By The Cute And Girly - September Challenge - Indian Summer

WOW can you believe another month has gone by and were getting ever closer to christmas...but at By The Cute And Girly this month the lovely Carol has chosen the theme "Indian Summer" we can hang on to the warmth and bright colours just a little longer - even if it is just in blogland !!!....:0) as usual the rest of the Dt Girls have some fabulous inspiration for you so pop on over and take a look.....

For my Project a drew a little inspiration from blogland...from the lovely Lorraine who had created a wonderful gift set so i just had to have a go....i followed the tutorial by Jackie Topa  ...and it was much easier than i thought and i will defo be making some more!!
the instructions can be found Here

firstly i made some simple cards....

and matching gift tags

also a couple of bag-a-lope gift bags

and finally i covered a notebook to match

i then set about making the storage box

and the finished project..

i have altered it slightly from the original design and ive also kept the outside very simple..i think next time ill decorate that too :0)

i would also like to enter the following challenges...
