Take care of yourself!

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!!

Wow, I can't believe we are almost to the weekend! Yeah!! I am hoping for sunny, warm weather so we can finish up some much needed yard work:) What's your plans?

Even though it is not my design team week over at FCCB ... I just had to join in the fun challenge going on this week.  The challenge is: Buttons & Bows-a project with at least one button and one bow on it. I hope you find time to come join us too:)
My project is for a special friend who is going through some tough times and though I would try and cheer her up and to let her know I am here for her.  I thought I would pamper her with a yummy bag of Hershey chocolate kisses and a gift card to a spa so she could go get a manicure, pedicure or a message. Doesn't that sound relaxing? Might have to grab one for me too.. lol!
I cut this box from the Wrap it Up cartridge at 9 1/2. The flower was cut from the Flower Shoppe cartridge at 3" and some of the layers at 2 1/2 and 2 3/4. I used Tim Holtz distressed in-Walnut stain to ink around some of the edges for dimension.


The scalloped circle behind the flower is from a Spellbinders Nestibilites Lacey Circles. The frame is from Spellbinders-Fancy tags which I also distressed and the sentiment is from My Creative Time ~This and That stamp set. The papers for this project are all from Heidi Grace-Daisy Dear collection. To finish it up, I added a fun satin bow, button and the twine is from My Craft Spot~cappuccino.

I am also entering this in FUN challenges over at:
1.)  Little Scrap Pieces ~Use Sky Blue
2.) My Creative Time ~Throwback Thursday-project of your choice-used older cartridge
Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K

  29. Sherrie this is beautiful! I'm sure this will cheer your friend up (including chocolate and spa services can't hurt either)... I love that flower! I'm also glad to hear I'm not the only one who has a ton of yard work to do! We are having wacky weather here, and there were even tornado warnings (which is highly unusual for California)! Guess the yard work will have to wait (darn)! :)
