Basket Full of Cuteness

Hello there!
It is Tuesday and time for Ten Things... at 
This week the design team was challenged to create projects using BAGS!
For my project I mounted my photo on a 4.25"x 5.5" Kraft Bag, inserted a tag and a cardstock sticker journaling card inside of the bag.  I also folded down the the top half of a smaller kraft bag and placed over the edge of the top of my page, inserted a tag and created an embellishment cluster using a deccorative brad, twine and a layered sticker.   
This layout was also inspired by the following challenges:
"All About Our Guys Challenge" at Scrap Our Stash 
"Use Your Dies" Challenge at Scrap it Girl   
(Triangles & Tags cut with my Cricut)
"Anything Goes" ~ Sketches4All
The design of my layout was inspired by the May 23 sketch below from Elle's Studio:
Check out the Practical Scrappers blog and see how the design team came up with various ways to use bags.
