Prayers please

Eric broke his leg this weekend. He broke both his tibia and his fibula on his left leg right above the ankle. He was in surgery over 3 hours yesterday and in the recovery room for an additional 3 plus hours. He is in dire pain at the moment. All prayers are certainly appreciated.

"Papertrey august Blog Hop Challenge"

The Challenge:

In honor of school going back into session everywhere, we thought it would be fun to issue a Brown Bag Challenge. We want to see what you can do to dress up, alter, change and ordinary brown lunch bag into a paper crafting work of art. You could modify it to become a gift bag with handles, create a card base by folding it in half (complete with a slide out tag), add a window to it or whatever else you can dream up. After the hop is through, we should have plenty of inspiration to help us create amazing projects with inexpensive brown bags!

Here's my take on the challenge. I made a little Owlie hand puppet out of my brown paper bag. Tomorrow I'm going to pack my baby's school lunch in it. Then when he's done with lunch, he'll have something to play with!

Supply Equivalents:
PTI CS- Hawaiian shores, Ripe Avocado, Lemon Tart, Orange Zest, Dark Chocolate
1 3/4 circle punch (for whites of eyes and eyelids)
1 1/4 circle punch (for eyeballs)
PTI Large Scallop Die
I cut the wings and ears out by hand.
Thanks for looking!
