Tu-Tu Sweet...

I spent much of yesterday with my little sweetie, Leighton. She went to the movies with us to see Marley and Me, and slept most of the time. Then, we went back to my sister's house for supper. My brother and his family were here from North Carolina. Of course, her Granny snuggled with her most of the time we were there. Yes, I'm a baby hog. I admit it...and I have no plans of changing! I made this little Valentine treat bag with Leighton in mind. She is my little "future ballerina". Her mother (Stella) has danced since she was two years old and now owns her own dance studio. So, of course, Leighton will dance...she danced in utero for 8 months...she can't stop now!


Stamps: "Happy Heart Day" (SU!), Ballerina from House Mouse, XOXOXO stamp (Studio G clear stamp), "Tu-tu Sweet" was hand-lettered

Cardstock: Riding Hood Red (2 pieces cut at 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" for front and back of bag), Chocolate Chip (4-1/4" x 1" to go across the front of the bag), Whisper White (Stampin' Up!) for main image, matted with Chocolate Chip and Riding Hood Red

Designer Paper: Riding Hood Red Prints from SU! (4-1/4" x 2-3/4")

Ink: Black Staz-On, Riding Hood Red

Other supplies: brown brad, Key Tag Punch (SU!), Kraft bag cut at 4", Ticket Corner Punch, Prismacolors, Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain ribbon from SU!, bag filler made from thinly cut strips of Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, and Riding Hood Red, Word Window Punch, Corner Rounder Punch

See...I told you she was a ballerina!
