A basket

Wooohooo!!! IT'S FRIDAY!!! Happy Friday to you all. Got any plans? Nothing special here. After a long busy weekend last weekend I think we are going to stick close to home and recharge our batteries. You just gotta have those sometimes, right?

For today I have something else I am pretty proud of. It is a basket. Yep, thanks to Lauren Meader and her timeless templates and Papertrey Ink for putting them on the market you can now make your own paper basket. And it is just the cutest basket I have seen. I love mine.

Now, this project was not as easy as the other templates I have used of hers. I had to check several times to see just exactly how to put the basket together correctly. But now that I got it figured out I am sure I shouldn't have any problems getting it together again.

Here are the deets: paper: PTI aqua mist and brown from my sisters stash; stamps: PTI believe; ink: SU! Creamy caramel; flowers: walmart and primas; brad: target $1 spot; ribbon: PTI aqua mist; button: stash from walmart; and the "buckle thingie" is from a stash I got from my sister a LONG time ago. It was cut out of brown cardstock using a cuddlebug die.

I have another great project from Lauren on Monday so please come back then and check it out.

Thanks for stopping by today!!!
