"Think you can't change the world? Too late, you already have. It was changed for the better the minute you were born. There are more people than you can imagine who will never be the same because they came in contact with you, if only for a fleeting moment."

My guest DT contribution for the Fairy Fun Fridays challenge blog this week! :)


Yiiippeeeee!!! :))) I won 3 free Prairie Fairy digital images and a guest designer spot for the week 16 challenge over at the Fairy Fun Fridays challenge blog with this decorated basket, last week! :) So much fun!

 (And in May I'm in this DT with Roberta and the other talented ladies, for a 4 month period!)  :)

Here's my guest designer contribution for the Fairy Fun Fridays week 16 challenge, with the theme distressing. (Which means you can sand, crumple and tear your card/project). You don't have to use Prairie Fairy stamps on your card/project, to enter the challenges!

This is a decorated gift bag, for a confirmand. I SO fell for this cute fairy, holding a bird!.. I'm a little sorry I cut off the mushroom he was sitting on... But, I just HAD to place him on this rose!... *lol*

This digi stamp carries the name "A little friend". I have coloured the image with my Pro Markers and added Stickles "Diamond" to the fairy's wings. :) The DP and the largest flower in the left corner, are from Prima. The smaller flowers (plumeria) and the lace, are from a Norwegian producer with the name 'Kort og Godt'.
The sentiment stamp - translated: "Dear confirmand", is from Papir i Hjertet and their "Heartfelt Design" product line. The cute little metal bird up in the right corner, is bought at kuttut.com.

Here are some more photos - back, too - and close-ups, front and back:

(Click photos to enlarge).

I sanded the edges and the handles on the paper bag with a sanding block. I distressed the edges of the papers with my nail - after they were glued on the bag. I added Stickles to the yellow roses, too. Click photos for a closer look!..



The back, with another sentiment stamp from Papir i Hjertet and their "Heartfelt Design" products. (Wise and heartwarming words for a confirmand on this stamp).
Butterflies made with a Martha Stewart punch. 



Size of the bag: 19,5 x 17,5 cm. 


Now, here's how the paper bag looked, before I "laid my hands on it". *lol*... :


It's a paper bag from my trip to Italy last summer. I stopped by "Galleria Vittorio Emanuel II" in Milano. 
Some shopping was inevitable!... ;) ....


I even found the receipt inside the bag! *LOL* Guess what was bought in this shop!....

....perfume, yes!... 


Well, I wish you all a perfect weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by! Take care!
Hugs, Hege :)
