Okanagan, BC, Canada
Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Birthday Party Gift Bag

I made this Birthday Party bag for the anything goes challenge at Not Just Cards this month.    I used a cute image from Milk Coffee.  The image is called Fairy Princess.   I think she is just perfect for a little girls birthday. 

I made the gift bag by folding a paper lunch bag in half and decorating it with stars, doilies, flowers and a sentiment.  I coloured the image and accents with glitter glue, Distress Ink and Copic Markers.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a creative month.  Please join in our challenge this month, just create your project and enter it here.
