Nautical Paper bag

My girlfriend Tammi had her 50 birthday this year. She loves the nautical themed Magnolia images, so i used the images i had and made her a paper bag.

Before you keep looking at the pictures i need to tell you, that at the time i made the paper bag i wasn't thinking i would ever post on my blog again, i really thought i was over it. Therefore i just quickly snapped some photos with my old cell phone before posting it and didnt care about the quality. 

Anyhow.... i changed my mind and that's why i post today :-) 
the start :-) i didnt color for 1 year at the time and totally forgot what kind of ink to use when watercoloring DUHHH!!! i used memento at first:-) giggle

One of the gifts tucked inside a small bag was cute Beach Tilda - the one where she is holding a sand bucket

 Bed Bath and Beyond Gift card simply because it was the only card they had that was blue and went with the theme. I ALWAYS find some stuff i "need" at this store :-)

all supplies can be found at Sir Stampalot! I no longer design for Janice but the store is just fantastic that's why i mention it. You will be very pleased with the customer service you will receive there! Which frankly isnt everywhere the same. I ordered the other day at some store located inside the USA the Magnolia DooHickey Vol 7 issue and the shop packaged so poorly that some of my dies came bend! I didn't say anything, but i know i will not order there again.
