Live and Love Crafts - New Maja Papers

OH how I loooove playing with new papers and even while I'm sitting here typing this I want to run back into my craft room and start playing again!!  I didn't realize how many pretties I added to this until I actually did up my "ingredient" list below.  LOL!

As you can see I decorated up a paper bag and started with pink Maja papers and then layered with some jute fabric.  The pretty image is from Pion Design's "Grandma's Attic/Tinted - Bouquet".  I also used a tag from the new papers and added a Tim Holtz clip and Gesso.


The "Timeless" piece is from one of the edges of the paper so I thought I'd add that to my Wild Orchid and Kort & Godt bouquet. 


The butterfly is from some older Pion papers and I'll edit this later when I find out what they are.  Those are so super handy and match a lot of different papers.  I added the Magnolia Doohickey Swirl dies and initially didn't set out to have it look like an extended butterfly but thought it looked pretty neat so left it!!  LOL!  And of course, everything is covered with Gesso.   


Did you get a chance to enter Sandy's "Think Pink" giveaway?  I wish I could enter!!  LOL! 

As always I wish you a happy and creative weekend!!

Hugs,
