Totally Gorjuss Gift Bag~

Hi All,

Second posting of the day...Amazing when I have watched sport all day on tv,("F" and tennis) been to my aerobic class and sunbathed!! Please has anyone got more hours in their day they are willing to swap with me for something!!

Tonight I wanted to enter the Totally Gorjuss challenge and was delighted when I found out it was to make a bag....I love decorating these litle brown lunch bags.
This year I am going to use them for my Christmas Gifts, cannot wait to cover them in lovely Christmas paper and embelishments.

The brown spotty paper used is from the fabulous DCWV Linen Closet, I have also used my friend Angie's lovely Tilda with her feet in the water and the little ring she can sit on, and coloured with copic's.

The paper flowers were handmade and stickles used to give them sparkle.
I am not sure the sentiment shows up very well, perhaps I should have stamped it on a matt and not straight on the paper, but it's done now. It reads "On the Sand, By the Sea, wishing you were here with me...Sweet.

I have entered this bag into a couple of challenges, details below:

Cute Card Thursday--Recycle
One Stop--Brown and Pink
Just Magnolia--Sketch
Totally Gorjuss--Make a Gift Bag
The Corrosive challenge--Flowers

This is adorable! I have never tried decorating one of these bags and I think I will have to give it a go. You are right, they would be brilliant for Christmas.
