Today's project was inspired by a mom/friend in my local mother's group who recently found out she has breast cancer. I have been a mix of emotions. She is in her early 30's. I can't imagine what she is going through as I sit here unable to absorb it myself. Our mother's group is fantastic, supportive, dependable, inspirational. This woman is having surgery on Monday. I wanted to make her a little something, a goody bag of sorts to at least let her know I'm thinking and praying for her. Along with baked goods and freezer meals I came up with this little gift.
My sister made each of us this sugar scrub for Christmas and I absolutely loved it. I made it for all of the kids teachers for Valentine's Day. I cannot say enough good things about this recipe! I found it HERE. And I could not believe how well the Peachy Keen Skunk Cheer Up Set went with the 'theme' of the gift!
I made the tag by just cutting a piece of chipboard and rounding the edges with the Creative Memories Oval cutting system. Then I matted it with paper from Heidi Grace Designs. The skunk, sentiment and flowers are all from Peachy Keen's Skunk Cheer Up Set. I stamped the skunk on printed paper and colored parts of it with Copic markers. I used the Recollections border punch and used a pearl pen by Viva Decor to accent it a bit.
I'd like to enter my project in the following challenges.
