Mission Accomplished

All that was planned for today got done...WooHoo!

Becca woke up today feeling much better and no fever (kept her home just to be safe), started a beef stew in the crockpot, headed out on my shopping mission (by myself I might add...Dan stayed home with B), came home put away everything that was purchased (new kitchen glasses(we were down to just 3 from the original set plus a bunch of mismatched oddities), a pair of new shoes, a new shirt & sweater, some socks, and a bunch of storage items from the Container Store), voted, and then came home and got pictures of my projects from yesterday.

So here they are...

The Scrapbook Cafe provided me with some papers from the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses line and everything else you see here on the layout except for the cardstock, letter stickers/foam Thickers & the chipboard heart. On my 4x6 picture I used an Ali Edwards digital stamp.

When I have time (which is very rare anymore) I like to take my time and wrap my presents creatively. Here's a look at what I came up with using some more of the BG papers.

I just wrapped my boxes in plain brown mailing paper and then cut a strip of paper to make a band around the box. On top of each band I placed a paper flower. The big flower I recently saw directions for on the internet. (Basically it is a large scalloped circle wrapped around a large button or brad and then pleated to make the petals) I then glittered the middle of the flower. the flower on the small box is layered diecut flowers in 3 different sizes and the centered is a fringed piece of paper that you rollup, glue, then un furl the edges.

So that's it...my creativity from yesterday and a very productive day today.

Glad you managed to have a day out for yourself Jen, and that Becca is feeling better. Absolutely love your LO and wrapping ideas; wish you could come over here and teach me!
