Sending Hedgehugs Gift Bag

It's so strange the way a family dynamic can change, when one of your children go away to college.  We went from a family of four, to a family of 3.  Plus with Jess being a pilot in the Navy, sometimes it's just a family of two, me and Jacob.
We had a really good weekend.  On Friday, we went & played laser tag, then went to this place that serves hot dogs outside of a bar.  I know that sounds crazy, but these hotdogs are super good.  All beef, cheese, relish, onions and a little bit of mustard & catchup.  Delicious!
Then yesterday, we took a drive to St. Augustine, went to a few galleries, a few antique shops, a used bookstore, a great stationery & stamp store...what else?  Oh we got fresh fudge & ice cream from this candy shop, and we had Starbucks.  It was really hot & sticky but nice.  The piece de resistance for my son, was that we got him a Key Blade (like from Kingdom Hearts).

So now it is Sunday, and I typically would be making sure clothes were clean, & all homework is complete.  I still do that, but with only have one child at home, its easier to manage.  With that comes a lot of extra time for me.  Sometimes that is good, because I have more time to get things done.  But, like today when I am feeling a little run down & sick.  I really miss my daughter, a lot!  Before when she was home, she would make me tea or just sit and talk with me...about meaningless things that mean so much.

I have a few busy months ahead of me, so while I had some extra time today.  I made this cute little treat bag.  I really didn't think I would be able to make anything today because around noon our power went out (car accident knocked out a transformer).  It was 90 degrees and there was no way I was going to stay in our house with no air conditioning lol.


So cute right?
I found these cute kraft bags, at the stationery store yesterday, so all I need to do was decorate it.  I used the Fancy Pants Designs True Friend 6x6 paper pad, along with the Ephemera Pack.  How cute is that Hedgehog?!?  I love it!!



I have a super cute Lawn Fawn stamp set called Hedgehugs, that coordinated perfectly!!

I just happened to add this fun creation to a bag, but this would be great to use as a tag on a bag or gift as well.

Fancy Pants Designs True Friend 6x6 paper pad

Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs stamp set
Lawn Fawn dies

Such an adorable embellished bag! LOVE that hedgie and all the glorious colors.

I totally agree with college and family dynamics. My girl is in her 2nd year of college and in an apartment...my boy is a senior this year and when he leaves me to go to college, well, that's not going to be pretty :)
