Scraptastic Monday's Challenge #1

 It's a start of our 1st Challenge over at Cindy's Scraptastic Designs.  Now this Challenge will be a weekly challenge every Monday.

But before I begin I would like Thank you All for your Sweet Comments.  Now to announce the winner of my giveaway from Cindy's Scraptastic Blog Hop

Amy, Please contact me with your address so that I can mail the twine out to you.

Now on to...........
Our first Challenge is to decorated a Bag or Box, that must include a tag, stitching and a button (with a Thanksgiving Theme to it)

Now you know we would love for you to use one of Cindy's Digi but if you dont' have one YET, you can still join in the challenge by using your cricut or any other digi you have or you can actually purchase one of her Digi's Here.

Here is what I made:
Bag I used is from Michaels
DP is from K and Co
Image I used is from Cindy's Digi's called Horn of Plenty and Happy Thanksgiving
The flourish on the side is just from my stash
Crinkled Ribbon is from Patsy of Prairie Bird Boutique
Border Stamp is from SU!
I also added some faux stitching on my border
Twine is from The Twinery
Buttons is from Sew Sweet Autumn Collection

Here are a few close ups:

Now head on over to Cindy's Scraptastic Designs to see what other creations the DT has come up with.

This project is also being entered over at The Scrapbooking Queens Royal Digi Challenge #2the theme is Fall and Thanksgiving.  So create a card/project using a digi with this theme.
