scraptastic mondays challenge #!

Happy Monday!! and welcome.  how exciting today is our first challenge over at scraptastic mondays. im so honored that cindy asked me to be on her team with the rest of this fabulous design team she has picked. cindy has created all the digi's for us to use. they are the cutest! with our challenges you dont have to use her digis but of course we'd love for you to  plus once you see them show cased i think youre gonna want to :)
so onto my first project which is making a gift bag or box with a thanksgiving theme.also it must include stitching, a tag and a button.

the digi i used is called turkey lurkey ( the name is as cute as the digi eh :)  ) 

heres TL i paper pieced him  with an inked up doily behind him and my button i added hemp twine and then  some paper wrapphia behind it. the acorns

for my tag i just used a circle punch and added my chicken scratch ;) i also faux stitched using my fabulous newish signo uniball pen. the best pen out there i swear! the leaf  is a cuttlebug die cut i used the cutest boys evuhs ( tim holtz) distress inks and stickles on it. 

                            for the box i used my cricut and spring holiday cards cartridge. i hand drew the acorns and the pumkins are just cut from prepatterned paper. 

well i sure hope youve enjoyed your visit be sure to check out the rest of the dts awesome work too and play along with us :) hope your able to get your craft on today! hugs shelly
