...to me! And you!
Yep, it's the start of my birthday month (the fun day is the 18th) - I do like to celebrate a *lot*! And I treat myself a *lot* during this month - and I like to treat others too.
For ages now I've been on the lookout for a bag in which to carry my much loved Big Shot, and as much as I'd love one of the doctors-style bags from Sizzix they are a bit out of my budget when it comes to our exhange rate.
But today I found just what I needed - and I'm such a HAPPY almost-birthday girl! It was marked as an Overnight Bag, and it looked just perfect, sitting there happily smiling at passersby. So in I went and ooh'd and ahh'd and made the decision. I did enlist the help of two unsuspecting ladies in the shop, when I asked them for their choice in colour of bag... There was this one...
...or a brown and cream striped bag. The other ladies and I agreed that practically the darker bag was a better choice - it could hide scuff marks and dirt more easily than this pink & blue candy striped bag, but then we also all agreed that the pink was more appropriate... So Pink it is!
Here's the bag with the Big Shot nestled happily inside...
Where the feet do fit quite easily into the base of the bag, the handle of the Big Shot always presents a problem - so I tried it sideays and it's perfect! There is ample place inside the bag to add my multi-purpose platform and cutting mats.
A side view of my new "BSB" (Big Shot Bag)...
And another of the front zipper pouch - which seems capable of holding several dies and embossing folders!
And, because I love sharing my birthday, I'm going straight back to the shop tomorrow and get one of the brown and cream striped bags, to give away as BLOG CANDY to followers and email subscribers of my blog!
I'll be doing a few more blog candy draws so watch this space! (Draws will take place at the end of July.)
