October Calendar Girls Challenge

Our hostess for this months Calendar Girls Challenge was Barb.  And her challenge was this:

For me a true challenge is to try a new technique. So--that is going to be the challenge I propose to all of us.

Go to this link Technique Lovers Challenge Forum and chose a new technique to you that has a 1 or 0 in the challenge number--like TLC410 or TLC360 or any more current number.  The technique you pick should be one you have never tried before--and you can go back as far as you want in the forum in the posted techniques to find one to tackle. Please list the number and name of the technique you tried in your blog post. And--to make the challenge a bit harder--you cannot create a card this month! You need to think outside of the box and try a totally new technique along with a project that is anything but a card............... And--for extra credit--make a creation with a Halloween theme!

So I went to the Technique Lovers Challenge Forum and found this technique I had never tried before, created something that was NOT a card and my creation even has a Halloween theme.  And here it is...a Double Pocket Bag!  TLC169.

The sentiment and witch hat is from Whippersnappers.  Ribbon from SU!  Designer paper and buttons from either Michaels or Joann.  Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar for the blogs of all the Calendar Girls and check out their creations.
