THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS

Hi all!! Well, the workshop went very well last night - we had tons of fun and laughed all night!! Great gals - I was happy to meet them all!! Today I wanted to share the little gift I made for my hostess. I really appreciate that these ladies are willing to open their homes up, invite their friends over, and let me come and stamp with them so I think it is important to make a personal little something from me to them to show my appreciation! In keeping with the Valentines theme of the workshop, I made this cute little diaper fold goodie bag - I tweaked the dimensions on it to make it large enough to fit the cello bag of Hershey kisses inside! I also made a matching 3x3 card. She really liked it, which makes ME happy - LOL! I used the Love You Much Bundle again - just love this yummy Candy Lane Paper and the stamps are just fabulous!! I think I will make these for teacher's gifts as well - they go together very quickly and I think you can really make them cute! So, off to blurf some and then get ready - I have another workshop tomorrow and need to get some projects done! Thanks so much for stopping by today - I appreciate YOU!
Project Recipe:
Paper - Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red card stock, Candy Lane Designer Series Paper
Inks - Riding Hood Red Classic Ink
Stamps - Love You Much
Accessories - 3/4 inch Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4 inch Circle Punch, Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon, Medium Cello Bag
