Anything Goes at 7 Kids College Fund!

Happy Wednesday, my crafty friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. :o)

Today begins a fun new challenge at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog, so I hope you'll join us! I was in need of a pretty little gift, so I turned to the gorgeous Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments collection. I made a pillow box using one of my favorite designs, which is part of my contribution to this month's I Feel the Love Project recipients. We are showering love upon victims of domestic violence and their children.
With such beautiful paper, I did not want to over-embellish it. After wrapping it with tulle and tying a floofy bow, I centered it with a lovely burlap butterfly. It and the tiny trail of flowers behind it are from Petaloo's Apricot Burlap Blossoms and Butterflies collection. For my sentiment, I used one of the lovely banners included in the Sweet Sentiments paper pad.
Inside of the box is an array of sweet flowers from the Tattered Lace Lacy Daisy metal die set. I LOVE this line, as everything is so elegant. I kept the two sizes of lacy daises separate, but layered the shadow dies. They are centered with pearls to coordinate with the Wild Orchid Crafts pearl sprays I tucked within the tulle. The papers are also from Sweet Sentiments.
You have two weeks to play along with us, so I hope to see you linking up at the Challenge Blog! We love seeing your creations! :o) Have a blessed day, everyone!

    Oh so sorry its been a while since I have visited! I have been so crazy busy this summer. As much as I am looking forward to my sons wedding, I will be happy to have it behind us, hehe! I have been helping with some of party favors, decorating etc for his along with my God daughter who just got married Saturday. I also have a niece getting married in 2 wks on my side of the family and a niece and nephew on my hubby's side-both in Sept so it's been busy!
    Of course, because it's all family I have been asked to help one way or another with each of them doing party favors, invites, table decorations..etc. that is why I have been missing a bit :( Things will settle down real soon and I will get back to blogging/crafting! Missing my buddies :(
    Have a super evening my friend!
