Wedding Gift

German Phrase of the Day: Wie lange kannst du die Luft anhalten? = How long can you hold your breath? Julia likes to count how long she can hold her breath when swimming with her daddy. It does seem to get longer...altho it's funny to see her counting on her fingers while her face is underwater.

Today I have the gift that went with yesterday's card (the photo shows the card again too) I used one of the Plain Jane cigar boxes from PTI and the stationary set. I decorated the stationary and envelopes according to Nichole's awesome tutorial using the Porcelein Prints DSP. For the outside of the box, I used Certainly Celery cardstock around the sides, and the DSP on the top, with small strips of DSP on the corners to hide the edges. I also used some DSP to cover the tin which comes with the stationary to include the envelope seals. Overall, it only took me about 3-3.5 hours to complete the entire project, including the card. I figure that's pretty good!

Hope you all have a great day, and don't forget to come back tomorrow for Prettie Wednesday! (I remembered what day it is today...pretty good, huh?)
