Ruby Rock It Prize WinnerKirsty Vittetoe! Congratulations, Kirsty! Please shoot me an email with your mailing address to! **


Hello, hello friends, and happy Friday! Today is an especially happy day in our neck of the woods, as it’s an early release day for us. School is out at noon, and I get to spend the whole, long, lazy afternoon with my little Miss. I’m hoping to surprise her with lunch out, just the two of us. I love being able to get a jump start on the weekend like that.

Today I wanted to share one last guest designer project for Ruby Rock It. Just a quick and easy gift wrap belly-band I put together to dress up a kraft gift bag, made from a strip of patterned paper and a fussy cut journaling card and label. V-notches cut into the ends of some scraps of burlap paper create instant banners to tuck under the journaling card. I think the whole thing looks like a prize ribbon, don’t you?

There you have it! A few fun Country Cookin’ projects. I hope you enjoyed! And if you haven’t had a chance yet, be sure to leave a comment on this post to get entered in my prize drawing. Ruby Rock It has generously donated an entire set of their beautiful Essence East Coast collection for me to give to one of you (sorry, not including the album). I’ll close the drawing tonight at midnight and will announce the winner here on my blog tomorrow.

LOVE your little bag and totally love that ‘belly band’ what a great expression! SUITS! Ooooh what a prize!!! Another total LOVE!
