National Scrapbook Day - MPS Challenge #4 Mother's Day

Happy National Scrapbook Day! I didn't get much accomplished today, but I did manage get a couple of challenges done! I should have updated my new Cricut Expression 2 before I started, because I spent half the night battling with my cuts and then spent the other half updating my Gypsy and new E2. 

I made 73 explosion purses last week with my fourth graders to take home to their moms for Mother's Day. These little purses were found at Qbees Quest. By Friday I was about to pull my hair out, but when I saw them all completed I knew the moms will LOVE them!! So, when Robyn, aka My Pink Stamper, had a Mother's day challenge today, I knew I could make a couple of these super quick.  We took lots of family pictures on Easter so they worked perfectly inside the purses. I got to use Robyn's Happiest Moments stamp set for the sentiment on the front of the purse. I added some embellishments, pictures and of course a little bling and called it done!

Here are the two I made today for this challenge:

Here are one class set of purses made last week:
