I finished something!

So nice to finally have something I can share with you! I have a lot of projects that I am working on but they are all in the “ing” department and now one has moved to the “ed” department!

Here it is!

I used this tutorial for using freezer paper as a stencil and went from there. I was in a rush and I used my heat embossing gun to dry the paint quickly and it worked awesome, I had this baby done in no time at all!!!!

Inside the bag is a little paper covered composition notebook and crayons. I had intended to include a little mini chalk board, chalk and eraser. Had them all done and then decided to have DH drill holes in it to add some ribbon…… should have left well enough alone! The drill split through the back, didn’t help that the bit wasn’t working well and so he pushed harder gurrrrrr. Oh well live and lean, but I had a lot of time in painting that thing today! My daughter was glad to inherit it even if it isn’t the cutest.

Here’s a peek at something I hope to finish Monday. Tomorrow we  are headed to a birthday party (that’s where the bag comes in) and then to the zoo with extended family. It will be a nice fun day and HOT!

Now that I see the one on the left on here it is pretty just the way it is, but I hope to make it even prettier with spray paint. This is a first for me but I’ve been watching all of you out there!
