp products I used for this project:
Scor Pal
OCL Little Boogas
Echo Park Walk in the Park designer paper
Memento Ink
Ranger tea dye distress ink
Copic markers
Real Juicy Orange Sparkly Fluff
Spellbinders Reverse Wonky Rectangles
Orange velvet corduroy ribbon
Queen & Co felt flower
Orange button
i {stick} papers redline tape

You can see what the rest of my team mates were inspired to create by visiting their blogs!  Send 'em my love!  :)
