Welcome to the 2nd InStyle Stamps Blog Hop!

Our Theme this month is:
Contain Yourself!

We have lots of fun in store for you today! Make sure you head on over to the Instyle Stamps Forum where we will be chatting from now until 11 PM EST! There is going to be many mini contests with prizes throughout the day. When you get to the forum click on the blog hop thread. You don't want to miss this!!!

The DT have been working on their creations all month for this fun event! We were to make/alter some type of container. Like last month, after you go and view all of the other DT's projects, make sure you head on over to the InStyle Stamps Blog to vote for your favorite project! The DT member who gets the most votes will win a prize. And you can win a prize just for voting! All you have to do is place your vote; then leave a comment on the post with the poll to be entered for the GRAND PRIZE! You need to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. The contest will remain open until 11:59pm EST on Saturday, April 25th, and winners will be announced on Sunday, April 26th.

For my project, I made this fun top note purse, which I got the directions from my friend Anita! I used Molly for my project....I mean who can resist a fun shopper girl when you are making a purse! I colored Molly with my Copics! Used my SU top note die for the front and back of my purse. Papers used were SU cardstock, and My Mind's Eye. Punches: MS branch, and Retro flowers. Bling, center flower, tulle, pearls, and ribbon were from my stash.

Don't forget that all InStyle Stamps are on sale until April 30th
