I'm So Excited! My Timeless Template Challenge 01

I am participating in the "My Timeless Template Challenge" - the very first one! I have been an admirer of Lauren's work for quite some time and am excited to participate! I used the "For Keep{sake}" template for my project. The challenge was to use bath products for inspiration. I made my own bath salts for the project. I just googled "homemade bath salts" and came up with lots of different websites. It was easy! Here's my project:

I love this little penguin image! I did little individual packets for single use using some small ziploc baggies. Here's a close up of the baggie:

I used the ribbon to make her little hula skirt. I trimmed off the edge so I was able to fray it up to the middle stitched part. I gathered it using mini glue dots and then trimmed the frayed part to fit the image. I used little strip of rhinestone stickers around the waist to bling it up a bit! Speaking of bling - I cut out the flower and her bikini top from an extra stamped image and glittered it, then layered it on top to give it some dimension. Cute, huh?!

I wrapped the ribbon around the lid and added the little "Relax" tag. It was a fun project! Now......who do I give it to??!!! Hmmm. Have to think about that one! Here's another view - of course, it looks much better IRL! I was bummed that I didn't have a rhinestone flower brad (that's on the top) that matched the color better, but I still think it works!

That's it for today! Stay tuned for my Blogger's Challenge to be posted tomorrow! It's an "Alter It" challenge. Have a great day!
