Treat Bags, a photo album and a blog award

I showed this label the other day but I wanted to show you the bags that they are going with. I decided to make treat bags for our Road Trip this weekend. Kip is laughing at me and calling me a nerd for doing all this. That's okay, call him that a lot too! Since we are celebrating my birthday this weekend, I thought it would be a cute idea to make these goodies bags to pass out to everyone. There are snacks that we can eat in the car, puzzle books, paper and pens and the item below (more about that in a minute).  I got the plain gift bags at Hobby Lobby and punched out circles out of matching paper and then glued them onto the bag so that the bags would match my background on my tags. 

The tag is just tied onto the bag and designed to be added to the cover of the scrapbook that is also in the bags. I made these 6x6 books with a Bind-It-All. I cut a slightly larger tag than the one that I cut with the Sizzix die cut and that is already attached to the book cover and then after our trip we can take them off the bags and then attach them to the book cover. The letter are cut out using the Sizzix alphabet Girls are Weird. 
In case you haven't read about my trip yet, me, my Mom, my Mother-in-Law and sister-in-law are going to Nashville, Indiana next weekend. I found a Copic class that is Sunday and since my birthday is Saturday, I planned a road trip and then invited people to go with me! Fortunately, they were free to go that weekend too. The tag is made with Passport Hanna from Hanna Stamps and colored with Copic markers, the paper is Making Memories, card stock is DCWV.

I have been so lucky to have met so great people through blogging. One of them Sue, gave me this good Karma award. The meaning behind this award is "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers." I am supposed to pass this along to 7 other bloggers.
Please go and visit these ladies when you have a chance!
