Lollipop Crafts Challenge #25

Hi! Hope everyone enjoyed the weekend! I took the whole week off last week so I certainly enjoyed my long weekend! LOL It sure went by fast though! I didn't do much crafting while I was off. I got quite some rest instead. I was going to bed around 9:30-ish. I really needed that!

It has been a week since my son started pre-school. I am not sure if this is normal but it seems like my son is afraid of strangers more than ever, more so than before he started school. Also, he was fine the first couple of days but now he refuses to go! I have to keep reassuring him that I would pick him up after school. Is this normal? Should I be concerned? I am really concerned. I feel like he is stressing out on it. He shouldn't be at this early age, right? Yes, I am stressing out! LOL On top of it all, my mother in law is not helping much. I take him to school and here she is telling me that it's okay for him not to go if he doesn't want front of him! {sigh}

This another fun challenge at Lollipop Crafts! My awesome friend, co-owner of Lollipop Crafts, Kris is our hostess this week. This week's theme? ANYTHING BUT A CARD! This is such a perfect challenge for me now since I do need to crack up some items for Valentine's Day! Our sponsor this week is Meljen's Designs and this cool sentiment is perfect for little treat bags or boxes.

I have always wanted to make a candy purse (I think this is what you call it) so I used one my recycled purse and reduced to 4.5x3.5x2. Yes, I did the template manually so I can have it on file for later use. It uses up a whole 12x12 sheet of paper.

Cardstock is by Bazill. Patterned paper is by Bo Bunny.

Our team has some amazing samples so for more inspiration, please hop over to Lollipop Crafts!
