Old bag, new bag!

I feel like I have abandoned my poor new blog! I have been having computer issues and my wonderful hubby has been kind enough to transfer the brains of my laptop to a loaner for me! I am very slooooow to adapt to change and have been fighting the transfer tooth and nail!! I finally caved when my poor laptop started playing taps! I am using new picture software that I am trying to get the hang of, so please bear with me!

Ok, just a quickie project to share! I needed a gift bag, but was fresh out of anything generic! So, I did what any stamper would do in a moment of crisis! I took out an old Bath & Body (LOVE them!!) gift bag and altered it! I used Blue Bayou and Very Vanilla card stock. Stamp sets were Baroque and Doodle This from Stampin' Up. I used Navy, White, Pink Passion and Old Olive ink pads and blended all of the color with a blender pen. I curled the large flowers to make them look more 3D and topped them all of with purple and green Stickles. I used jumbo flower brads in the center of the big flowers! My recipient went ga ga over the bag! In fact, she seemed more excited about the bag than the contents! Next time she just gets the bag! Big, toothy grin! :)

Have a great day everyone!

I love this bag! What a great idea! And this one is so pretty. I think that in itself would be a great gift!
