My Time Made Easy - A Year In Review!

Hello sweet friends and welcome to the final day of peeks and shares for the October My Time Made Easy Release!!  Today I'm sharing a project I created using the *new* Gifted template along with some previously released papers and stamps!

The Gifted box was so fun to assemble ... and the fun part is that when you're done, you have this pretty little bow up on top that interlocks and keeps your box closed!!  I used a couple of pretty papers from the Hauntingly Homemade paper collection to decorate the sides of my gift box and to add another layer to the pretty bow!

I created a coordinating card to match my gift box using more of the yummy Hauntingly Homemade papers along with a label from the Hauntingly Homemade Labels set and then I stamped a sentiment using the A Spooky Surprise acrylic stamp set!!  I love the rouched paper ruffle made from a 1" strip of the patterned paper!  The bow is tied onto the middle of the card using Ambrosia Cantalope seam binding and black lace trim!

I made this set for a friend of mine who is a graphic artist/web marketing manager who has been helping me out with a couple projects ... I think he'll like the Apple Cake and Carmel Sauce inside the Gifted box, don't you??!!??

A spooky treat ... that is good enough to eat :)
