Jackson's Digital Expressions - Challenge #14

Hello Everyone!  Today at Jacksons digital expressions our Anything goes challenge is with the Alternate art team.  This means that the twist is to transform something.  And the transformation should be school related.  We are being sponsored by the wonderful Wonderful artist

I really love her designs!!!!  I've played with a few as you will have seen on my blog for those who have been following me for awhile.
As you guys know... I'm not usually really fond of transforming objects... really good with cards, scrapbook pages... but to put a digi on something else is a stretch for me.  But since I wanted to play along I thought and thought and thought some more and finally came out with this. 

I started out with a brown paper gift bag bought 2/1$ at the dollar store:

And created this with it:

I used some papers that I had in my pile of scraps (the one with the balloons).  I added some buttons and put some ribbon through them.  The buttons come from Walmart.  And colored the wonderful digi called Bibi Balloons with my copics.  She was sooooo much fun to color up!  Here's a closer look:
Now for those of you that have read the entire post... you will be wondering how this has anything to do with school... well since I have 4 kids the start of the school year means that they will be invited to b-day parties and I will have to wrap up the gift ;)  So now all that's required is that I make a card to go with the bag... didn't have time for this post since I was leaving for vacation but I'll make one for sure!  And I'll blog about it to you guys.

So see?!?  It really wasn't that hard to make something other than a card... and I know you guys are way more talented than me for this!  So what are you waiting for?!?  Please join me up at Jacksons digital expressions.
