Brown Baggin' It...w/ Flair!...

Hey guys!

Thanks again for coming back for my Friends with Flair post today!  I am really excited about today's post because I did something totally out of my comfort zone and it felt GOOD!


This is my submission from last week's UNITY BACHELOR contest.  I am so excited about it, because I was among some AMAZING talent this week!  The challenge was to use a regular, everyday household item on your project.   I was totally stumped, but on Sunday night at about 11PM last week as I was preparing my kids' lunches for school the next day this idea came to me to use a Brown Paper lunch Bag!

I ADORE the October Kit of the Month from UNITY!  I was so excited when Angela first previewed it on the 1st of this month it seemed like FOREVAH til the 15th when they shipped!   I LOVE the variety of stamps in this kit and the quotes...Ohhhhhhh the quotes.  You guys all know they're my fave!

Here's a pic of Madelynn, my 9 yr old DD's lunch on Monday w/ the card and of course I HAD to stamp the bag too, hee hee.


Thank you SO much for sticking with me today on this TOTALLY non-traditional Friday for me!  First a preggo bunny....now stamping on Lunch bags?? Have I LOST it???   LOL!  I don't know, but I SURE had fun with these projects!

Thanks so much for hanging with me today and I'll be back with my C4C post tomorrow!
