Images and Trims

Hi Bloggerettes!  Thanks for stopping by.  I want to show you these cute tote bags that I created using images and trim.  I found the white canvas tote bags in a package of three at Walmart. I added the images from Graphiquesepia's etsy shop  and some trims and viola!

I got this image from Confessions of a Plate Addict.  She created the most darling pillow with beautiful piping and a link to where she got the sheep image.  She also had the image on her post.
I just love it.  It's not as pretty as hers but cute anyway.

Of course I had to move it around to see where it looks best.
It's going to my booth for someone else to love.

Be sure and check out all the goodness going on over there.
