Altered Gift Bag To Wish Good Luck

My dear friend, Abby posted a wonderful altered gift bag this past week, and it inspired me to alter my own bag for my son's student teacher that has finished up her time with the kids and is leaving them this week.  I filled it with some little goodies that any aspiring teacher would love, and my son was so excited to give it to her. 

I had alot of fun altering this bag and really have to thank Abby for the idea.  I am sure that I will be doing this again sometime.

Thanks for taking a peek at this today, and I will be back soon to show you what else I have been up to ; )
Have a wonderful evening!!

Hugs and Blessings,

I am so glad I have found your blog! Your work is gorgeous! I found you by CherCroppin at MMSC. I have to ask if your "follower photo" is of Wormsloe Plantation? I've been to Wormsloe and this reminds me of the beautiful drive leading into the plantation.
