August PTI Blog Hop ::Brown Bags!::

hi there! thanks for stopping by and participating in PTI's blog hop :D should be tons of fun to see all the inspiration... i know i'm excited!

first up, though, before my brown bag is something that could go INTO my bag if i hadn't gobbled it up last night...


doesn't all that yummy frosting make you want to drool? hehe... i know i was slobbering a bit after i made them last night. but not for long. that cupcake settled quite nicely into my tummy.

okay, onto the challenge...

we were asked to dress up a typical 'brown bag' like you used to put your lunches in.

wanna hear something funny?

i HONESTLY did not even know that this was the blog hop challenge until this morning. yesterday, i was making these exact bags for 'fun' with my friend Helene...

yeah. talk about weird! so i figured i'd share them tonight (i was going to share them sometime!) and here we are:


i chopped off the tops of both these bags with a decorative border punch or scissors.

i added a flower, some die cuts (the butterfly from PTI was thanks to Paulina from when we crafted a week ago... well, really, all those die cuts were hers :D) and a brad... then there's the PTI Signature Greetings stamps too!


i love the doily and polka dots on this one... makes me smile!

thanks for stopping by, i love reading your comments! :D
