Dream Valley Challenge 19 - Anything Goes

Over at Dream Valley, we have a super-easy challenge for you: Anything Goes!!  And, as we can make ANYTHING over at Dream Valley (not just cards), I was spoilt for choice of what to make for this challenge - a card, jewellery, a scrap layout, a framed picture......and FINALLY decided on a handbag!

I first saw this amazing creation in our Top 3 for challenge 12 Surprise theme by The Navy Wife.  I absolutely HAD to give it a try and found that the instructions are really well written, so it is actually pretty easy (although a little fiddly) to make!  Here is the link for the instructions.

I made this handbag for my sister in law as a birthday card and voucher holder....and I included a bracelet too.  This is the inside of it:
And I also made one for my friend's 40th birthday:
I made little cards for us each to write a birthday message on and they were tucked into the circles in the centre of the handbag:
Yep, I LOVE making these cute little handbags and people really love them!

So, what will you make for us this challenge?  Unfortunately, we have been let down by our sponsor this fortnight, but MELLY is very kindly offering a very lucky person a £10 voucher to use in the winner's choice of either Crafty Emma's delish shop OR Saturated Canary's Digi's image Esty store!! Pity I can't enter - I LOVE Emma's store AND the Sarurated Canary's gorgeous images!
I can't wait to see what you create for us:0)
