it's a Swag Baggalicious Sunday at Paper Issues!

hey hey!  what's shakin', chickens?

it's Swag Bag Sunday at Paper Issues, and i have a page to share using some happy little bits and pieces, mostly from the May Swag Bag but with a few others thrown in for good measure.  i swear, when i think i'm getting close to using up the whole bag, the stuff MULTIPLIES in there!

here's my page:

the pink burlap is from my stash, and i had some extra enamel dots to match the ones that came in my Swag Bag, and the alphas are Doodlebug and some older Thickers...  and for those of you who bought those Pixie Sticks from Doodlebug but didn't have a clue what to do with them, trust me, you're not alone!  i HAD to grab them and this is the very first time i've used them on anything.  :)

i used the silver foil sentiment stickers from the 7 Paper "Baxter" line from Studio Calico...  i don't have a dog, but i love the term "Fetch" to describe something nifty.

the little punched vellum is from THIS gorgeous paper from Doodlebug.  i am hording it, and stretching it, and only using it sparingly.  one little hexie was enough for this page.
