Creative Inspirations Weekly Challenge.

Good morning everyone,
It's Wednesday again already!! I have not posted for a week now!!! Talk about withdrawals. I have missed my craft studio.

I did have a good time while away but we did have an accident on the mountain riding the ATV's. My son rolled his 4 wheeler right in front of me coming off of the mountain and talk about scare me to death!!! He is fine other than some stiffness and lots of bruises. Thank God for that. I think he has learn a big lesson and lots of respect for these machines finally. I have to tell you that I have had night frights each evening since the accident. I have relived it over and over after I close my eyes at night. Not something that I want to live again. To watch your child rolled a 750 pound machine over them and down a hill. We are all home now and safe. And it was so nice to spend time with my mother and see my 2 brothers.

On to my project for today............
I have my Design Team creation for Creative Inspirations Challenge up for your viewing. The challenge is BROWN PAPER BAGS. I have to say that you really need to pop over to the Challenge blog and see all of the different fun ways the DT have done these bags up. Beautiful work!!! I hope that you will join the fun this week and decorate a bag and post it for our viewing.

I don't care for my it is just to busy or something...........not sure but just don't flow right for me. I do hope that it will give you some inspiration. I received a **NEW** fun little tool for my birthday and I have to tell you all about it. It is an I*top brad maker.................... yep the brads you see on my bag are made with this fun little tool and the punches that you have to buy to go with it for the different sizes of brads. I have used the same papers as I have used on the bag for my brads. I have wanted one of these for a long long time and I can now say that I own one thanks to my wonderful mother. THANKS MOM!!!!!!!!! I have used a very cute Tilda by Magnolia that can be bought at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. I have cut the image out with my oval nesties and have added some Prima Flowers that can also be bought at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More. I have added some black pearls in the middle of the flowers and punched a few black pine leaves added a bit of red raffia. I have added a few Crystal Dome Glitter Stickers. I have a green sheer bow tied to the top of the bag that I will hang a small tag from with a message for the person that I give this to full of treats. I have colored the image with my copic markers and watercolor pencils with a tad bit of Tim Holtz Distressed ink.

It's good to be back and I will be blog hopping to see your creations....... I can't wait to see what you have all made while I was away....
hugs to all and have a WONDEFUL Wednesday,
