FFF DT 'project'- Decorate a bag!

It's that time of week again. A Fariy Fun Friday!
But before I get to my project I'd just like to tell you all that I am the proud 'step-mother/foster mother/land mother' of  about 20 little guppies.
I woke up one morning to see a momma fish in our tank on her death bed. Literally, she was floating head down, butt up at the top of the fishtank. I thought something awful was gonna happen, so I took her out & under an hour later POOF she popped out her little babies.
 Usually when a fish has babies, they have a TON of them and only a few survive......well we got about 20 ! YAY! They are happily swimming around in their own little fishtank until they are big enough to survive the swirling action of the big bad grown up fish tank pump!

Now, onto our show.....................lol. At Fairy Fun Fridays (aka: FFF) this week our mission was to decorate bags. I struggled. I agonized. I watched as other members fulfilled this mission without difficulty.....I downloaded a bag template & was all set to make my own bag when I remembered all the gift bags I had upstairs!
Off I went, & before I knew it, I had a half dozen bags in my hand! I had to narrow it down & could not do just one without it's mate for this set of Giraffes. Meet Lil Gina & Gerry Giraffe, a creation of the Prairie Fairy's which can be purchased at her store here!



When I got down to it, it was actually REALLY fun to do this challenge this week.
As you can see I got inspired to do a father's day bag.....(pttpf...he'll be lucky if this gets filled with anything for father's day since we already got our father's day/mother's day present last month)
Hope to see you at FFF this week............PS- bring your bags!

Fun with all those guppies - I remember we had a fish tank when I was a little girl. I just loved watching all the life in water behind glass.
