Well, are you all recuperated from Halloween? I am. And I am ready to work on Thanksgiving and Christmas now. I had a very busy weekend and I will get to that in my next blog post. ;) (I should say my son had a very busy weekend.) hehe
It was my "Oldest" nieces birthday this past week. (28) Shhhh! I didn't say that...:) I just made up a really quick bag skirt that I got from Penny Duncan Creations. You can find the file here PDC Gift Bag Skirt Scallop. Penny has lot's of cut files in a variety of types. Check her out and tell her I sent ya! She is a wonderful person and extremely talented. Very generous as well.
I had to modify it a bit (I hope you don't mine Penny) to fit a smaller gift bag with handles so I shrunk it down a bit and then I wanted it to layer so tweaked it a bit for that too. I think it turned out really cute.
I also wanted to share the gift that I gave her as I am not the only talented crafter in my family. I have a long list of creative Grandmothers, Aunts and Cousins. :) One of my cousins, Kim, makes these wonderful key fobs. I love them so much I bought one for almost everyone of my family and friends. :) Plus if you need something special, I bet if you asked her she could find it for you. :) <3 her! Here is her facebook page Quadmom Designs :)
OK, so, I played around in Picasa and learned how to make a collage (very interesting). I still have a lot to learn about this program, but am having fun doing it. hehe Here is the gift and gift bag collage style ~
And here are just some regular style :)
Until next time....
