It's a wrap....

Typical Melbourne weather... !!!
We were blown away by the beautiful warmth sunny day to welcome Spring....
But unfortunately....it decided not to stay for long...
gale strong wind....and snowing expected over @ the Alps late this week...Sigh!!!
Enough about the weather...
 
LESSology turned ONE... yahoo.... and in conjunction with the ONE year Anniversary... our challenge for #18 ~ it's a wrap!!!... Isn't it perfect to celebrate with a wrap!!!!
Okay... Since I dare say, I’m a hoarder junkie now…
You know… those nice little boxes or nice paper bags, you received instead of throwing them …I kept them for “rainy day”…
Indeed it’s raining today… So I’ve got to use those eh... {{WINK}}
 
For 1st gift wrap idea…
I used a paper bag I’ve got when I went shopping @kaisercraft
 I like the size and the white-ness…
Perfect to turn it to a nice cutie gift bag…. [Good for kids]
 

And here is my 2nd gift wrap idea…
I’ve got this nice & neat box from a wedding I attended…
Since it’s nice and neat… I don’t need much to beautify it…
I used PP to create that faux ribbon… button and rosette...walla ...its done...
 
So now it’s your turn…. I’m so excited… I can’t wait to see what everyone creates….
 

I decided to throw an extra gift for the participants who played along with us @ LESSology Challenge #18 ~ its a wrap...
2 lawn fawn stamps ...
I will dice up the lucky winner using Random org at the end of the month....
so good luck... and please join in the FUN with US...
 The Prize is awesome!!!
Totally!!!
 
 

 
Thank you so much.. for all your love and sweet comments...
It means the world to me...hugs...xoxo

Gorgeous bag! Love all the border punches. I keep forgetting where you live, and had to do a double take when you mentioned spring. Of course, we are just getting into fall around here!

Oooh that must be pretty snow on the Alps!

It is so cool how you are welcoming spring as I am fall. Polar opposites! Your bag and gift box turned out so cute.

Whooo just ADOOORE that bag! and how utterly cute it is, it's a gift in itself! Aha, now I get the bow :)) love how you put in on an accordion bloom. These are both trul gorgeous but my fave has to be that darling bag, oh am in love with it! Somehow I though you live in the US but reading this post I realized you're not. Rainy days are splendid, have scrapping written all over them. We're heading into atumn in Sweden so lots of it coming up .... :)) xoxox
