Monkey Birthday BAG!!!

Okay I am officially obsessed with Create A Critter!!! I made a fun monkey card for a two-year-old's birthday party and was so happy with the results (as seen in my first post today!) I was itching to use the cart some more, not necessarily with the monkey again, but I knew I wanted to use it.

We went and picked up some wonderful books for the birthday boy and than we made our rounds of the three large craft stores in town (I wish I could get everything I need at one, but I have found that they do not all carry everything I want so I often visit all three every week.). At Michael's I saw the plain gift bags staring at me when I walked in and I knew what I had to do!!

Monkeys and Vines from Create A Critter, Happy Birthday is from Birthday Bash
I think I love this bag more than I love the card!!  I am so entering it in the Circle Blog Weekly Challenge (animals!!). This is the first time I have ever done this with bags before, but I have a feeling I am 100% hooked. I have to say I took a picture of it before I put the gift together and that did not do it justice.  The different shades of green tissue just make it even better (also bought at Michael's!!)  Hope you enjoy it!!
