Happy Thursday!

Hello friends! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday! 

Before I begin, I would like to say that I'm sorry if I haven't been around much. Life has been pretty busy! So busy with work and also Ive been working hard going to the gym, that I have lost some of my creative mojo. Also, I was hoping for the Craft Fairy to come by my craft room to clear my mess. LOL But I finally got it all done and placed all the items in its rightful place. I know I have only been posting projects that have been for my design teams. But my goal is to try to slowly merge back into things and post at least every other day or twice a week. I thank all my followers for sticking around during my absence. I plan on setting a day where I will be in my craft room working on projects so that I can have them set to post. I really do miss crafting so if you guys are patient with me, you will start seeing some things on here. I also want to say sorry if I haven't been around your blogs lately but no fear, I will slowly start stopping by to leave awesome comments. Okay, enough of my rambling, let's get to the project I have made over at Getting Cricky and here on my blog. 

I am excited to share a fun project I have made today which is also posted on Getting Cricky! My good friend's little girl is celebrating her first birthday at the end of the month and the theme of her party will be Minnie Mouse Party! How exciting is that! For one, I am a big Disney fan, so I knew just what to make her. I created this adorable gift bag. But, I believe this can either be a Gift Bag or even a Treat Bag for the little ones.

For this bag, I measured a piece of white card stock at 5-1/4 x 8-1/4 and attached it to the bag. Then, I punched two holes onto the top of the bag to pass through black and red polka dot ribbon. I tied it into a bow. Then, I had a die cut of a Mickey Head Balloon and used pop dots to make it rise onto the bag. I then added black and red twine to make it turn into a balloon. Then, I tied different pieces of ribbon to the handle of the bag. For this gift bag, the perfect K. Andrews Stamp Set I used was the Of Mice & Lil Men. Especially, if you are a Disney Fan and love to make those Disney Cards, Scrapbook Layouts, or Disney Favors, this is the perfect stamp set to use. In the center of the balloon, I stamped the sentiment that reads "Mouse a -rrific."
