Scraptastic Mondays

Welcome to our very first challenge at Scraptastic Monday's.
The challenge today is to make a
Thanksgiving themed bag or box and it must include a tag, stitching, and button.
We would love for you to use one of Cindy's digis but if you don't have any yet that is fine to. You are also welcome to use your Cricut or another digi. We want everyone to be able to play along with us. :)

This year for Thanksgiving I think I am going to make little activity bags for my kids so they will have something fun to do while the the grown ups are busy cooking.
Here is the one I made for my oldest.

For my project I cut my bag and tag from the Cricut "Plantin Schoolbook" cartridge. The Orange cardstock and polka dot ribbon are "Dusty Durango" from Stampin' Up. My kraft cardstock was embossed with Cuttlebugs "Polka dot" folder and my fabulous image is from Cindy's store HERE and is called "Happy Thanksgiving" To finish my project off I wrote in my son's name and added faux stitching with my gel pens. To see what the other fabulous DT members have created please go to Scraptasic Mondays.
Can't wait to see what you create for the challenge!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. :)
