just call me bag lady, part 2

Welcome to just call me bag lady, part 2.  No one got the exact total left to make right on yesterday's post... so I'll open it up on this post... keep guessing, a few of you were close..  Today's post have the skier theme... if you need pinecone ideas click the other post.



I haven't used much patterend paper on the bags, but since the wedding colors are yellow and gray, I thought it'd be fun to throw in some Authentique paper and play along with their March sketch challenge.

Next up I have two entries for the new Lawnscaping Challenge, which is find inspiration, I found inspiration from the latest issue of Real Simple (see the fun chevron purse on the left).  Then over the breakfast table this morning Mr. Ben found inspiration from the box of Cheerios and wanted to play along.  I got Dan to demostrate the multi-loop bow for him so he could enter Emily's guest challenge on Do More with Less.


And 2 more bags to share, I think they would work for the CAS-ual Friday challenge "a pattern, an image and a sentiment".

Since I'm not done with the bags, I may have another post to share...  or perhaps I'll move on to something else...  I still like Lynn's idea that there should be vote for favorites.

Materials: will post later
