It's all in the Bag

I wanted to make a bag to put catalogs in for my new downline...I had some canvas bags I bought in CA and decided I would stamp on one of them.  I used Brown Stazon, CTMH Alcohol Ink Markers, CTMH Pigment ink pads, Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel, the "Love This" stamp set (B1432) and the Alphabet stamp for this month's special.  I like how it turned out I hope Stephanie likes it too:)
