April Showers for Paper Sweeties

It's April Sneak Peek time at Paper Sweeties!   As soon as I opened my April package I knew I wanted to use the polka dot flower from the Make Today Beautiful stamp set on a bag.  As you know, I really like to make treat bags. Then I saw that cute rain outfit for the Sweeties and it all fell together!

I started with the bag (printing onto copy paper and pinking the edges), stamping the flower and leaf all over and coloring with copics.  Then comes the Sweetie!   That's Emma sporting her new paper pieced rain gear from the Here Comes Spring stamp set.  She's attached to the paper straw only by her head - that way she can slip over the top of the bag while the straw is inside.  

The rainbow, cloud and sentiment (Roses and Rainbows stamp set) finish out the straw.  What's inside the bag?

Darling mushrooms (also brought by April showers) and pretty flowers - all for a crafty friend of mine.  See some other April projects at the Paper Sweeties Blog - enjoy!
