For a Valentine Girl's Birthday

Happy Birthday to my friend Carola!

Birthday Blog Hop - Day 4
at Catch The Bug

"With Love" is the lovely Bugaboo Stamps image I used for my project.  We continue to celebrate the birthday of Bugaboo Stamps.  Mini challenges continue through Jan.20.  Today's challenge:  use a birthday theme and "2" of something.  I chose 2 pearls for the bag.

My box/bag project affords me the opportunity to help introduce today's challenge at Craft Your Passion. The challenge: make a box or bag (not bought) and I get to use a Bugaboo image.  My bag is from Silhouette.  I added extra dimension by adding a complementary color to the handle area, adding ribbon, pearls and sizing to my liking.

Surely you want to head over to Catch The Bug and Craft Your Passion and be dazzled.
