Little Lady Bag and Notepad

Warning...the photo you are about to see STINKS!! DH returned my new camera that started to go crazy and I have not been to town to replace it yet. I had our DD dig up my first digital camera and this was the result. I think it was a 3mp camera, sure did not take great pics. Anyhow, here it is, keep in mind IRL this is stnkin' cute.

The bag was made on the Cricut Expression using the Doodle charm and George Cartridges and Design Studio Software. I am working on the cut file as soon as it is fit to share I will share with you, I have to work out a few kinks and make sure everything fits better yet.

The Notepad was made with Doodle charm cartridge and padding compound. You cut the ladybug cover using the shadow mode,the paper inside is cut using the blackout mode on printer paper.

Bracelet made with various beads, the ladybug was from Oriental Trading it is a glass bead and so very cute. When I make little girl bracelets like this one I always use a double crimp bead on each end.

I love ladybugs but here in SD we have had a population boom with the Asian Beetle, they are more orange then a ladybug, they stain when you squash them, they bite, stink and are an all around nuisance. So they really make me adore the Little Lady, the true Lady Bug.

Happy Stamp Day!

Just TOO cute Sara!!! You have the DNR to thank for the Asian Beetle. They were brought here to help. HELP??? They stain curtains & carpets and yes they sure do stink. They stink so bad the birds don't even want to eat them. And they bite hard! I agree it really makes you appreciate the "true" ladybug SO much more!
