Angels Landing Wednesday...celebrating Friends!

This week the Angels Landing Design Team is celebrating Friendship! What little girl would not love a secrets purse to share with her BFF, with a little kitty watching over her secret notes? This little purse is held close with velcro dots, and has a little envelope and writing paper inside. I colored the kitties with colored pencils and blended with OMS.

Just write a little note or secret and hide it in the folder...then exchange with your BFF! I have been in a nostalgic mood lately, and remember writing notes and folding them up really small to share with friends. It was fun trying to sneak them to each other! The instructions behind this purse can be found here, on Julia's blog. When I saw it, I thought about how much I miss having that BFF to share secrets with, things that only the two of you knew. How cool it was that you two had that special secret.

Be sure to stop by all the DT blogs today to see what other friendship inspired projects you find!
I know I always get so inspired by all the creations!

oh, what a wonderful idea! and I have always been a kitty collector, so I would have been all over this as a younger version of myself!!! and of course we all had to fold those notes in so many fancy kinds of shapes! I know they still do that because my sons get notes just like that! ;)

you did a beautiful job! it was fun serving on the DT with you! :)

Lauri - you make the most wonderful projects! I always look forward to see your creative mind at work every week. You have been such an amazing inspiration. I will be casing this project for sure for Christmas gifts as I have some teenagers who would love something like this! Thanks so much for the idea. Love the color combo and papers you used on your project and the kitties were a perfect touch!

It's been a remarkable journey these past 3 months with AL. Thank you so much for all of the support that you have given me. You have truly been an inspiration!

I'll still be around to stalk your blog! *wink*

Such a darling idea -- I can't imagine any little girl of a certain age range who wouldn't just adore this.

You always come up with such innovative and original uses for my images, Lauri. It has been a pleasure having you on the AL Summer DT. You've gone above and beyond the minimum requirements, often coming up with special "extras" to share.

Thank you for all the effort you've put into the team. I am so glad you answered that first DT Call and I had the chance to get to know you over these past few months.

What a wonderfully cute project. I just picked up some velcro dots - lucky me - now I have a project in mind for them. Thanks for the inspiration.

What a cool idea. I will file this one away until my 4 yrd old gets a bit older - she will love it. Really nice use of the DSP btw. TFS!

Look forward to making this for my
Grand Daughters when they get a little older!
Beautiful work!
