Another challenge in the SCAL forum proved to offer many diversified designs...the rules allowed you to use however many of the elements given you chose though I did use them all in each of the designs presented and in some I did multiples of the elements in Inkscape.
Here's what I started with...from SCAL forum member, Todd.
Several members saw faces and animals and I saw one, too...
I enjoy the brain stimulation these design challenges present and learning opportunities to see things in fresh and fun ways. Here's to building brain power!

Someone looking at my purse and shoe collection suggested they would be great for giving lipstick and nail polish. What a great idea! (Thanks, Kelly!) So, I had to try out some of the different sizes I had already made. In the largest shoe is a slender lip gloss stick, a good fit for the large shoe. For a standard lipstick it seems a slightly smaller shoe is better.
I can't seem to break away from my purse and shoe themes just yet, however we've been making some beautiful roses on the Sure Cuts a Lot forum so I included one I made from the file provided there. Check it out for some great inspiration! I included in my purse a little candy with a complementary nail polish to go with the lip gloss.
These sets are fun in any size and it's one case where a 2-sided paper can be used to good advantage...I think it would be great to use as a unique gift set or party favors and a fun way to use some old jewelry or attach some pretty silk or paper flowers instead. What fun for a little girl's party!
Here's a link to some other purse and shoe sets on the Cricut messageboard in response to an earlier design I shared.
