A new Monday Challenge

over at Friends of Speedy TV. The weeks is to decorate a gift bag.

. My friend Linda has retired after 26 years with the California Highway Patrol 
and her retirement party was Saturday. I decorated this bag for her gift to take to the party.
  We have been friends for 41 years and this was a special moment to be included as part
 of her family at the party with all her peers.Both her sons were able to be there, one all 
the way from Texas. Linda  received lots of recognition, certificates and awards for
 her exemplary service, very touching! 
Using a premade gift bag I stitched on a piece of sparkly Bo Bunny dp with
 a coordinating pink strip cut out with a Martha Stewart punch.Although it 
doesn't show all the dots are glittered!! My friend Martha sent me some 
Washi take and this piece seemed to be a fun match. The center was 
cut out with a Spellbinder
Opulent Ovals and stamped with sentiments from
 the Be Wild & Free Set,  Celebrate Big Set and Dogwood Blossoms Set.
The congratulations letters were die cut but dont know who is
 the maker. The big peachy blossom is a My Favorite Things
  with some flower soft for the center. The tag is a
Spellbinder scalloped circle and the flower is a p
rovocraft die. I dyed some ribbon to match
 and there you are a quick gift bag.

Who doesnt need gifts bags so hop on over and join the Challenge this week, looking forward to seeing you there!

Winner will take home this Set.
