August Project Parade ~ Day 9

Hi everyone! It's Jackie here! Don't you love all of the projects the Diva's have showcased so far? I am amazed every month at the creativity!! Well, I decided to do a little something for my Mom's Group. This is my second time focusing on these very important women because they appreciate everything I make them! LOL! We meet twice a month for coffee and while we usually meet at Starbuck's, we have decided to meet at one house so we can be loud and crazy without anyone staring at us!

I thought bringing each of them a darling little bag like this would be perfect. They all love my Butterscotch Chip Cookies and packaging them in batches of two means no one eats too many! (My real motive is to keep as many as I can at home! LOL!)

I used the new Verve set, Delightful and Delicious. What a perfect set for coffee and cookies.....I stacked the three cups from the set in Dark Chocolate Ink from Papertrey and colored them in with Copic Markers. The image was cut out with Oval Nestabilities.

The sentiment is also from Delightful and Delicious. It was stamped in Pure Poppy ink (PTI) and cut out with the Ribbon Tag Trio by Spellbinders. I tied a small red bow with embroidery floss. The bag itself is a My Timeless Template from Papertrey, specifically the Pretty Petal Pocket. I added the cookies to a medium cello bag and tied it with Pure Poppy Twill Ribbon (PTI).

We would love for you to join us this month! To play along, just make a project or card that shows us your take on the Happiness for Hostesses theme. Verve Stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em we love to see 'em! Then just add a link to your creation to the Mr. Linky form in DAY ONE's POST before 8PM Mountain September 12. Two lucky participants will win a stamp set of their choice from the Verve Store. We've also hidden another $25 gift certificate somewhere along the parade for a random commenter. So if you like what you see, be sure and give a little shout out in the comments of each post! Have fun and good luck!
