Peachy Keen Challenge - Gift Bags!

If you're looking for my Day 5 My Craft Spot Release Party post, click HERE or just scroll down.

Hello! This week the challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps is to decorate a gift bag! Since that is something I have never tackled before - it was a great challenge for me! Here is what I came up with:
I grabbed some plain kraft paper gift bags from Michaels that came in a pack, so I will probably be trying to do these more - because this one was so much fun!!! Here are the sets I used on this bag:

All my papers are from October Afternoon's new Cakewalk line - LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I wanted so badly to hoard them, but I am trying to break that habit, so since these came the day I brought home the gift bag - I forced myself to use them. I'm so glad I did! LOVE them...and if I use them up too quickly, I can always get more (hee hee hee!)
I paper-pieced the cute girl from the July kit, and stamped the banner several times on different pattern paper, then fussy cut them out. 
Used some of the miscellaneous stickers and flower sack die cuts from the line to decorate the banner up a bit, and added some Twinery Baker's Twine along the top of it. 
Used one of the banners to stamp the sentiment from the little add on kit, then glued it to a toothpick to make a little flag! My Copic coloring on the hair got a little wonky...but I'm still learning! 
Tucked a doily in the bottom corner, and added a couple of October afternoon buttons, and tied them with some jute twine from Ribbon Carousel. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure and head on over to the Peachy Keen blog to join in on the challenge, and see who last weeks Top Peach was!!!
