Lavender Bag


It's Play Date Cafe challenge time and I have to admit to a slight cheat here. I'd already had a box pre made up, ready and waiting. I just needed the colour scheme so that I could choose the appropriate papers to decorate it.


This week we had a lovely blend of red, lavender and silver. Normally I struggle with metallics in a scheme but by adding a heart charm (from a recent Xmas Cracker) and eyelets, I managed to leap that hurdle easily enough.


And given that it's a lavender theme, I may fill it with some of that very same named floral herb to send as a fragrant gift.

I must admit, I actually laughed 'aloud' when I saw your entry 'Yay I'm first'! Thank you for that early morning smile....

Love this little bag and the I think the colors worked really well with it. I love when we have just the right trinket to add as an embellishment. Great, great job!

The colours work brilliantly on this bag; and there's always a use for cracker gifts ;)

You really are away with those boxes. Must check out what the book was called as I love them and know someone who I could buy this book for.

Well done on using the colours for PDC.
