May Project Parade ~ Day 10


It's Friday, and summer is on its way!! Woo-Hoo!!

Tosh here, and when I think summer, I think freedom!! Now, probably not in the way you'd imagine though. It has nothing to do with school projects or cold weather coming to an end. (I much prefer cold to heat.) Instead, it has everything to do with feet freedom. Oh, yeah!! No more confining socks or shoes!! *sigh*....bliss!! LOL

However, with the constant exposure to rough surfaces and heat, the feet tend to compensate by forming calluses and dry skin. Therefore, with this month's project parade theme being "Sizzlin Summer Fun!!", I thought foot care products would make a perfect gift.


I used Lauren Meader's Trendy Tool Tote Template for my gift box, and decorated it with images from the following Verve Sets: One Person, Relax, and Happy Days. I used coordinating Versamagic chalk inks to match the colors from the Bath and Body Foot scrub containers.

The borders were made with EK Success punches, the and dp is by Crate Paper. Finally, I added some ribbon and a bit of sparkle with some Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

Here's a look at the box without all the gift products inside and around:



Here's a close-up of the front with the sweet little palm tree and sentiment medallion:



I put a "Relax" sign on the left side:



And surf boards on the right side:

So, now it's your turn:

1. Play along with us and link up your new Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creation (posted May 17 or later) to the linky widget on the Day 1 parade post before midnight on June 7th. One lucky stamper will win a $30.00 gift certificate to the Verve Store. Verve Stamps are not required, but we LOVE to see ‘em!

2. For another chance to win, be sure to give the Divas a little shout-out in the comments section as we parade our Sizzlin’ Summer Fun creations. One lucky commenter during the course of the parade (May 17 ~ June 4) will win the Verve stamp set of their choosing!

  26. I love what you've done. You're going to laugh at me when I tell you...my favorite part is your stamping! I love the tones and gradients you are getting! I'm blown away. Seriously. I bought a rainbow pad 15 years ago (no joke) and have never been happy with anything other then solid stamped images. Well, until now! I adore all your stamped images on this package. Particularly the wave. It is quite inspiring. That and the tree. Oh and the surf boards. Love it!
