{doggone it!! - it's new challenge time at TPV!}

{the challenge}
The challenge at The Paper Variety this week is to create a paper project that reflects a "get well" theme.

I went with altering a gift bag. I've had these fabric dogs by Prima in my stash for a while...and when I got them out, I immediately thought "doggone it!!" ...thinking wouldn't it be cute to send to someone who had hurt themselves, wasn't feeling well, etc.? {I really love how this bag turned out!} :)

I first applied a Hambly white wood grain rub-on directly to the kraft bag. It went on smooth & tight. Next I added a piece of CC pp for the dog house roof. A piece of black bazzill cs, outlined w/jute made the door. The Prima dog was applied with pop dots and a black Cherry Arte rub-on was added to the bottom of the house. The title is AC Thickers letters - which I always add a bit of glue to, just to make sure they do not come loose. (Apply with a cotton swab and then it is less messy.) The tiny tag is by Maya Road. Inked sentiment is Inkadinkado, misc. buttons, and a bit of Offray ribbon finishes this gift bag. :) I can't help it. This bag makes me smile. :)

The prize this week is BEAUTIFUL!!! It is a "Sophia Kit", from Dana Swadling, of Close to My Heart. Look at the paper!! The stamp set! The buttons!! The trim!! :) :)


Can't wait to see what you create for our challenge this week!

Please link up to TPV by noon next Tuesday, March 15, for a chance to win Dana's beautiful prize!!!

Thanks for coming by my blog, and I hope everyone is feeling well! :)

hugs, patti
