MAWTT Challenge 154 - Happy Birthday! Lulu with Cake...

Hi... I'm here again with some more inspiration for our Challenge over at..

and just in case you haven't heard already ...we are celebrating our 3rd Birthday!!! Woo Hoo!! and to celebrate we are having a theme of....

'Happy Birthday'

So we want to see your creations for a 'Happy Birthday' - it doesn't have to be a card... could be a gift.. a tag.. bag...cake...etc. as long as we can see that it follows a 'Birthday' theme!! 

We have some fab prizes to celebrate ... and you have until 8pm BST Wednesday 4th July 2012. We really hope lots of you can join in the fun and make it a big celebration!! 

This time I have made a Gift Bag using a gorgeous digi image from The Crafty Pad.. called 'Lulu with Cake'

I found a Template online and digitally filled it with Design Paper from Bearly Mine Designs. It's the first time I've made a Gift Bag and it's not perfect so don't look too closely at those edges!!! I had a template but no instructions!!! So I did make a few mistakes... but managed to unstick it and re-do it. 

I've used ribbon that I've had in my stash Forever!!!!!!!!!!!! for handles... LOL the colours don't go with very much but they were perfect to go with this paper...

On the reverse I've printed and coloured Happy birthday..

I've coloured Lulu with Promarkers and Flexmarkers...

It was nice to do something different and I might have another go.. you learn by your mistakes... so hopefully my next one will be even better!! :-))

The Crafty Pad is one of our Fab Sponsors for this Challenge!!!

and their generous Prize is 3 Digi Images of Winners Choice or 2 Digi images and a Paper Pack.

Please do pop on over to MAWTT for more details and to see all the other Fab Prizes that you could win!!! You can also check out my Teamies gorgeous creations this week - lots more inspiration for you!!

It's another blustery, showery day here in North West England .. so perfect for Crafting...!!  Off to play with some new stamps that have just arrived... I was lucky enough to win a Whiff of Joy Challenge a couple of weeks back and my prize was voucher for Simon Says Stamp. I chose some nice Christmas Stamps to do some more embossing!! :-)) The parcel came SO quickly from USA - it only took 6 days !!!! I am well impressed!! 
Hope you are all having a lovely day! Will catch up with you later!
Love and Hugs

Kathleen said...

Oh I am afraid it does have to be a card with me, I am useless at bags and boxes, no matter how simple people say they are I just make one hell of a mess.
This is great though, love the papers and the image but especially love the Happy Birthday stamp.

Susan Flynn said...

Hi Sue I think your bag is perfect and can't see any mistakes at all! You are clever making your own gift bag. I was going to make some little boxes to put my DIL's birthday present in (some Pandora charms) but just didn't have the time but this would have been ideal! I am now down in London and Harrison is fast asleep so just catching up xx

Sarah said...

Hi Sue, so sorry I've not been by for ages - a case of real life getting in the way!

Will be trying to get back to normal soon.

Hope you have a good weekend.
