This week's Your Creative Connection theme is TAG, YOU'RE IT!  This theme is the perfect opportunity to share the gifts that I created for my guests at the Hamilton Extravaganza last weekend.  Everyone at this fun, all-day crafting event loved receiving these cute goodie-bags, finished with a gift tag created with products from the Peony Garden Suite...

Yesterday we held the Hamilton Extravaganza and usually I share the projects we created after the event.  However, I am teaching the same project at the Tauranga Extravaganza this coming Saturday, so I don't want to spoil the surprise.  So, instead, I will share the kraft gift bags I created for each of my guests who attended the event on the weekend.  I took the humble brown paper bag and decorated it with products from the elegant Peony Garden Suite...
