A theme continued.......

Hey there friends....Abby here with a couple more pretties created with February's Natural Living Kit! This kit continues to stir up creations inspired by the look of handbags so today I'm sharing 3 different versions.......the first two featuring bits and pieces from the kit....while the third was created mostly with discontinued paper Lisa was kind enough to share with me.....

First up is a barrel style gift bag with handles made of pearls and gems....and the body created with the 7 gypsies Venice page, Basic Grey doilie and a brad from the kit along with a bit of satin ribbon from my stash....

....a view of the side reveals the barrel design with a rounded body and acordion folded ends.....
....the doilie continues on the inside of the bag for a finished look..... accompany this beauty I created a unique card by adding a bit more of the 7 gypsies page to a Tattered Angels chipboard I had in my stash.....

Next you'll discover a very chic "change purse" made its way to my imagination....all it took was the bingo card from the kit and some embellies from my own stash to create this cutie....

.....since I love to add unexpected touches I lined the inside with vintage lace for a true purse feel....wouldn't this be the perfect way to perhaps give a little "green" to a friend in need:)
.....lastly.....a gift bag inspired by an evening bag.....simple and sophisticated....with just a pop of color on the outside.....a touch of lace.....and a brad from the kit....
.....and for a bit of an edgy, funky feel the inside is lined with zebra pattern it!
.....the brad from the kit added the perfect touch to this lovely bag....
Well that's it for today all....hope you enjoyed your visit here today. Don't forget to pop back over next week when we'll share our monthly challenge....lot's of fun to be had!
