Mommy Time!!!

As you probably noticed from my post yesterday, Charmaine is having a baby!! Woo-Hoo!! And I am blessed to be on two design teams with her. Yesterday I made a baby card for Isabelle for the Verve blog shower, so today I made something for Charmaine for the Stamper's Dream Blog Shower. I figured it was time for some *Mommy Pampering*!!! So I altered this Soap Gift Box by Partylite. The box and soap packaging was already fantastic, so I just personalized it a bit. The box contains 6 different handmade soaps, and I labeled them with 3 sentiments...Rest, Relax and Restore.

For the Medallion on the outside of the gift box, I used two different JustRite sets: The *Pamper Yourself* Circle sentiment from the Girl Time Set, and the Striped Circle Border from the 10 Designer Centers and Borders Set. The 2" Wood Stamper has two different circle sizes in it so you're able to *layer* the circles. I then set up my own sentiments in the center: Rest, Relax and Restore, with the Trompe Script Complete Font Set and the Trompe Script Lowercase Font.

The yummy papers are Everafter (Cosmo Cricket), and Smokey Gray (PTI). I thought it would be fun to make an *elegant* (and I use that loosely) bow with the 1 1/2" Twill from SU!. The corner was created with the allDeco Victorian punch, and the border was made with a Fiskars punch. Finally, I added a touch of bling with Bronze Rhinestones and Pewter Pearls (Kaisercraft), and ink distressed everything with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink)

For the soaps, I used my Rectangle Nestablities (Spellbinders), my Harmony Rectangular Stamper and the Trompe Script Upper and Lowercase Fonts again. The little flowers were punched with PunchBunch Punches and the Rhinestones are Kaisercraft and Zva Creative.

Now, the rest of the Dream Team is celebrating the soon-to-be arrival of Isabelle too, so click on the names below to see what they've come up with:
