Decorated Bag & Teacher gift

I am sharing a bag I decorated for our little guy's preschool teacher.
She has been just so sweet and loving towards our little guy as well as others and it is kinda sad to see him move on from "Miss Julie".  This is a little end-of-the-year gift for her. 
Inside the bag is an insulated cup with her first initial, lip gloss with SPF, sunscreen, a pack of tissues and some small drink flavor packs all to wish her a happy summer!

I inked up the front of the bag with Linen first to see how the ink would do and then added the other colors.  It "stuck" to the fold on the front, but I covered that part with my handmade grass.  This also added some texture to the front.   
I stamped the Lawn Fawn images on different Basic Grey papers and cut them out.  I added some Stickles and Liquid Pearls here and there for some fun. 

I thought the bag would be more reusable with "thank you" on the
front vs. a happy summer theme. 

What's inside:

I am entering this project into the following Challenges:
Wee Memories #57:  "Stamp It" sponsored by Market Street Stamps
Basic Grey Challenge #44: Mix and Match (see supply list)

Papers:  All Basic Grey!  (Olivia, Oliver and Cupcake)
Inks:  Distress in Linen, Broken China, Weathered Wood, Peeled paint and Memento Black
Other:  MM wire, craft bag, Stickles, Liquid Pearls, Glossy Accents (on pink flowers), Prismacolor Pencils

I was going to make a matching card, but I think I'll let Matthew (age 4) make one. 
I'll post his if there's time to photograph it!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
