Project Parade Day Four ~ It's a Girl Thing

Hi everyone! It's Jackie here and today is my turn on the Project Parade! Haven't the girls projects been amazing? I've been blown away so far!!

When Jen announced this month's theme, I knew the three women I wanted to celebrate: my closest "Mom" friends. We met when my youngest daughter and their daughters were in kindergarten and we all hit it off immediately. My girls trust each one of these women and I know I can count on each of them if I need help with ANYTHING! Once a month we go out to dinner and another time during that month we all meet at the local Starbucks for coffee! I wanted to make them just a little something that told them what
they mean to me!!
I made three Rounded Wrap Up boxes from Lauren Meader's Timeless Templates line. If
you haven't tried these templates what are you
waiting for? They are fabulous for people like me who can't figure anything out!! LOL! I used the new beautiful Verve set, Because of You. I am so in love with this set! Each box was made with Kraft cardstock (thank you Jen T, Jen d and Julee!). I used just one color of ink, dp and ribbon on each box. The colors are Hibuscus Burst, Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink). I stamped the word "Friend" on the top portion of the box with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The phrase, also from this set, was stamped in Memento Black then over stamped with the silhouette flowers from the set in the coordinating ink and finally cut out with Oval Nestabilities. I added some Angel Wings Shimmerz to each of the flowers and they are super shimmery in real life! The Hibiscus Burst flower was stamped off once to tone down the pink.

Here is a close up of the box. I will be tucking in a Starbucks Gift Card to each box along with a few chocolates! I'm sure they'll love them!

We can't wait to see what you come up with for this month's Project Parade! To play along, just make a project or card that fits your style and celebrates a woman in your life. Then just add a link to your creation to the Mr. Linky then just add a link to your creation to the Mr. Linky form IN THIS POST before 8PM Mountain on Thursday, May 14.
