Hi! Welcome to my stop on the Cocoa Daisy Day of Inspiration Blog Hop!
You should have come from Mandy Kay Starner’s blog.
The team were all given a Maya Road canvas hip bag to alter,
And we are sharing them with you today,
As part of our Inspiration Day and Blog Hop.
If you’re starting here, be sure to go to the Cocoa Daisy blog
and check out the rest of the team’s bags!
Here’s my Maya Road hip bag.
I’ve dyed it yellow before playing with paint and ink.
I was inspired by the colours, design and print on this piece of artwork.

I found the art on pinterest,
it was linked back to "My Soul Soup",
but the pinterest link  now goes to an empty page.
As part of the blog hop I have not one but two Cocoa Daisy stamps to giveaway!

I’ll announce the winner here on Tuesday.
Good luck!

  1. Awesome bag Sharmaine, I love it so much!!
    Yes I am a FB follower too :-)
    and you know what I'd like to see is a background stamp that looks like the folds in long drapes.
    Btw, LOVING this hop, the bag idea is inspired (and inspiring)!

  2. Oh I love your bag and the colors that remind me why I love spring so much. I have LIKED CD on FB already. My idea for a stamp set woould be something with making a difference in your world and walk daily. RAK someone today. DIAL in today. (Deliberate Intentional Act of Love). Uplifting and then more stamps for cheer and teens. Anything would be great!@ Happy NSD today.

  3. Love your version of the bag!

  4. This is so super artistic. If I designed a stamp I would have to add butterflies and a "Have a Happy Day" greeting. :)

  5. I also like CD on Facebook.

  6. Love your bag... it's totally YOU!
    Ummm.... my stamp idea would be journaling stamps for quotes. So it would be something like "..." with a few lines in it. Does that make sense?!! LOL!

  7. Oh and I already follow CD on Facebook

  8. Great job on the bag, love it!!

  9. absolutely LOVE this! love the colors ...some of my fav!

  10. Gorgeous bag! Loving the dying and the contrast of the yellow and blue!

  11. Ack, sorry, I forgot to say that I already like CD on FB and a stamp design.....hmmmm....I would love to see some CD border stamps.....that look like trims.

  12. This is fabulous, love it!

  13. I love how you've taken your inspiration piece and made it your own! The colors are so cheery, and the stamping is great--reminds me of stitching. Your quote reminds me of something my son might say to me. ;) Cute!

    And my idea for a CD stamp is a lightbulb. Often when I am journaling I come up with ideas that I don't want to forget so I draw a lightbulb in the margin so it is easy to go back and find all my "bright ideas". :)

  14. liked on FB and love your bag!

  15. I love quotes and this is no exception. Love your inspiration piece which is quite timely for me right now as you see we lost our beloved pug 3 wks ago. So my idea for a stamp set would be dog quotes like: "The dog represents all that is best in mankind".....there are so many. Here is a link to one of the sites I use for pages:
    I've also liked CD on FB and tagged two friends with the site (one is the owner of a fabulous store in San Jose...Scrapbook Island. Laurie is fabulous.

  16. Oh I love this! Very pretty piece! Thanks for the chance to win! Stamp idea...triangles seem to be popular now so maybe something along the lines of triangles in a pattern.

  17. That's a toughie... everyone else seems to be more creative than I am so I'm not sure. I do like stamp sets where you use the pieces to make something (like build cupcakes or make a cityscape). So maybe something like that.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. I also like Cocoa Daisy on fb.

  19. Ooh I love how died this yellow first. With the blue and red its truly amazing. Gorgeous

  20. LOVE your bag Sharmaine. I have one of these sitting in my cupboard here that i have been 'thinking' about for ages. Seeing all the different designs, might get me motivated to actually do something on it. Beautiful.

  21. My idea for a stamp is animal print backgrounds that could be stamped into alpha templates.

  22. I lliked CD on FB, too!

  23. I don't need to be entered in the drawing. I just wanted to leave you some love for you bag. I love the color combo and how you created it from your inspiration piece- very pretty!

  24. Awesome Sharmaine :)
    My stamp idea would be a distressed diamond/argyle background stamp
    I also like CD on FB

  25. Cute bag! I follow CD on FB
