When I finished creating my items for the Wacky Women's Watercooler Blog Hop, I looked at them and tried to figure my thought process for these items.  Then it came to me it  was the phrase "finally a day that REALLY is  all about YOU".

My first project is a gift bag to hold a gift card or gift certificate for the bride & groom.  My inspiration for this gift bag was a mini album I created for a swap for Stampin' Up!'s 2013 Convention. I used several elements from the album to create this darling gift bag.

Jeannine, what a gorgeous wedding card, and so unusual!  I love the colours and the design of the card.  It's like a sandwich board.  I've never tried that design and will have to now.  Oh, it's a gift bag.  Just re-read your post.  I defintiely have to try this.  Maybe not for a wedding, but it's so cute!  I love that sentiment, too: "Finally, a day that really is all about you!"  It's one of those sentiments that I'll keep whether it's retired or current.  I love the way you've used it on these two cards.  Thanks for sharing and for the ideas.

Beautiful wedding set. I like how you used the Epic Day DSP and let so much of it show. It's my favourite DSP right now.

From one Jean to another…thanks for sharing your many talents on the Watercooler Hop and making for a fun pair of bookends between the two of us.  I love your theme…A day that really is all about you.  Perfect for a Wedding, Birthday or many other occasions.  Some I had thought about but for some reason Wedding's had slipped my mind.  Your bag is an awesome gift receptacle that pairs beautifully with the card – that will really wow the gift table at any wedding (not to mention the bride and groom).  Love all the detail and combination of fun products.  And of course you know already that I love the Epic Day papers.  What a great combination with your already established theme.  I love the gender neutrality of those papers.

See you round the watercooler!
