A Little Paper Sack!

Good morning to you! Cort is feeling much better, not 100% but better. Her appetite is slowly increasing and she is keeping the food down.......and drinking, which is good! I am attempting to send her back to school today and myself back to work. I hope it isn't too soon!

I bought a package of mini paper sacks and have been having a ball decorating and altering them. I have a few more to show you in the days ahead, but here is my first one. I used lots of scraps that I had saved from various papers and bits. A little Theresa Collins, a little Jenni Bowlin, and a few spare pieces I had printed from my Imagine machine and the Yummy Cartridge. (The hearts ) I even had a spare leaf cut from the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. Waste not want not! Inside the little bag is a tag with a little letter I wrote to Kyle for Valentine's Day. I love that it is hidden inside the bag.
The center heart was glittered with some Doodlebug glitter. The brad and orange pom pom trim are by SU!

I love all of the dimension of these little creations! : )
Thank you so much for popping by for a visit! They are always so appreciated!
