Happy Birthday Jase


Feel like I'm on this computer waaaayyyy too much! But yet haven't been blogging much, nor visiting blogs eitheer! Anyway - yesterday was Jases birthday - check out the vase (about 50-60cm high) filled with vahlrona chocolate mousse & other yummy bits (the chef @ Waitiri made it for him). Check out Alicia's chocolate grin.


I put together these bags after checking one out in Scrapbook Creations - but made it mine with a few changes. Really like how these came out & hope to teach a few people on Saturday & our 12 hour Wakatipu Scrap 'n' Chat how to make them - have put together a couple of kits for making them. Loved scrunching up the patterned papers (the original instructions used fabric) - though was hesitant at the start! Playing with beads was heaps of fun too. The inside boasts a series of pockets made out of envelopes - kind of like a concertina folder. Love how the same design looks so different just by using different patterned papers!

Yummo chocolate and cute pic! Lara those bags are so cool, I love them. I love how the scrunched paper actually does resemble a fabric texture. Did the mag come with a template or did you make it up because I'm sure to have that mag do you know what issue? Whatever the answer you did a fabulous job, well done :)

I agree with Lisa those bags are just gorgeous I was thinking of doing something like that for Arwens 3rd birthday invites the problem is most of her friends are boys.
Hope the class goes well.

Love your bags Lara. Isn't it special that every one is unique simply because of the paper combinations - gorgeous!
