Gift Bag - Pina Colada

Now I told you yesterday that I hadn't tried Mai Tai's and that is totally true, and today I am posting the Pina Colada bag and I can tell you I have had a few of those in my day....maybe more than a few. I do like them but find them a little sweet for my taste but they are still good from time to time.

Supplies Used:
Mixed Drinks Digital Cart
Cricut Craftroom Program
Various Cardstock
Sheer Ribbon
Stampin Up Marker
Various Gel pens
Giftbag from Michaels

The gift tag is the same as on the other bags but I wanted to give you a close up shot of how it looked when I used ribbon instead of the twine. The ribbon is some scrap I had laying around from something *okie doesn't remember if it's from another project or from a gift she might have gotten* and it matched the bag well so I decided to use it. 

Here is a close up shot of the drink. I did a little extra doodling on the pineapple because it was screaming for it *okie wonders if other people's paper screams at them 'PLEASE ADD DOODLING' like hers does and decides it probably does*.

I am really loving the Mixed Drink Cartridge and plan on using it some more!!

Here is a close up shot where you can see the details a little better. Notice the chunky glitter on the drink, it is that dazzle diamond glitter or something like that - I'm too lazy to get up and go find the jar right now to see the name of it. I did get it at Hobby Lobby, that much I do remember. I ran the drink cut upside through my Xyron and then applied the glitter. I used that EK Success Powder Tool I talked about the other day over the cut to get rid of any stray stickiness.

Oh the pineapple ring has mounting foam on the back to add some dimension, as does the umbrella.

I guess I better get busy on some new projects...I have about a hundred ideas running through my head at all times and it's hard to pick just one. And right now I might have problems with finding motivation but I will keep you updated on that.
