Tote Bag with Tilda!

Hi dear friends!! The Magnolia-licious DT has a new challenge with the new month!!  I'm so glad you came by and maybe you will consider joining in this August challenge! I sure hope so!  All the details are on the Magnolia-licious Highlites blog.  It's worth the trip over to the blog-you have just GOT to see what the team has created!! OH, MY!!
 My main image is this beautiful Tilda from the newest collection, called Turning Leaves.  This is number 325 and is LINKED RIGHT HERE. Diana has the best selection around of Magnolia stamps, deeply discounted, club discounts for new collections AND store credit on every purchase! Add that to attentive customer service!
 My tote is a template from My Time Made Easy and is called Tote-All.  For me, and for most teachers, Autumn is about carrying totes to and from school with all the work we have to do!! So many of us have collections of Tote bags!! This one is a wonderful size for a special gift or gift certificate!

 Tilda in a close up!
 The bag~
Now the template comes with a pattern for a back pocket to put on it! Be still my heart~this was so fun~ The pocket is perfect for inserting a tag with your gift!
 And for the tag I used #309 (mini form!) called TILDA WITH DAISIES AND MUSHROOMS. Of course, I had to color her to match!  (Picture deleted here because I'm a fumble fingers at the keyboard!)

 The tag inserted!
Here's a pic of the tag (that did not get deleted!)   If you've read this far and are wondering why this bag fits Diana's challenge called Autumn Splendor, I'll tell ya. Part of Western NY is called the Grape Belt!  There are vineyards everywhere and we all pray that the farmers have an acceptable crop with this terrible lack of rain.  (It's been a bit better here this week-about 3 inches fell!) Since Grape jelly is my favorite I think I met the challenge!
Sorry to have rambled so long!  If you're at all interested at this point (LOL!) I used BV01, 02, 13, 04 and 17 to created Tilda's purple clothes!
Thanks for coming by and please remember to check out the team's inspirational creations on the blog linked at the top of the post!
Have a wonderful Thursday!
Cheryl
