Totally gorjuss dt

Hi blog hoppers, the week is running away from me, and this week over on our challenge blog for Totally gorjuss the girls are complaining of the same thing, time just passing us by.  This week we have an awesome challenge happening for you to make a "gift bag", how cool is that?

I found this awesome origami bag HERE, with a great tutorial, so easy to follow and decided that this bag would be the idea.

I am using another one of my fairly new Magnolia images for this challenge, Princess Tilda, she is just so pretty with her formal wear on.  Unfortunately you cant actually see the glitz too well, but she is just too darling.  I also foundt his great roll of wallpaper and thought great its also big enough to make a sizable gift bag with instead of one of those dinky ones.  I also didnt want to cover it all so i have kept the embellishments to a bare minimum, so just a bit of lace and a few pearls and then the lush ribbon over the handle with a rose centre.

Hope you will pop over to our challenge blog and come play with us this week.
