Another Brown Bag.....

Good morning! I am going back to work today after having 11 days off........I know, I know, no violins for me! LOL! Once I am back in the classroom, it will be like I never left. Maybe my students even missed me..... a little! ; ) I have another altered paper sack to show you. I actually converted this one into a card. Once again, I raided my stash for little pieces and embellishments, and this is what I came up with. The butterfly was cut using a Spellbinder's die, inked up, and given a generous amount of glitter. I had the crocheted flower from another project that didn't get used.

I added a Melissa Frances rub on to a metal rimmed tag. And gold glitter was added to the metal part. The paper is Papertrey Ink and Basic Grey. A few pearls were added as well as some stick pins for antennae.
A bit lumpy......just like I like it!
My girl is still home on spring break.....but today she is with a sitter. She misses school so much! She has been wanting to color pictures everyday for her teacher.......she will have quite a stash to give her come Monday! Wish I could have spent the whole week with her, but work calls........it is time I go back!

Have a great day!!! And thank you for stopping by!
