Thank you Gift Bag

Here we are, again, with another fun and exciting challenge at Shelly's Images. Our theme is, "C'mon Let's Get Happy." This one is an easy one, and wide open for interpretation.  This is your chance to get creative and show us what makes you happy!

Our featurd images, today, is Carousel. It's available, today only, for a special price, in the Shelly's Images Store.  Hurry and pick it up, while it's on sale, before it's too late!

Come over and play along with us, and show us what makes YOU, happy! You can link up with us at Shelly's Images, for your chance to win! While you're there, check out the wonderful "Happy" creations from the rest of the design team.

But, before you leave, I have some "Happy" inspiration for you, today, to get you motivated.  How about this gift bag for inspiration?!

This bright, fun, gift bag uses the image, Carousel, from Shelly's Images. I made this gift bag as a thank you, for our neighbor, who helped my dad out with some things, recently.  The image is colored with bright, funky colors that reminds me of going to the local fair as a child and riding the carousel. The words, thank you, are punched with a punch by Martha Stewart.  The felt flowers are from my stash, as are the dew drop pearls that I used for the flower center.  The gift bag is stuffed with cheetos and other goodies.

I am entering this gift bag in the following challenges:
