Ava was here last week. During the day she was at horse back riding camp. After camp, one day we picked berries, another day we visited Rehoboth and Browseabout Book Store. One day we did crafts (of course!). One morning she cooked us breakfast. Everything is so much fun with Ava. I know that one day, she won’t want to spend a week with Auntie Di, time with friends and other activities will take precedence. I’ll understand, but I’ll be sad.

I made a little gift bag for her room, filled with a bit of candy. Since she loves every animal that walks the earth,  I had to add an animal. I used one of the kittens from Pretty Kitty stamp set to add a special touch to her gift bag.

Design Notes for Pretty Kitty Gift Bag:

Do you love how the kitty is sitting up on the bag? I fussy cut the kitty and then put him on a tag I punched with the Circle Tab Punch.

The bag itself is made with the Gift Bag Punch Board and some Elegant Eggplant card stock since purple is Ava’s favorite color. It looks so nice with the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. I punched out three daisies from the same Designer Series Paper and added a Gold Faceted Gem in the middle. Finally, I added a little Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon to mimic leaves.
