Hi all!! I am knee deep in a huge mess in my craft room as I am still getting ready for the big event tomorrow - why oh why do I always wait until the last minute *sigh*  I have sooo much still to do and not much time to do it in so I will get right to it!! The theme for this event is to celebrate women (love that!) and so our products are supposed to center around pampering and enjoyment. So, I thought I would make some spa things and when I saw these cute little potion bottles I just knew I had to have them!! Once I had them, I decided that I needed to create a carrier for them....so this is what I came up with!! (By the way, I DID staighten out the ribbon, just too lazy to take a new pic, LOL!)I am pretty happy with it, I think the set really looks cute!  When I have more time, I will share the measurements and scoring and such on this little carrier in case anyone is interested in making one of their own!! I have to confess, I am enjoying coming up with all these fun new holders and such all by little self, LOL!!!! I never thought I had it in me, and yep, I had to throw a few away but finally got it right! I filled these bottles with bodywash, lotion, and homemade bath crystals, all with a tropical scent. Then, some stamps and embellishments completed this little gift set!! I am going to make some 3x3 cards to go with it because I think they would make great Mom's Day gifts too!!  Anyhoo, gotta get to making the rest of my stuff so I will be back on Monday with more details on this and another project to share!!! Have a wonderful weekend all  and thanks soooo much for stopping by!!!
