birthday...box in a bag gift

You have seen them around blogland and I have jumped on the band wagon and made a box in a bag. Todd and I are going to my friend's 40th birthday party tomorrow night and although the invitation said no gifts I just couldn't go empty handed so...a handmade gift.

For this Birthday...Box in a Bag gift I, again, used the Bella Rose DSP from Stampin' Up! along with the Dreams du Jour stamp set. I got the box in a bag template from HERE. I made the cards really simply so it didn't take me too long. I also got to use my Big Shot for the envelope and flowers on the front. I still love that Big Shot! I think everything is pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions just shoot me an e-mail!

Today is a busy day for us as we'll be at the fair most of the day today. Oh, and guess what? Kyler and I went to get our exhibitor bracelets at the fairgrounds today and decided to check in on our entries...we both got blue ribbons on BOTH of the things we entered. Go, us! LOL!! Kyler was SO excited though. One thing we've learned about going to the fair with Kyler is that we take a friend for him to ride the rides with and have fun with so...Chris is on his way! Woohoo! Watch out fair food...here I come!

Oh, and girls...do you like blog candy? Do you like blog candy to the tune of $200? Well, go HERE and check it out!

I hope that you have a super Thursday and get lots of stamping done! See you tomorrow!
