Paper Sack Love

Thank you for joining me and the entire Design Team of Mountain Plains Crafters in celebrating National Scrapbooking Day !!  Our theme is "Creating with Paper Bags".. How fun is that !! Our amazing sponsor is Lawn Fawn and the prize is a stamp set chosen by you.. Be sure to go to our MPC Facebook page and "like" us if you haven't already, then check out Lawn Fawn on Facebook , "like" them and let them know that the MPC Team sent you.. This is not required to win but everybody needs a little lovin',,,,,

We will have trivia questions on our MPC Facebook page all weekend. Answer one or all of these questions ( please only one time per question ). Each answer earns you an entry. A winner will be announced on Monday. The contest ends Sunday, May 3 at midnight EST. And this contest is open to INTERNATIONAL entries !!

I wanted to start journaling so I used my small paper lunch sacks as backgrounds on my pages , I embossed them , used Distress paints, added stamped images, and adhered them with washi. The paper sacks are fairly thin so they did not add too much thickness to my pages. These are my base pages. I will be adding favorite quotes, thoughts on my life and creative observations..I hope you like them..
