 For My Project, I decided to fancy up an already adorable Treat Bag.
(sorry for the horrible picture...Spring still hasn't arrived in Ohio)

The bag is from Whisker Graphics.  The alphas were in my stash (so old, I don't remember where I even got them).  The Owl Stamp is by Inkadinkado.  I colored it with my Whisper Strokes Markers.  The small Purple Flowers are a miniature version of the fantastic Layered Garden Beauties at the Pinque Peacock Shop.  You will for sure want to stop over and check out all of the Fabulous Spring Flowers that were just released!

Next you will head over to Teresa's Blog.

Here's the complete line up just in case you get lost along the way.

For my project today, I used the Sushi Bar stamp set by TAWS and Daffodil Crinkle Ribbon by 3 Girl JAM.

I started with Kraft Card stock for my base.   I stamped the cute bowl on several papers from the MME-On The Bright Side 6x6 stack and BasicGrey-Fact 6x6 stack.    All ink used were different shades of TH Distress Ink.  The chipboard lantern came with a bonus package that arrived with a crafty magazine a while ago.

Your next stop is..................... Arielle~

Here is the entire Lineup

Thanks for hopping with TAWS and 3GJ.
We look forward to seeing all your projects!
