Recycling a bag

Over at Ginger Snap Creations  where the focus this month is shopping (I think a few of us know what this is all about lol) One of the challenges is Bags & Tags pop over through the link for more information. Here you can see my bag with tag. I saved lots of these kind of bags when ever I go shopping, because they can make a really nice gift bag and you can usually make them with scraps but they look so cool.

In the close ups you can see I have been using Wendy Vecchi  'Art Parts' and a button given to me by the lovely Petra in one of the swaps we did together. An old bag charm fell to bits so I have used the bag from this to pop on here. The stamp I have used for the tag was a freebie from the lovely Malcolm from 'Crafty Individuals'. I do hope you like this gift bag. I am also grateful to my new followers I am always amazed that people want to follow my journey through my crafting life and I am always pleased to see you all. More news on my journaling blog to (I am so excited about this) I will me doing a monthly journal chalenge, please take my blog button (left hand side) 'Journal Journey's'  so you can be directly there with a click of the mouse. (just save as a photo and copy and paste my journal blog addy in to the button. I can'r wait to begin. And a big thank you to my friend Souix of ArtyJen for taking the time to make me some beautiful buttons for my blog. Love Dawn xx
