Altered Gift Bag & Card

I haven't ever altered a bag before! Can you believe it? Well, I had this white bag and needed a gift bag for a wedding. I figured this was my chance. I don't know what the colors of the wedding are but I figured red, white and black are classic, right? ;-)
The black and white polk-a-dot is Prima packaging. I layered the flowers and added a button and rhinestone. I needed a card too and figured I might as well make it to match.

A couple weeks ago Chris took his vacation week. We had planned to pull our trailer to Idaho and Washington and camp. Our transmission went out as he pulled the trailer to our house. :( (we keep the trailer at my parents house as we can't park it at ours due to the CC&R's). But, better then than in Idaho or Washington or in the middle of no-where! We decided to go visit Chris's brother in Idaho anyways and just took the car.
Sadly, I only got a few pictures. Poor Peyton got car sick, so we stopped in every little town we could trying to find him some medicine. Finally, after 5 or 6 stops we found some. That and a new dinosaur made him feel much better! Above is a cute little coffee shop! It wasn't open, but made for a cute backdrop!
This picture of Maddy cracks me up! She did fantastic on the way up, not so well on the way back. Lets just say 7 hours in the car was a bit much for the kiddos. We had a lot of fun visiting with Chris's brother and fiance though!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful extended holiday weekend!

What? You've never altered a bag before??? Well, this one is beautiful. They colors are classic and so pretty. I love the flowers you used!!

My daughter gets car sick, too and it's no fun. We always make sure to have pretzels in the car, that helps her stomach. Have a great weekend, Kayla!
