Inspiration Elevator Blog Hop- My Purse

 Hello and good morning.....

Our main purpose here at IE is to challenge ourselves, each other and YOU to take the creative process to the next level;  to inspire growth and change in our scrapbooking; to stretch, sometimes uncomfortably, to create something fresh.
You can see all of Inspiration Elevator's previous challenges at our blog and catch us on Facebook  too.

We are thrilled to welcome back as guest designer, the delightful Denise Morrison. Denise's artsy style conveys layers of artistic and emotional significance, and we love her artful scribbles! 

We are also honoured to welcome a guest challenger this month, team alumni, creative and busy Sue Sykes, a regular contributor to Canadian Scrapbooker magazine and manager of their sketch site. Here is her challenge for us, in her own words:
We all know that the contents of our bags, whether it's a handbag, a satchel, a clutch or a backpack, reveals a lot about ourselves. This month, create a layout about the contents of your bag on any given day. Be sure to include the stories behind any unconventional items.
As a further challenge, use one of the items on your page somehow!

So here is my page.. 
I always tend to have a larger purse. I usually get a new one every 4-6 months, I get bored of the ones I have, or the ones that I like, wear out after a bit. Plus its a fun way to spice up your outfit with a cute purse. Since I'm a mom, I also tend to carry alot of things around for my kids.

I used some Chic Tags for my journaling.
The contents of my purse: wallet, glasses, camera, my phone,lotion, anti bac, pens, gum, pens, lipsticks, extra keys, bandaids, toys, usually snacks for the kids, finger clippers, eye drops, rubber bands.

I added a punched border at the top and bottom, along with some enamels and sticker strips:

Here's a complete list of this month's participating designers!  We encourage you to check out each designer's creation this month, then come on back and give the challenge a try yourself!
