Altered Paper Bag - London Tilda




Good morning all,  It's been a miserable couple of days here in Scotland, rainy, windy and chilly!!!  so what better opportunity to sit cosy in my craft room and colour up this amazing new Little London stamp collection.  I've used the Vintage Phone Booth and Sweet London Tilda.  I'm loving them to bits.

The whole collection and the Mini collection are available now  from Diana over at  MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS STORE

Diana also has a very special deal on the Mini collection. 

MINI Little London Collection Bundle - Click Image to Close


I decided to alter a brown paper bag to hold some gifts for someone special.  All my ingredients are listed below with links to where you can purchase them where possible.



This huge chunky post card chocolate bar is going inside the bag along with a few other goodies for one of my family's upcoming Birthday. Not sure if you can make out the writing but it says 

Par Avon - Paris
Miss Shop A Hokic
101 Must Have Close
Shoeminster. 

I'm sure she will enjoy it.





Challenges Entered:


Dutch Magnolia Lovers Challenge:  Congratulations is the theme. My bag is for a Birthday. 
Storyteller Challenge:  This is the 1st challenge and Anything Goes.
Cute Card Thursday Challenge:  Signs of Distress 
Moving along with the Times Challenge:  Anything Goes.
Baffies Creative Shop Challenge:  Around the World - Tilda is in London.
Scrapper's Delights Challenge:  Make your own embellishments. I've made my rolled roses and all my wee stamps are made from the same paper and my scallop scissors. 


Items Used:  with links where possible.

Fabulous Suzi!! I adore all of it and I have that paper pad, I bought it back after my last trip "home" and this is the first time I've seen it used and you used it wonderfully!
