A Gift From the Heart

Morning all, just a quick post from me today.  Over on Anything Goes Challenge Blog we have a new theme 
"Alter Something or anything but a card"
Head on over and join in the fun!!

I have quite a few brown paper bags, these are ideal for dvd's, books, cd's etc.  I can't get enough of the new Magnolia collection " Sweet crazy Love" and have probably used these the most.  I also relented and used some of the 12x12 Magnolia papers that can be purchased at the Craft Den.   

I tied some lace, pink tulle and string around the handle and attached a charm to add to the shabby chic style.   Used a button and one of my Mum's crochet flowers. 

I made this little pin myself, I searched everywhere for the pin stopper.  Tied some more string and cheese cloth to hold up the beads.  The heart behind is one from Marianne Designs and the swirl is one of my favourites.  Everything has been distressed with walnut satin.

Awesome bag and so beautifully designed Tamara. Oh how I wish I could craft like you. One of these days I'd like to showcase one of your designs on my blog for inspiration for a card I create but would never consider doing so without your permission. I've got to get busy and start crafting again. Just feel lost lately with NO MOJO. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous creation. "Hugs"
