Diamonds Challenge (Sweet Sassy Diva)

Hi!  Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway and I am super excited to Design today!  This week at Sweet Sassy Diva, the challenge is to use a Diamond in your project.  I made a gift bag for a very special little girl.  I have a new little baby girl who will be coming to my daycare in a couple of months.
Tanner and I are holding Baby Grayson ~ isn't she beautiful!  Her big sister loves Elephants and has a special lovey that is a pink elephant.  Mom picked out a Giraffe for Grayson so I decided to make a Giraffe gift bag to hold her gift from me.

I picked the Giraffe from Create A Critter and the coordinating Kite (aka diamond).  I put the layers of the giraffe on my mat sized at 3.24 inches.

Instead of using the top layer with the round spots on it, I copied a second middle layer and added hearts as my spots.  I did not weld, instead I grouped the hearts (George and Basic Shapes, variety of sizes) with the giraffe body so they hearts would cut out.

I added some grass from Paper Doll Dress Up sized to 1.73 inches.

I added a sun from Create A Critter and some clouds from April Showers.

I used yellow, pink, green and blue cardstock to cut out the pieces.

I used some ink, pop dots and stickles to add some dimension.

Here is my gift bag ready to stuff full of goodies!!  

Thanks for having me over today Bobbi Jo!!

Hello, my sweet sister-friend! Was stopping by to say hello, but was captivated by this simply adorable bag project -- soooo cute! And what a beautiful picture of you, Tanner, and the precious little one! Bet you can't wait to get your hands on that adorable one, huh? LOL!!!

Hugs, sweet Lori!

AW Lori, what a darling bag, love that you put hearts on the giraffe instead of the spots. Tanner is a handsome young man and Grayson is beautiful.

Awwww, Lori ... "your" new baby Grayson is adorable, and I LOVE your heart-dotted giraffe. SO sweet, as is the notion of giving your new charges a little gift from their Mom-away-from-Mom. Very trendy little name: Grayson. When I was preggers with my daughter 27 years ago, I was going to name the baby GRAYDON if it was a "he." That is what *I* wanted to name the boy, that is ... my hubby, not so much. He just wanted to give the boy an initial ... J. No name?? Boy, that's one more reason why I KNOW that man was worth leaving (now 20 years ago!). Crazy man, and I couldn't get my way. LOL.
