"A blast from the Past"

Sorry I am late with my Monday Post, it was not that I was not up early enough, I wakened at 3.30ish and just could not get back to sleep.   I had computer problems this morning.
I hope you all had a good weekend.   If you have landed here from another Blog or by pressing a wrong button please stay a while, I love having visitors. 
While I was snowed in I spent time looking back at old projects.  
Till last year my friend Elaine had a little Tea Room, I had a cabinet where I displayed and sold a few things.  Cards were obviously the biggest seller although I did sell lots of boxes and other 3D makes.
These were a big seller:-

It was amazing the uses the customers put these to.  They could buy the bags and shoes separately or as a set.  The bags held quite a lot, the shoes were mostly used for things like a nice Handcream in one, nail polish, emery boards and lipstick in the other.  I did some Demo Days showing how to gift wrap the shoes or the whole lot as Gift Sets.
The shoes are made using a very old Template.  Papers 12x12 Paper Pads from The Works.  
Sue Wilson Dies for the fancy edges along the bags.  Also some of Sue`s Dies for the bows and flowers, any sparkly bits are from my stash.
That`s it for today.
Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate it.
