Midweek Magnolias - Anything but a card

Hi friends!
I'm really sorry I've been so absent of late, there really has been lots going on here to occupy my attentions.
The great new is that my eldest is in a new school now away from her previous troubles so we are really pleased about that and have now had a few of our stresses eased!
I'm still up to my eyes in producing goods for this craft fair at the end of the week, so once that is over I will be able to heave  sigh of relief too! If I was going to the craft fair s a card maker/ paper crafter it would be just fine as I have plenty of goods available to sell! But I am there as an edible goods seller, so I will show you some pictures soon of all the goodies I have been making to take with me!
Anyway, it's challenge time again at Midweek Magnolias. I missed the last challenge due to all the school stresses so my apologies and thanks to my fabulous teamies for being so supportive.
Our challenge this time is 
So I chose to make a little gift bag..
This is perfect for a small gift (I know just what is going in here) the bag is just 4 and 1/2 inches high. I have used freebie kaisercraft papers from a xmas issue of simple cards and papercraft last year. Along with some flowers from WOC, butterfly from Kays and wooden embellishment from my stash. My snowflake border is Tim holtz and my sentiment LOTV.
I adore this Tilda she can be used all year round but I like her for xmas! I have coloured her with prisma pencils of course.
Here is a side view of the bag. I have used similar papers to the back but kept the sides plain.
Do check out the stunning creations from the rest of the team this time and we would love to have you join us for a chance at an awesome prize from Magnolia!
Thanks for coming by my blog!
Big hugs

Sweetie this is absolutely gorgeous I love this gift bag. You should not worry about missing the last one hun, family always has to come first no matter what. So pleased you have managed get her into a new school. We ended up doing that with our eldest, he ended up hating school but when he moved although school still bored him lol he went to stay on at 6th form for 2 years. So it all worked out well in the end & I made sure my youngest never went that school & instead he went the same one as my eldest.

Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
