Default TLC355 ~ Decorated Bags ~ (12/12/11)

Hi Friends!

It's less than two weeks until Christmas! Not that I'm counting...LOL. I heard a saying the other day that really struck home with me... It's not what's under your tree that's important... it's who's around it.

This week we're doing bags. You can either alter a bag you already have or make a bag. Bags are all the rage for gifts these days. They're reusable and can hold just about anything!

Here's my sample:

~ Santa Kitty Sack ~

Remember, when uploading, to include KEYWORD TLC355 (no spaces)

You can view the entire TLC355 gallery HERE.

Today I am joined by our guest designer Holly M (hollerinastamps). She made this gorgeous bag shown in the thumbnail. She will be uploading it to the gallery in the morning.

Thanks so so much, Holly!!

So excited to be the guest designer this week, thanks Holly and Joan!!

I was very happy to see the theme for this week's TLC, I love to make pretty bags for my gifts. The box in a bag found in the resource section is quick, easy and fun to make. Here's my Merry Gift Bag

A big thanks to Toy (aka Holly McMillen) for this challenge.
I made a version of her cat bag for a friend in the hospital and then I added my own Santa Dog Bag.

Thanks for your inspiration and the challenge, Holly!!

What happened to TLC 356? I can't find it anywhere. Did we just skip from 355 to 357?
