Gift Box in a Bag

Diana Gibbs is a master at making these adorable Gift Boxes in a Bag. She made up a tutorial so that even people like me (who need three tries to make a Stationery Box) can make one. :)

I think I shoulda' left the Prima flower off the front of the bag, though. I covered up the cute little Penguin!!! Ugh!

Then I made a matching card with a sketch from Jen Del Muro's site:

Here's my card:

Imaginisce Surfer Penguin
Imaginisce, Cardstock from Die Cuts With A View & Georgia Pacific White
Versafine Onyx Black, Copic Markers, Close To My Heart Topiary

All I have to say is... Thank GOD it's Friday! I can't understand why this week has seemed so long... Maybe because it's been INTERCESSION? I dearly love my children... I really, really do...

According to Wikipedia, "intercession" means "prayer for the living" or "prayer for the departed." I'm not sure which I am right now. HA HA! Kidding! It also means "prayer for the Saints" which I'd like to think all of the teachers up at the Middle School are for putting up with all of those students on a daily basis are! LOL! But, "intercession" also means "break between sessions." So, take your pick.

So, friends, that wraps up the lesson for today! :) I hope you're having a fabulous Aloha Friday and have great plans for the weekend!

Thanks for visiting!
