Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Sponsored by Creations by AR

Oh, how I love Tuesdays!  This week over at Tuesday Throwdown we are being sponsored by the fabulously talented, Adela at Creations by AR and she has the most outstanding 3D projects you've ever seen!  Our challenge was "What's In Your Basket", to create a basket, box, holder, anything that would hold something.  Such fun and I really loved making her 3-Pocket Caddy Template.

I adore this template and just had to fill it with some of my favorite Easter candy and add one of my favorite Sassy Studio Designs gal, Gaston Honey.  In the movie "Beauty and the Beast", there isn't a redeemable thing about Gaston, but I tried to soften her and had her peeking out over the handmade flowers.  I cut out the template, scored it and covered it with some really soft papers from The Rusty Pickle.  I added some lace from my stash colored Gaston Honey with copics and cut out some branches with my Martha Stewart punches.

Here's a view from the side.  I absolutely love how this caddy came out.

I used some ribbon from my stash to tie the middle together.

Here's a view of the caddy from the top.  Just think of all the possibilities you could do with this great template.  You could use it for any season, holiday, party, just because.  I think it would be great for a bridal shower or a bachelorette party and fill it with all kinds of party favors!

I plan on entering this in the following challenges:

Crafting Desert Divas - Easter Eggstravagaza
Crafty Bloggers Network - Spring or Pastels
Creative Stamp Friends - Easter Package
Cutie Pie Challenge - Easter
Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Pastels
Tammy's Scrapping Corner - Anything but a card
Victorine Original Challenge - Anything Easter
Without Words - A Time of Renewal

I had the best time crafting with this and wish everyone had the chance to put something fabulous like this together!  I think you should head on over to the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog and join in on our fun for the chance to win a great, user friendly template of your own!  Besides, you've got to go see what my designing team buddies have come up with to inspire you!  Great times to be had!
