Cutie Pie Challenge No 11 - Come on over and have a go

Good morning Cutie Pies and my lovely followers, its
 Craftybird Lisa here with the brand new challenge over at The Cutie Pies. 

  This time it's something a little different and we hope that you will join in the fun with the Cutie Pie DT!  My first time of leading a challenge and I'm looking forward to picking the winner too!  This challenge is ideal for those of you who like altering things, scrapbooking, making boxes, bags, knitting, beading and more!  We have two fantastic sponsors, my Winning choice will win a prize from 'STAMP & CREATE' 
In addition we have another generous Digital Sponsorship from the wonderful Prairie Fairy!  A firm favourite with the DT, you will see some of the images used in their Work.
So don't be shy, lets see them here, as long as it's not a card you can enter this one!  The DT have had fun with this one, I hope you like their ideas and makes as much as I do!

So come on over to The Cutie Pies challenge site and join in the fun.

For this challenge I made a memory book out of paper bags.  I used Tim Holtz papers and black card from my stash.  The ribbons were from Stampin-up.  The tags and the fantastic car on the front were cut using my cricut.  All pages were edged with TH distress inks.

I hope you like it and it has inspired you to make something a little different.  I loved doing this one and my baby brother (32) thinks it's great and is going to start filling it with photos and momentos to record his move into his new house.

Paper Sundaes:  Clean and Simple
The Hybrid Chick - Ribbon
Allsorts Challenge - Free and Easy
Catch the Bug Blogspot - Anything goes
Little Claire Designs:  Anything but a card
Creations by Gillm:  Challenge 2 colour inspiration
