Baked with Love

I love vintage images, but just don't get a chance to play with them as often as I like.  Here is one from TLC, Create as well as the sentiment.  I distressed the edges of it as well as the paper.  I also ink distressed the sentiment.  I found some lace in my stash that I forgot that I had, but I don't even know where I got it.  It reminds me of my Grandmother.

Birthday dog gift bag

Today is day 3 of the Bugaboo 8th Birthday Bash and today the challenge is to make something that is not a card that you would use for a birthday party.  If you follow me, you know about Gus, my daughter's Teddy Bear pup, which will have a birthday coming up so this is a gift bag for him.  He is sooooo spoiled. When I went to pick up some items to give him for Christmas, the lady at the store, asked me how many dogs I had, hehehe...only one very spoiled grandpup with a wardrobe larger than some men I know, no lie.
For my bag, I used one of the images from the Birthday Puppies Set.  I didn't add additional items on the bag because I was afraid Gus would chew them off.
