Happy Thursday!

I hope you all had an amazing Valentine's Day. I created this gift bag for my little guy, Cooper. It was the night before Cooper's Valentine's Day party at school and he looks at me, before heading off to bed, and says, "Mom, I need a bag or box to hold my Valentine's Day goodies from my friends." Well, what is a mom to do? Easy. Time to hit the craft room! Good thing too, because this week's  Just A Scrappin' challenge is to create a gift bag for a special person in your life. I think my little guy is pretty special.

I started with a standard kraft bag and Cricut's Mini Monster cartridge. I just adore the little monster with the googly eyes. I then added a few die cut banners, twine and glitter hearts. I loved the finished product and so did Cooper.

Please don't forget to stop by the Just A Scrappin' blog to view the other design team members' project.
