have your cake and eat it too

Hi there! My word, it is almost a month since I blogged. Somewhere along the way, I completely lost my crafting mojo, which kind of frightened me when I look at how much stash I have. I thought what on earth would I do with it all, if I never crafted again? Now there's a thought! Anyway, in the last few days I think I have recovered it, so panic over. Phew! But it's not nice when you lose your mojo!

Well, today we have a FOOD theme at Crafts 4 Eternity.

I decided to use this birthday cake paper that I've had in my stash for FOUR years! It is Heidi Grace ~ It's My Party.

I made a little bag in the middle using my Tim Holtz ~ In the Bag die. I love this die but hard to think of what to do with it other than uhmmm, make little bags!

I stuck it on the front and because it seemed strange to have an empty bag, I made a little book to put inside, with my left over scraps.

Excuse my colouring on this cute Tilda. I actually coloured her up a couple of years back to go with this very paper and then didn't do anything with it, fortunately I remembered her and decided to go with it. I would certainly colour her differently now, but I liked the bright colours of her.

I am entering this in at the following challenges:

Thank you for looking.
