Christmas Altered Paper Bag


Gooooood morning! I've been busy plugging away at some cards lately. Scratch that...I have been busy coloring images!!  I have LOADS and I do mean loads of images colored up but not on cards.  Here is the problem....I'm hooked on something. Yup, I am hooked on Vampire Diaries. You can stream the first and second season on Netflix. I have watched almost 26 episodes in the last 2 weeks. (not including when I was away over the long weekend). Now anybody that knows me knows that I am not a big TV person. I rarely watch it. One evening while I was coloring it was a bit quiet and boring for me in my craft room so I thought hey...I can watch some netflix while I color.  Where my computer is there isn't enough room to make cards, plus I don't want to move all my supplies....but it's quite easy for me to grab my basket of copics and color while I watch. So thats exactly what I have been doing.  needless to say...I have ALOT of images done just waiting to be placed onto a card.  I still have about 18 episodes to go though!!

Anybody else watch Vampire Diaries? My son thinks it's ridiculous. Everytime he walks by he says something sarcastic like...since when did Vampires become the good guys? What happened to the mean, scary...i'm going to bite you vampires. Why in the world are girls soooooo obsessed with Vampires now..it's just not right.  I can see my friend Lisette laughing at this right now..because she knows my son...and knows how he is! LOL He is my 11 going on 40 son. He is not mean, or rude..he just has a grown personality and he is extremely sarcastic. Hrmm..not sure where he gets that from!!!!!  Anyways, he will just have to get over me lusting over Damon or Stefan....or Edward and Jacob!!!

Enough about that...This morning I have a decorated paper bag for you! I have used "Something for You" Tilda. I think she is so cute! She is also fun to color! I made a matching ornament to go inside for a little gift. I will take pictures of that later!






Aren't those papers beautiful??? They are from Authentique and I LOVE them!  I wish I had more...but my LSS sold out of them when she had a class with Stacy Dewid of Tattered Angels. I do still have 1 6x6 pad of it left that I am hoarding. I don't want to use it...but I know that is silly. I am going to have to use it at some point. It will be sad to see it go though.

I printed out the sentiment on my computer. Tilda is colored with Copics. I used the R20's with R89 for the deep shadows in her dress.  E40's on her hair and C's for the boots and fur. All the mattes are cut out with spellbinders. The border punch is from Martha Stewart.

Oohhhh and Dont forget about my BLOG CANDY!!!!!!!!!!!

I love the bag and guess what.... I am a Vampire Diaries lady.... I love love love Damon or however he spells it. Although I am one who loves vampires. I also watch the secret circle (it's a little stupid) But I have my Bones back. Other then that Dora, Bubble Guppies, and spongebob stays on the tv when it is on.

Tracy,
This is bag-tastic!! My gosh, how you evolved the basic lunch bag into a lavish Hollywood tote! Gorgeous combinations of DPs and the embellishments lack for nothing. Truly gorgeous and your image is outstanding.
Speaking of this, I'm truly impressed at how well you can multitask!
I'm useless when Netflix is on. :)
