Rest and relaxation

Nothing like getting away for some good old R&R to recharge your batteries...was hard coming back to reality!  (my reality right now is a van load of stuff I have to unpack and put away...yuck!)  So, during camp I worked on several projects that I printed up ahead of time, using some templates from "My Time Made Easy"  - super fun, easy to follow directions and adorable designs, I had a blast making them!  First is a tool box that can be used to hold a variety of things - how cute would this be as a scrappy present filled with adhesives, or other tools? (it's surprisingly sturdy!)   I used the flower from the Now and Always set, and finished it up with some Echo Park paper and a felt border .



Next is a cute little gift box with a wavy, slip cover top - super cute design!  I decorated it with some MME paper, lovely trim and a button and made a tag with the Happy Birthday stamp from Life's Little Moments.  



The list of hop participants can be found on the ippity blog as always, The stamp sets used (as well as many other sets and tools to make your life easier) are available for purchase on my {ippity} site.   thanks for stopping by, till next time...
