Aaaaahhhhhhhhh....relax...

This is actually SO appropriate for today.  My dear friend is watching my girls for me today and tomorrow while I'm at work, and I always joke that when she comes, it's like I have a wife.  I come home, the house is neat, the kids are happy, and I don't need to do ANYTHING, other than make dinner.  Aaaaahhhhhh.  I wish she could live here, lol.

Welcome to day 3 of peeks for the new My Time Made Easy Release!!!  I'll be sharing the Slip Cover template with you today, which you may have seen already if you were here over the weekend, I had another project I made with it for the JUGS Challenge.

How many times do you want to give "a little something" to someone special, but don't have a lot of money to spend???  The other day, I was in M's, and I came across some yummy looking bath goodies in the $1 bins.  They had these pretty bath pearls, loofahs, little knobby massagers, and pedicure kits, in these GREAT citrusy colors...including my personal favorite, orange.

I picked up a bunch of goodies, and came home and got to work.  Here's the whole ensemble, including a matching card:


not bad, eh??? Don't you LOVE the sentiments Lauren has included in the Take Time stamp set???  Pamper Yourself is just perfect!!  If you look at that berry layer, I created my own pattern using two of the other sentiments included in the set.  That large flower is from the new set called Petal Perfection.  I LOVE these flowers - Lauren will also be offering these in digi format this month -- FUN!! A cut file that coordinates with these flowers will be available as well, but I cut these out with my handy dandy craft knife, since I wanted to cut out the insides as well...

Shall we take a look inside the box???
Inside the box are two tubes of bath pearls, and a little pedicure kit.  I printed out some of the FABULOUS new digital papers by Kristin, called Perfect Petals, and wrapped them around the tubes of bath pearls.  I did tweak the colors a bit to have them coordinate with my project, and the products...I think that's what I love MOST about digi papers...the possibilities really are endless!!

So, tell me, what do you think of what you've seen so far???  There's more to come, so stay tuned!!!!
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Beautiful project! One of my fave color combos, and that presentation just makes the gift so much more special!

Well, if this wouldn't make someone happy to receive as a gift, well.....nothing would make them happy. Love the happy colors! I really need to make some of these gift packaging templates, but for some reason they scare me.

Tracey - You ROCK - this is so pretty - I love the unusual color combo and the pearls along the border. I also love that you made your own BG paper - gosh what a GREAT idea *wink* I might have to consider that too :-)

LOVE what you've done - great way to showcase Lauren's newest.
