Faux leather Trunk

I was in Traverse City, Michigan the beginning of the month.. and HOLY COW, I wasn't ready for the frost on the car when I woke & headed out to breakfast the second morning I was there. I loved that the trees were turning, so it made driving just a bit more interesting. The place we stayed in wasn'told, but it was rustic..really rustic. I loved alot of the textures that surrounded me, everywhere in the place.

Day 3 it finally donned on me that ... um... I haven't done much texturing in my recently paper crafts. Heck I haven't made a 3D item in a while either...

So I took a moment, after making some Cowboy Spaghetti by Rachel Ray, and put this together.

I am still redesigning the handle, since I am not totally sold on this one. I want curves. I want stitching..

It has a box on the inside - would hold a gift card, some sweet treats, even some of that instant coffee with packaged creamer & sugar.

CS: Crumb Cake
Ink: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Big Shot: Texture plate (embossed)
Silver brad, pearl, Linen thread
