Summer Fun Grab and Go Bag

I had seen and loved the idea of having a little tote stocked and ready to go at all times. So I picked up this simple tote at the Dollar Store. Its just perfect for a grab and go bag for just a dollar!!!

I wanted to decorate it in some way and was thinking I would try to put some iron on patches or something.....sooooo it sat in my closet for several weeks because I never think to buy patches lol.

So today when I was painting I thought I would try painting on it instead (since my 10 in 10 deadline is coming up quick lol). I was going to use stencils to paint "Summer Fun" but then I couldn't find my stencils. So I dug through my scrap stash and decided on this:

I put letter stickers on it:

Painted OVER the stickers:

I let it dry for 24 hours before I peeled the stickers:

I might add something more to it but for now my bag is stocked with travel wipes, hand sanitizer, mini suntan lotion, a towel, bathing suit for my son, and some small outdoor toys. I am all set for my play dates to the beach, park, whatever!
