Something a bit different!

Morning all!

It's the weekend (thank goodness) and I am really looking forward to tonight. I am going to a michelin starred restaurant with my family for my brothers 30th birthday. It called the 'Box Tree' in Ilkley. I've been on the website and it looks very posh, considering I'm used to Nando's! Ha!

It was also my sister in law's birthday this week and so today I am going to show you the gift wrapping and gift tag that I made for her. I so enjoyed doing this, something that little bit different from creating cards, but yet still being creative! So what do you think of my efforts?!

The other side of the gift tag...

I love the endless possibilities you have with a roll of plain brown paper wrapping.


CS: SU Very Vanilla, Rich Razzleberry, Kraft CS from my stash

Paper: Brown wrapping paper (from ikea or the post office)

Image: SU Set 'True Friend', SU Hostess set 'Itty Bitty Buds' Bth retired

Sentiment: SU retired sale a bration set

Tools: Circle nesties, Cropodile. Ink and SU markers in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive

Misc: Twine from stash

I know that I have used a lot of retired SU products to create this wrapping, but I am trying to stick to my new years resolution of using up my old stash. Whilst there is a slim to none chance of be able to use it all up as there are mountains of it, I thought I could give it a good go!!

Well I'd best dash, got cleaning and shopping to do before my night out tonight.
Thanks for stoping by!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
