all hallows eve

Hello! Oh my word, the weeks are whizzing by and already here I am at my 3rd week as Guest Designer for Cupcake Craft Challenges and so enjoying my time here. This week the challenge is BUTTONS & BOWS.

Now please bear with me on the photos, we may be enjoying a beautiful, beautiful October, the best since records began BUT it does not make it easy to photograph!

Once again, I could not resist decorating one of these cute little paperbags, this time a kraft bag and making a mini notebook to pop inside. And ... guess what? ... it is nearly Halloween.

Once again I've used papers from the Pink Paislee ~ Twilight collection.

For the bag, I created a little tag with Tilda with Thistle. As usual, I coloured her with copics and added some stickles.

I created a little notebook to go inside the bag, with more buttons and bows.

I must admit, I am absolutely rubbish at tying bows. I never could tie a shoe lace properly, so what you see here are glorified knots.

Here are the backs.
I am including this at the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
