~ Banana Frog Hop ~

Welcome if you have just arrived from Lory.

My project today is to keep track of those little bits and pieces that I need to use for documenting memories.  Currently I'm have several albums on-going and there are times where I get a souvenir from that particular day and need to keep in a safe place. The problem is sometimes, I keep it so safe that I fail to find it and this has annoyed me many times! Hence, I created this little bag to put these bits in one place and hopefully, ease the headache of searching for them when it is needed.

The bag is a recycled packaging. I merely painted it over and then decorated with patterned papers. The calendar was downloaded and printed out from Crafty Secrets site. The papers were from a digital collection by Carina Gardner. The swirls came from the Butterflies and Swirls set while the date is from De Louisville alphabet set.

The back was stamped using several Banana Frog sets: Butterflies and Swirls, Totally Tropical and Build A Daisy. 

Hopefully with this bag, I can now keep all my souvenirs in one place and when the time comes to scrap my page, I can easily find them. As for the theme on Winter season, nothing wintery here but since the new year falls in the Winter months, the new resolution was to be organised and hence, this bag!

Thanks for dropping by and if you fancy a Banana Frog stamp set, leave a comment. Winner will be announced on the Banana Frog blog! TTFN!
