Bauble gift bag

Hello lovely people,

Even though I am on my career break, I wouldn't dream of missing the annual work Christmas lunch at Pizza Hut which is happening today!
We always have the all-you-can-eat buffet so how many slices of pizza do you reckon I can eat?!
And how much exercise will I need to do to work it all off?!

While I'm off stuffing my face, it's Creative Inspirations challenge time and this week we have the theme...


I have made a gift bag, which is designed to match a handmade present...but you'll have to wait until next week to see that!

As usual I couldn't resist the gorgeous Christmas papers from Maja Design; there are some lovely reds in the collection too but I have used just the brown and blue ones here.

The bauble die was a freebie with a card magazine and the border was a little something that fell in my basket a few months ago but hadn't yet been used!
