Simply Sunday Challenge and Hiding In My Craft Room Challenge

Good Afternoon!! Happy Birthday to me!! Today I turn 27! I celebrated my birthday yesterday by going to Chuck E Cheese. I know not exactly a grown up thing to do, but I have a 3 year old and it is my only full weekend with her so I figured I would take her some where to have some fun!! She loved it and I took lots of pictures!! Anyways it has been a busy week and it was suppose to be my week to be part of the Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky with K Andrew. However I didn't get a chance to be in my craft room all week and yesterday I was out of town. I finally got in my craft room for about 20 minutes this morning before church. My birthday present to myself!!

What I Used:
K Andrews Designs Art Stamps : Food For Thought
Martha Stewart Ribbon
Martha Stewart Punch: Doily Lace
Button From Dollar Store
Brad From Dollar Store
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Big Scalloped Circles large
Cuttlebug Die (for handles)
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Seeing Spots
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black

Food For Thought Buy HERE

This idea came from another blog The Little Blue Room the post is from 2009 but when I saw it I knew I wanted to make one. It was so easy to make, like I said I was only in my craft room for 20 minutes!!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Getting Cricky With K Andrew : Simply Sunday: Easter Blessings

Hiding In My Craft Room : Hideous Paper

Here is a look at the paper (both sides)

Second picture is what the inside of the bag looks like. The paper is from Costco and I don't know who made it but sorry all the double sided paper does not coordinate at all. I seemed to have turned this paper into a cute little Easter Treat Bag!!

Please head on over to Getting Cricky With K Andrew to see what the other fabulous Design team members made and join in on the challenge!! Can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Also head over to Hiding in My Craft Room to see what she made using her "Hideous" paper and join in on the fun!!

Have A Great Day!! (I know I will Cheese cake Yummm!!)

God Bless!!

  13. Chuck E Cheese is the place to be ;) I went there for my last birthday (the big 3-Oh) it was my son's first day of school that day too so we had one big celebration! Best way to celebrate your birthday is by celebrating one of the best things you have ever done... have children! ;)I love your Easter creation. The paper you used for this little bag. To cute!

    Happy belated birthday to you!! I'm so glad you had such a fun day!
    I've bought two large paper packs from Costco. One is fabulous and the papers do coordinate. The other... yuck! The papers are horrible and I've hardly used them at all. I'm glad you were able to make something so wonderful with yours!

  15. Very cute bag Kristan! Great job!
