IT'S IN THE BAG



Hello Everyone...

Tuesday, and back to work today after a 4 day weekend, which was superb!!
I totally wasted time or had time wasted for me...but accepted it.

I did manage to tidy up my files and put things in folders and such...now I cant find anything..but I will get used to it, and I will get quicker..

So...today we are here for a new challenge over at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGNS  and this fortnight we have....RECYLE...

Well, that had me scratching my head for a few days, as I had no idea what I wanted to do....

Then my jewelery parcel arrived from a party that my daughter had [and I spent too much money]...and the jewelery came in a brown carry bag with a logo on it...LIGHTBULB MOMENT!!



Then the lightbulb went out, as I forgot to photograph it before the after...

But, none the less...this is my recycled brown paper bag...and I used a gorgeous Snowman digi, from CSD..and beautiful Spellbinders Snowflake, and the Sentiments from LOTV...papers from my stash.



A close up of "Snowman & Birdhouse'....coloured with pencils and copics and liquid pearls dotted about...

So there we go, a new challenge...RECYCLE...and if you hop over to Crafty Sentiments Blog  you can see what my teamies have come up with..they are all so clever...

Thats it, all done, time for my roast beef and lashings of gravy....so will see you tomorrow...
Thanks for stopping by...see you then..

Luv CHRISSYxx

That's why I always recommend 3 way lightbulbs. If one stage goes out, there's always 2 more. Maybe not the brightest bulb, but... :)
It's obvious you HAD no choice but to spend the money on jewelry...you needed that bag! All for the sake ofcrafting. Way to make us fellow crafters proud! Love your Wonderland recycled gift bag.
