I have just four challenges left now in the Birthday Scrap-a-Thon at Scrap Our Stash, and four days left to do them. This page is for Challenge 13, to use a mini bag on a page. I imagined the bag being layered up with a small photo and picked one of my cousin's son. However, first I had to make myself a mini bag as I don't have any; I used vellum for my bag, but then wanted to fill it with something. I don't have a story to journal as this was just a snapshot that my cousin sent me, but the date of the photo was close to Mark's fifth birthday so I made a collage of number 5 stickers for the bag. Then I layered the photo and bag with an assortment of papers, ran my title up the side and finally used some old baseball stickers that I had lurking in a drawer.

Paper - Basic Grey Max & Whiskers, Simple Stories Take a Hike, plus Scraps from Basic Grey
Letters - American Crafts Thickers
Numbers - Basic Grey, October Afternoon, Lily Bee, Fancy Pants
Baseball Stickers - Paper Cellar?
Vellum - Anita's
Ink - Ranger
