For my 'fruity' project I decided on a picnic caddy..
full of yummy treats, for my girls.
I know they're in their 20's but
you're never too old for sweeties!!  

For the picnic caddy I followed the brilliant, step-by-step tutorial,
by Katie of Clearly iStamp
I just changed the handle, because I don't have a large punch.
I used an oval nestie instead.. 
and then used the oval nestie with a slightly larger scalloped one,
to cut a little frame from the DP.

Here's a pic of what the caddy will look like 
10 mins after the girls get their hands on it..
