Decorated Paper Bag

Today ...
I want to decorated a paper bag , ooh .. it was not an easy thing!
but really was very challenging ...,

Materials :
Sitting Tilda with Teddy Bear;
decorated with lace, pearl, rhinestones, buttons, die cut out and embossed the sentiment

I get a new experience from TOMIC this week, 
a picture about a horse that I recently I saw a horse with a shape like that,
This is the picture :

I have copied a part of the explanation about that  picture from TOMIC :
The Dalahorse is one of the unofficial symbols of Sweden and is comes from the northern part of the country called Dalarna. Originally, this horse was a toy for children to play with during the long winter days. After that, the colors were brought to the horse and the most famous one is the red one. This horse represented Sweden at the World Exhibition in New York in 1939, and became internationally known. The biggest of those horses measures 13 meters and is situated near the Swedish town of Avesta
Very interesting is it ? knowing different cultures from other countries that we have not heard..
A priceless experience  :)

Challenges :
TOMIC#24 - Use a paperbag and get inspired by the picture
It's a Magnolia Challenge #19 : Buttons and bling 
MDUC #112 : So Sentimental

(as this song inspired me when I decorated my card)

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree

Rocking around the Christmas tree
at the Christmas party hop ..
Mistletoe hung where you can see
every couple tries to stop ..
Rocking around the Christmas tree,
let the Christmas spirit ring ..
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie
and we'll do some caroling ..

 You will get a sentimental
feeling when you hear
Voices singing let's be jolly,
deck the halls with boughs of holly
Rocking around the Christmas tree,
have a happy holiday ..
Everyone dancing merrily
in the new old-fashioned way ..

hope you like this song too dear my sweet friends ..
Imagine my Edwin so crowded with his X'mas lightning around the X'mas tree
but he stills singing along .... "Rocking around the Christmas tree" .. :D
