A little Yummy for your tummy - Try it out Tuesday

This weeks Try it out Tuesday is to make anything but a card. I decided to make a gift bag - I love these, but it's been such a long time since I actually made one. I saw this gift bag tutorial the very first time by the very sweet and talented Angie Juda. It's such an easy gift bag to make, but so useful.
I coloured up Young Cathrine with friends and filled it up with
M&Ms (my youngest sister Cathrine is my inspiration to this image and she loves M&Ms). I first planned to fill it with Easter chocolate eggs, but they are not yet available in the shops so M&Ms it had to be :-)
DP, sentiment and ribbon from SU. Young Cathrine available at
Susana's - of course - . I also added Bella Baubles for a little bling. Nesties are a must - and I hope you have not missed that Susana has them in her store?
As usual - if you want to play along - then upload your project on PCP or SCS - using the keyword "TIOT6". Please check out the rest of the DTs projects on Susana's store blog.

I hope you'll like it (and don't tell Cathrine that I almost had all the M&Ms myself. It's hard to be creative on an empty stomach...hihi.....)

Oh you are a naughty girl Anki... I just can't believe you ate the M&M's. LOL Between you or my son, I don't know who is worse. I just told my son he should have to replace the M&M's I had in the candy dish, because they mysteriously disappeared.(and it wasn't me)..
VERY CUTE bag, and I'm sure your sister will absolutely love it. Providing you keep those M&M's in there! LOL
