Well done to all those Marathon Runners!!!

 I feel incredibly privalaged to live 5 minutes walk from  the midway point of The London Marathon. Each year we watch thousands of runners representing a range of charities and each year I still feel so overwhelmed. I would love to do it one day for a couple of charities close to my heart. I may start training now and do it by 2020. This year I saw the front runners live I have never seen them live before so that was really great.
I want to share this bag I  have made for my eldest daughter she saw me making the one I showed you on here and wanted one. I used the stamp I  will be releasing tomorrow at Gr8 Crafts 4 U called Pirate Lil Lily.
I printed it onto A4 paper and scaled it to fill the paper. I coloured in with some alcohol pens and then I photocopied it onto t-shirt transfer paper and then ironed onto the bag. I loved doing this as it meant that I could add shading to the image and it shows in the transfer. I made a matching bag charm with chain, beads and a charm.

I hope that you all have a great rest of weekend and I am entering this project into the following challenges:
Less is more - How Charming!

Thanks for stopping by today I really appreciate your time and comments. I hope you are inspired too. Hugs Pascale

Lovin' these bags - you're kind of making me feel guilty about the transfer paper that's been sitting in my stash forever and a day :/

Several of the guys that I work with were running today (a couple of them also ran the Brighton one last weekend). They keep nagging me to train with them, but tbh I think my days of maintaining that level of fitness are well and truly gone!!!

Enjoy the rest of your sunday.
