Imagine Nation Monday "Polka Dot" challenge - Episode~112

Good Morning My Creative Friends!! Welcome to another "Imagine Nation Monday" Challenge & a Guest Designer!  I am SOOO EXCITED this week because I have an AWESOME guest designer! She is none other than the VERY TALENTED, Tracy (CJtoo!) This lady is so full of life & not to mention very creative! For our challenge this week, I decided to have it be to incorporate "POLKA DOTS" in a project of your choice using your Imagine!! Tracy did just that! Check out her "OH SO CUTE" purse she designed using her Imagine! Now, Sarah (Pink Cricut) & I were discussing our challenge & we both decided to include ALL of You in our Imagine Nation Monday's! If you own an Imagine, PLEASE use it for the challenges we host, IF YOU DO NOT own one, feel free to play along making an "Imagine Like" project using pattern paper AND Polka Dots in your creation! Try to make something to look like you actually HAVE an Imagine!  

Here is a recap for this challenge:
*** Link your project up to Mr. Linky, then leave a comment!
*** Deadline for this challenge will be on Sunday, November 7th!
***MUST use an Imagine, if you own one!
***If you use a cricut only, use pattern paper & polka dots
*** Project of your choice MUST include POLKA DOTS!
*** ONE project per person please!
*** Next, HAVE FUN!;)

Here is what the card looks like opened using the brad!
HI everyone ~ I'm Tracy (CJToo) and I am super excited that Emma asked me to be a guest designer on Imagine-Nation Monday today. I live in Texas with my hubby and 2 boys, I work full-time so I have to be creative in the evenings and on week-ends. I love sharing my creativity and passion for Cricut crafting on my blog I've been blogging for almost 1 1/2 years and really enjoy sharing and getting inspiration.

Thanks for asking me to be your very first guest designer Emma - I had a total blast! :)

For my project today I created this Polka Dotted Party Purse using my Best Friends Imagine cartridge and my Cricut Imagine machine.

Polka dotted party purse -
Best Friends Imagine cartridge
2 sheets of 12x12 white cardstock
- select "fit to page" for polka dotted pattern - page 29 (outside of purse)
- select "flip" and "fit to page" button cutting purse in pattern on page 44 (liner of purse)
score lines, adhere purse together
brown trim
rustic twine ~
tag -cuttlebug die plate
thanks so much stamp ~ Papertrey Ink Mega Mixed Messages
brown marker for faux stitching
This would be a perfect party favor box for a ladies luncheon, girlfriend gift exchange, or birthday goodie bag.
Fill with treats or special gift.
In honor of our VERY 1st Imagine Nation Monday challenge, Sarah & I decided to give away this AWESOME prize package sponsored by "Peachy Keen Stamps" & "Cottage Cutz"! Just so you all know, we combined the entries from my blog AND Pink Cricut's blog for this challenge & picked one winner!
