My Time to Stamp Out Alzheimers - Challenge!

Today sparked the beginning of the Stampin Out Alzheimers event! You can join and be a part of this fabulous community with a chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes and download a BUNCH of cool FREE stuff, with a minimum $5.00 donation (use the PayPal widget in my right sidebar) ------>

Let me just say that ONE of the free downloads is worth $5 by itself and I downloaded a LOT more than one thing today :O) Totally worth it!!! PROMISE! This is such a worthy cause...whether someone you know has been affected by this debilitating disease or not. I for one hope to never know anyone affected...and if I can help in a tiny way to bring about a BIG change, I'm happy to do it!

I'm co-hosting a 3-D Timeless Template challenge with fellow My Time to Create DT member, Tamara. Be sure to join the forum to see what the challenge is all about :O)

~ Here is my sample for our challenge ~

Inside

If you can't tell from the pics, I created this gift to hold different seed packets on each side that show through the oval windows on the pockets. The inside holds carefully folded gardening gloves, secured with a ribbon. I thought this made the cutest, SIMPLEST, inexpensive gift ($4.97 gloves, six $0.99 seed packets...and the $5 Take Along Tote Timeless Template...that I can use OVER and OVER and OVER again...PRICELESS)! I can't wait to give it away!! I was going for clean and simple and I think I achieved that today so I'm proud of myself :O)

My color palette came from Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite, Color Challenge #7. I loved the fresh color scheme and couldn't get it out of my head, so I went with it!
So, with that, please make a small donation and hop on over to the Stampin Out Alzheimers site to play along! There are a ton of challenges and prizes each day! You don't want to miss it!

You e been on a role lately...all of your creations are so pretty. I really like this inexpesive gift idea. We're having a better day here and we are getting ready to take Ethan fishing! I'm hoping this pain medicine is working.

Kristin this is a perfect gift! Something about spring makes me want to give flowers and seed packets to everyone! The window you made on the template looks so cute with the seeds poking through. BRilliant! Hoping to join in our your challenge for SOA...
