Sweet and Sour bag made using the Summer Bag Topper cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Here is the bag I wanted to post last week, but I am in the midst of a crazy summer and was unable to do so. I will hopefully have some more time soon so I can get back on the crafting/blogging wagon!

Today's project is made using the Bag Topper - Summer cartridge. This cartridge is so much fun and I keep wanting to throw a party just so I have a good excuse to use them. How sad is that?

Here is the CCR file:  https://www.box.com/s/b118904097af8fd268a7

I got the bag from Walmart. Super cheap!! These photos are not the best. The clouds hung out over my house most of the day. I will try to get some better ones up today.
The embellishment is from Close To My Heart. It's retired now though :-(

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Your lemon bag topper is so cute but what really makes it so sophisticated is the black ribbon. What a great touch.
Thank you for sharing! :)

I just got the CTMH cricut philosophy cartridge and I can't wait to try it. The stamp set was just too cute and I am now ready to make some new card sets. I really like the teapot set and I have saved 10 tea cans to decorate and make friendship tea for inside the cans. The cute tea card would be the best to go with them. I am going to have to look for cute paper as well. I think the ideas I get from you are just the beast. Thanks, Cheryl Goessling scrapmom2
