Little Gabby Stroll - Baby Gift Bag

Hiya crafty friends, what a turn in the weather eh?!...cold, wet and very windy! Just let's hope it passes over quickly and that the good weather comes back!!! Today it's my turn to share a touch of inspiration for Digi Doodle Studios. For my DT creation, I have used Little Gabby Stroll, isn't she so adorable?! She is part of the 'Bundles of Joy' Baby collection. I created this little gift bag.

On that note, I've been bursting to say... this might come in handy in November as we are expecting our first Grandchild!!! Will now need to make one in blue too, just incase as don't know whether Girl or Boy but sooo overjoyed and thrilled to say the least!!!!
