What happens in VEGAS stays in VEGAS! I just think this mini is just "CHERRY". This mini purse is of course also fashioned after the "pita purse". It's exterior paper is that wonderful and expensive paper by Paper Studio. Thank goodness Hobby Lobby frequently puts it on sale! The zebra print is actually flocked, so feels like real fur. Look at that fabulous closure, it is a roulette wheel. Couldn't get more perfect than that! Charms are a set of cherries (that I enameled red, they were completely silver) and a lucky number 7!! I did not have a black purse handle, so I used Stayz On ink to change from reddish brown handle to black. It is not a solid black, but you kind of can still see wood grain through the black That was fine with me. I am very pleased with the result.
The inside of the purse is further carrying out the red, black and white theme. Several different patterns make up the pages. Some have ribbon closures, some with contrasting stitching. There are 20 pages for 4x6 pictures. There are several tags. These are placed into a pocket that is double matted with a charm of an Ace of Hearts . I used Glossy Accents to "shiny' up the printed playing cards on the mat. Tag pulls are 3-dimensional cherries, that are so very cute. Journaling blocks on the backside of all the tags.
Hope you like this mini. I am really quite happy with it. Leave me a comment and let me know your Vegas story. Thanks for looking!
