My Lovely Friends,

It's in the bag!

Well it will be when I've bought it lol,
I've made this bag for Kay's Christmas present to go in, she adores purple colours
and loves Christmas so hope she likes it, lol

As you can see I've made it in a shaker style, I have scored my acetate again to make mock diamonds on the acetate  for a little added interest, don't think they are showing to clearly on my piccies though lol,
the snow is pin flair Ice Diamond and I've put lots in so you can see it he he, it makes a gorgeous sound when it's moving too,
the Image is of course by  Magnolia and is Tilda with snow heart, love this one too, she's coloured with copics,
my papers are again by Magnolia and my card stock edges have been distressed with my distress tool and then painted with white acrylic paint,
Tim Holtz snow flurries border is down one side of the bag and has been distressed with vintage photo distress ink, has as my inner paper,
I've distressed a quick cutz key die with more white paint and used a charm for decoration too,

My  spellbinders nestie scalloped edge die cut shape has been done the same way, her snow dots and heart are made using liquid applique, the roses are edged with the white acrlic paint too,
if you look closely you can just make out the diamond pattern on the acetate which I did with my scor-pal,
the back of the bag has a large sentiment stamp I've had for years, stamped onto a larger scalloped edge nestie which has again been distressed with the white paint,
the same type of  roses and a Tim Holtz Alterations Pine Tree die cut have been distressed the same way too,
the little stars add a hint of shine on the tree,
the card stock and papers are again done the same way and I've attached the Tim Holtz snow flake flurries die on the opposite side too,
Another viewing of the front lol,
