Friendship...a gift!

Good Morning...I'm so happy's my first day with both kids back to school and I got to sleep in...after they left of course!

Today I have a little gift to share with you. It's a matchbook treat bag I made for the template challenge at Just Us Girls, but also for several other challenges too.

I started with a template I found in blogland, but I had to make several changes to it to accommodate my LOTV image and the size of my little treat inside! Aren't these little girls the cutest!?! They are sharing some tea and so am I. I packaged up two tea bags in one of my favorite flavors for me and a friend...tea for two, right! I haven't been able to spend much time with my neighbor due to our work and family schedules and I think I'll give this to her really soon so we can share it!

Lili of the Valley #62 - Let's go dotty for circles
Just Us Girls #48 - 3D/template
Card Patterns #79 - sketch
CREATE Blog - One word sentiment
The Shabby Tea Room #25 - Old Meets New
(Old: flowers, New: stamp)

My Crafty Recipe:
Stamps: Lili of the Valley - little girls tea time
