Don't Peek Behind The Curtain

Some of you have wondered who is behind the paper bag here at Pub Calls. Well, just like with Christmas presents, sometimes it is better not to peek. But for today the peek will be just grand because our sponsor is A Peek Into Yesterday. They have generously donated eight $25 gift certificates. That is a lot of scrapbooking goodness to spread around.

There have also been some hints (some not too subtle) over the past year that perhaps we should upgrade from the standard nondescript brown paper bag. But maybe we like the way it accents our eyes. ;) So here is today's challenge. Use your scrapbooking supplies to alter/decorate a bag that would express your personality. Then take a picture of that lovely bag, preferably with you wearing it. Pat at A Peek Into Yesterday has graciously created a special gallery for your uploads. There is also a thread over at APIY to which you can post.

The deadline for this challenge will be Tuesday, February 13, 6 p.m. EST. We will be judging directly from the gallery at APIY, so you do not have to link your creation in this post. Have fun; go wild; dare to leave the brown behind.

ETA: This will need to be a NEW bag, not one previously created for a challenge at another site. Naughty girls. And, we moved the deadline to give you some extra time.

HELP HELP HELP HELP
I registered at the APIY site yesterday, and it went through OK. Now I'm trying to upload my photo (ok, the 'bag') and I'm having tons of trouble. My file size is 109KB, and I do not know how to make it smaller !!! (The APIY site says to make sure that the size if under 100K)
I tried to post a message at the Forum, and it doesn't let me log in anymore !!!
Can I upload my work somewhere else? or would you (and APIY) only accept entries at their site ?
HELP HELP HELP

Thanks

If you're having trouble posting, PM me (elendae) or Pat (apiyadmin) and we'll try to get your upload issues resolved asap. Your files must be under 100k in size to upload to the gallery. :) So great to see so many "bag heads"! Thanks, PCP!
