A Special gift for you

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone! 
I hope your week is going good so far! 
It has been busy for me but I was able to sneak in some crafting time, yay! I made a cute little birthday treat box for the sweet neighbor boy who is having a birthday in a couple days. It's perfect for treats or even a gift card will fit perfectly! 
I used a fun stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps for my project :) 
I found this adorable whale favor treat box at the Silhouette Store #86934 and thought it would be fun to make. It went together super fast~project done in 20 minutes :)  I embossed the waves with the divine swirls folder and the celebrate is from My Creative Time's~Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies and More set. 
I added a cute tag using Jaded Blossoms~Mini Tag Dies 2 die and distressed the edges.  The sentiment is stamped with Pretty Cute Stamps~Sip Enjoy Relax stamp set. I tied on a cute bow with 
3 Girl JAM~Antique White ribbon, a sparkly brad from my stash and finished with skittles in the corner from my friend, Carri at DoubleClick.  
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Double Click Challenge~From the Ocean
2.) Pretty Cute Stamps Challenge~Birthday 
3.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday 
4.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #104 Anything Goes
5.) Jo's Scrap Shack Challenge #97 Emboss and Distress
6.) 3Girl JAM July~Anything Goes

  3. This is so adorable!! Love the embossed waves, the cute bow on your whale's tail and the skittles!! Thank you for joining the Doubleclick Skittles challenge! Design Team Member - Payel (Beau Monde Designs)

  4. This is just ADORABLE! LOVING that whale and the waves!!!!

  5. What a fun treat box. Your little neighbor boy is going to enjoy it, especially since no one else is going to have one like it!.

  6. So cute Sherrie,embossing the waves really make them pop!

  7. "whale"! I think this is super cute. lol love it friend. hugs

  8. What a wonderful birthday treat. TFS and joining us at Jo's for Funday Friday

  9. Oh my gosh, so absolutely adorable, Sherrie!! I love the whale!! How cute that he has a little water spout, too!! Embossing the waves was a perfect touch!! I just love this!! I need to see if there is a similar file for Cricut!!

    I hope Arya is feeling much better. There is nothing worse than the stomach flu...unless it's the stomach flu in the summer, taking away from play time. Ugh. Hopefully no one else in your family got it. I'm pretty sure the tornado that went through your craft room picked up steam and hit mine head on!! Seriously, it's to the point I've had to forge a trail to my desk and then try to shove supplies out of the way to craft!! I need like a day to get it in order.

    It is such a beautiful day here...70's, sunny, little humidity. I'm sitting on my deck to catch up with commenting. Hard to believe it's late July :) We had a hard time deciding where to go on our family vacation in late September this year. I wanted Key West but my Mom totally vetoed it...she refuses to drive across the bridge to get there (truthfully, I'd have a hard time with it, too!!) I think we've decided to go back to the North Carolina coast because my parents are thinking of retiring there and want to see what's available. As long as there's an ocean, I'll be happy :) hope you have a wonderful rest of the week my dear friend!! Give Arya a comforting hug for me (and the other two just because :) Happy Wednesday!! Big hugs :)
