Rainy Day Challenge at TKJ

Hello, my sweet and crafty blog-loving friends!  Happy Monday, and welcome back for another SUPER fun challenge this week at The Kraft Journal.  It's a Rainy Day Challenge this week at The Kraft Journal, and the forecast says that skies will be sunny and bright if YOU are able to stop by to join us this week.  You could be our next Featured Artist, or the lucky winner of the monthly $15 gift certificate to the Kraft Outlet.
Not that I'm really a big fan of rainy weather, but I sure had a lot of fun with this week's "Rain" Challenge over at The Kraft Journal.  So, I created a little photo holder/card holder using a Large Kraft Polka Dot Merchandise Bag that I decorated using some FUN Kraft Outlet embellishments.  First, I ran a length of Twill Ruler Ribbon across the bag, and then I used a Small Glassine Bag to create a tag/gift card holder.
Inside the Small Glassine Bag, you can see my Grungy Prim Shipping Tag peeking through with a sweet little bow made from soft and lovely Yellow Baker's Twine.  To create the photo mat (tucked inside the Large Kraft Polka Dot Merchandise Bag), I used a large piece of Buff Ivory Cardstock and made a pull tab at the top using another length of Yellow Baker's Twine and Twill Ruler Ribbon. It all came together quite nicely!

Hopefully, you will dodge the raindrops or any bad weather, grab some new goodies from the Kraft Outlet, and hurry on over to play along with us in this week's "Rain Challenge" at The Kraft Journal.  It's such a fun theme - I hope you'll play along!

I'm sharing this little project in the following challenges:

Eileen Hull - Art With Heart Challenge - April Showers

Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday Linky Challenge

Emergency Crafters Challenge - Polka Dots - I just LOVE the sweet polka dots on this kraft bag, and thought it was a perfect fit for this challenge.  It's always a blessing to find challenges that fit my projects!

Paper Sweeties Blog - Challenge #18 - I've been trying so hard to put away all bitterness and my (sometimes) bad attitude, and just enjoy crafting with products I love.  I don't know how well this fits the theme for this month, but nonetheless, I'm entering it into the April Challenge.

Blessings to you,
