PPPR "Anything Goes" Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Anything Goes" blog hop!!  You should have arrived at my blog after visiting the lovely Nanne.  If you missed the beginning of the hop, you will want to head to Lisa's blog.

 There are two special freebie files available for free only today and tomorrow (after that it can be purchased in the PPPR store).  The link to the freebie is on Lisa's blog.

Today's blog hop theme is  "Anything Goes" and the design team will be showcasing projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' files.   Here is what I created for the hop -

I created a gift bag!!  Okay, I really didn't create the gift bag BUT I did decorate it!!  I picked up a stack of plain but colorful gift bags awhile bag with the idea in mind that it would be fun to hand decorate them.  Here is a closeup of my decorated gift bag -

To create my decorated gift bag I used the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Santa Birdie" cutting file and enlarged it to fit the front of my gift bag.  My sentiment comes from Craftin Desert Divas.

This was a fun project and I am hoping to get more done before the holidays :-)
