LESSology Challenge ....



You know ... some things don't always go as planned ... When LESSology challenge blog started ... I so wanted to join in with everything ... but time got away from me each week ...
This week the challenge is to decorate a paper bag (white or brown) and of course every challenge at LESSology must include a recycled item too ...
 In the UK ... we don't get those cute brown bags that my USA friends make such wonderful albums from ... they seem to have so many uses and appear quite strong ... But as it happened I did have a little brown bag .. well, a big brown bag ... (I cut the top off )... and I had need of a gift bag for one of my sweet blog buddies ... so it was finally the perfect opportunity to join in the fun ...



I had so much fun doing this .... and my recycled item is of course the lovely corrugated edging


The little chipboard birdie I painted using TH Distress stains ... and the little key came home with me from Majorca ... I got a bunch of them in an art shop I found in Soller ... they're called "Lucky Keys" ... I hope this brings luck to my blog friend


Sorry I can't share what is inside this bag ... don't want to spoil the birthday surprise ...

But one surprise I can share is this ... 
A sweet little gift and card from my lovely friend Kirsty


Kirsty made me this gorgeous crochet apple holder and the beautiful card


Look at that cute little leaf ...
THANK YOU KIRSTY!!

Till soon
