Repurposed Bag

Well, my blog title says it all...scrap your bags! If you are anything like me, you have a ton (and I do mean a ton!) of paper shopping bags hanging around in your closet just waiting to be used. I keep meaning to repurpose them and reuse them, since I am not one to throw anything away, but have yet to actually follow through and alas, my closet is full of paper shoppers. So, when I saw the Just Us Girls challenge this week, I was finally inspired to do something with at least one of the hundred or so bags taking up space in my closet, leaving me room for, well, probably one more bag that I will more than likely aquire somewhere along the way this week!
The inspiration was a great color combo, especially for fall.

I also found a few more challenges that this qualified for. The Chocolate, Coffee and Cards challenge was anything goes (love that!). The Pile It On challenge was use warm or cool colors.

All paper is CTMH and the background as well as the emblem are from the CTMH exclusive CricutArtbooking cartridge. "Happy Birthday" is from Gypsy Wanderings. The bow was actually taken off of something somewhere along the way, again, never throw anything away, especially a beautifully tied bow! TFL!
