bbtb2 caterpillar challenge

happy monday:) hope your weeks off to a fun start. 
this week over at BBTB2 our adorable carole has chosen the challenge to be using the caterpillar from walk in my garden cart. if you dont own this one its all good , go ahead and use a caterpillar from another cart or just create one using circles :) 

i made a box/bag using one sheet of an  8 1/2X11  piece of can find the super easy directions ~>here<~ it's super simple to make and cute.

along with the cute caterpillar i used the grass cut (border feature)  leaves and bread tag from WIMG cart.
i used buttons and ribbon for the flowers and stems adding viva decor pearl pens for the centers.  computer generated the saying added some twine and a teensy clothespin
a side view. the butterfly is either an eksuccess or MS 3 step punch ( i used 2 of the steps) i forget which one, was at my buds rose's when i used it and forgot to have it accidently drop into my bag before i left :)
thanks so much for stopping by today your comments always leave me feelin warm and fuzzy :) have a great rest of day :) and dont forget to stop by the bbtb2 blog and check out the fantastic dt samples and be sure to play along with us  xxxshelly

LOVE it! I'm definitely gonna try one of these cute bags. Your colors are so springy and sweet and the button flowers are adorable. My mom used to say that to me when I complained about being short so it brings back memories. LOL Fabulous work, Chickie! xxD
