Friday Free for All!

Today is Friday and that means another Friday Free for All Challenge over at Embellish-It Scrapbooking!

This week Debbie challenged us to make a box in a bag from Stampin' With Di's tutorial here!! I must say Di has soooo many cool tutorials and a fabulous site!!

This one was so fast and easy to make!

I have seen these Box in a bags lately on other sites and LOVED them but had never tackled one before but I took the plunge this week. I have been away and haven't done any Friday challenges for forever!! so it is about time I jumped back in before I get fired!! LOL! (nervous laughter....)

I used some of my Basic Grey Oh Baby Boy 12 x 12 paper for this challenge, and the letters that are included with the pack. I usually don't use those letters, but they fit right in with the theme and they fit on the tag, which is also included!!

I coloured over the letters to make them sparkle a bit with my Martha Stewart glitter markers - be warned!! - they are juicy and runny - but they leave a beautiful effect. I only mean that I don't think I would ever use them for finer work.

I added some orange bling to the tag - because Jake is only going to be 2 and he won't care that there are jewels on them yet!!

We would love to see your Box in a Bag!! Just upload to the Embellish-It Scrapbooking gallery and be sure to use the keyword FC9!! (Friday Challenge 9)
