Holly Molly!! I can not beleive that today was my last day at the Physical Therapy Center!! wohooooooooo!! but the therapist is awesome and I have nothing for her! I decided yesterday night to do a quick card for her but this morning I said, just a plain card? that was a NO, NO for me (if you know me you know that I love to give small gifts any time for no reason, just for the fun of seing a smile face!!) So I said I have some Beauti Control products here (yes I am a BC Girl, just for my products!! I love them!!) so I have some of one of my favorite products from BC the Herbal Serenity Foot Cream (if you have not try this, I just say go for this one is incredible!!) well I said yes I have the creme but now what!! so I keep doing my breakfast and start eating when I thought you have a Scor Pal you can make something quick!! (my appointment was at 9:30 and it was almost 9:00) so I finished my breakfast and came to my workshop and start doing something (my DH said: "aren't you late?, lol) so I start working quicker! and this is what I did!! I got the idea from Vicki, she did a project this week and I thought that I can adapt it to my foot cream bottle!! and I was right, lol, I love it and I know she loves it too!, she was very happy with her lil gift, you know I love to see people smiling!

Hope you like it! Yes!! again my Floral Favorites! and Scallop Punches!

Take 2 pieces of pattern paper (31/2 x 2 3/4)
Glue them together and score it at 1½ and 2 on the 3 1/2 side (This is the part I was trying to know: if the papers do not move when I glue two pieces together and I worked in a tiny piece of paper on my table! and this was the result)

Remember the Challenge -Guideline in Spanish!

Just a lil note to remember you about the Sketch challenge that is running right now here! I have some request to post the details in Spanish so here they are! If you want to see the post about the challenge click here!

Estuve pensando en hacer algo diferente en el blog y decidí compartir con ustedes un proyecto semanal como un challenge para tí. Como esta es la primera semana del año, el challenge será sencillo: un "sketch", pero estaré trabajando tutoriales, clases con tema específico como por ejemplo: Amor, Madres, etc, plantillas, técnicas y detalles creativos que te reten a trabajar con tus sellos y "gooddies" en tus proyectos pendientes. Como parte de este proyecto, estaré regalando un "goodie bag" entre las participantes de los retos! durante ese mes (debes participar en al menos un reto, si participas en todos es mucho mejor pues recibes un "ticket" por cada participación, además de haber adelantado tus proyectos.

Talvez no pueda dejar mensajes todos los días, como quisiera, pero al tener un challenge semanal nos mantenemos en contacto! Este es el link al sketch del reto de esta semana, el primer sketch del 2008! Recuerda que los sketchs son sólo para inspiración y puedes trabajarlo como desees, puedes virarlo, alterarlo un poco, incluyendo el mensaje!


PS Recuerda dejar un comentario con el link a tu blog, si no tienes blog me puedes enviar un e-mail con el proyecto y lo publicaré en mi blog en el Slide Show de esa semana!
