The Artful bag challenge

We all have a vice, maybe even two or three. I have to admit that one of mine is bags, closely followed by shoes and then maybe chocolate.

So when Anna posted about her new challenge for the new year The  Artful Bag Challenge. I quickly signed up.

This month challenge is  Playing With Paper. This month we are crafting our bags and purses from paper. Any paper you like can be used: scrapbook paper, book and magazine pages, card stock, etc. Embellish it however you like.

This is my bag I call it my "sweet heart bag" it is made from double sided scrap booking paper so the inside is as pretty as the outside.  Thank you Anna for hosting such a cute and fun challenge and pop over to see the other bags at

And happy new year to all!

Definitely shoes followed by bags and then my downfall has to be turkish delight!
Couldn't resist this challenge as it has to be a cheap way of indulging myself especially if I make the rule of only using what is available to hand or in my stash. Thankyou for your comment on my bag. I love pink so your bag is a hit with me. Also the stitching and the corner embelishments.There is a lovely vintage feel to it. Can't wait for next month to see what you come up with.
