SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING can make anything you like as long it has everything to do with the Theme AND it has to be better get your thinking cap on and wohooooo start being CREATIVE...

This is what I made for this weeks fabby challenge:

When I heard the new theme for this weeks challenge I immediatley thought of Love.....and I made  A LOVE GIFT BAG to start the NEW YEAR with.....I know it does look a bit small..but I can tell ya it is not hehehe you can even put a nice present for someone in the bag......

I used an "old" bag and altered it with a lovely image from a girl, worked on her with Crackle Paint Rock Candy just like the roses, to give it that special look......

Even the little flowers on the front of the bag are worked on with Crackle Paint Rock Candy.....Underneith the image I used a heart shaped doily. The papers that I worked with are from Graphic 45 Baby and Bride. Collection....

This is the back of the bag....The back of the gift bag has the papers from Graphic 45 on it. Just that...I kept it very simple on the back cause the front of my project has more then enough on it....only thing that I attached was the lace....

This is a picture of the top of the bag....I thought I would use lace for keeping it together..... I distressed everything with Rusty HingeVintage Photo and Worn Lipstick

And this is my whole project when it is finished.....I attached the lace at the back so when you look in the front it looks different then when you place it in front....I thought that would be nice to do something different then what I usually worked on some pearls right through the 2012.......Everything I make has a meaning so also my Love gift bag.....I need for you to understand that A New Year had New opportunities and when you have found LOVE keep holding on to LOVE is the KEY to a NEW YEAR, so CELEBRATE LOVE in 2012......So do I make any sence?? guys you wanna have fun too....then come on over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog and surprise us by making something old and new and VINTAGY.....and while your there check out my AMAZING teamies creations, they will blow your goodness everything is sooooooooooooooo beautifull.....

  2. Hi Terry. Your alterred paper bag is beautiful! It looks NOTHING like an old paper bag! :) I love the vintage image of the little girl that you chose. Your flowers are so lovely with the Rock Candy Stickles on them. I love the lace on either side of your bag. It really gives it that vintage feel. And the doily underneath your little girl is perfect! You did a beautiful job on this piece! <3 Candy

  3. What a transformation, cannot believe this was an old paper bag. Love the vintage feel and the gorgeous image along with the flowers and lace. The heart doily is a lovely touch. A wonderful gift in itself. Happy New Year. Tracy x
