May Project Parade ~ Day Four


Happy Thursday, everyone!  It's Mercy here, and I am bringing you Day Four of the Sizzlin' Summer Fun Project Parade!  I knew exactly what I wanted to do when the announcement was made regarding the theme of this month's parade.  It's almost summertime, and that means that it's time to get ready to play in the pool...so I created a POOL KIT that anyone could grab on the way out to next pool party!




I used the new "Relax" stamp set to create a decorative insert for the kit along with some patterned papers from October Afternoon's Farm Fresh Paper Pad.  The images were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I added some stitching and 1" Red Ribbon to the panel, then slid the insert onto the front of the Clear Drawstring Bag.  I filled the bag with some summer necessities: sunblock, chap stick, snacks, goggles, nose plugs, bottled water, sunglasses, diving sticks, and some extra cash.  Now I can hit the pool in style and totally prepared to have fun in the sun! 

That's it for me!  Be sure to read the rules below for a chance to win some amazing goodies!  Until later......

  11. This is a great project! Now I want to go have a day in the sun, preferably at the beach! Hmmm, I need some almonds...

  12. What a sweet idea... this would make a fabulous gift. Replace the contents a little and the theme of the insert and you've got a get well soon gift for someone recovering from surgery, or a pamper yourself gift for a stressed out mom, or a comfort kit for a missionary far from home. The possibilities are endless.
