Happy Thursday Everyone!!! Today it is bright and sunny out!! For that I am grateful since it is going to be one busy day and I need to have lots of ambition or gong ho to get it all done!!

I am so excited!! I just went to Flourishes and saw that I won last week's challenge prize!! Woo hoo!! Now I have an excuse to go and get the Sweet Pea set I have had my eye on forever!! I can't wait!!!

Anywho....Since today is Thursday, it is time for another Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge. This week Lori sent each of the design team members this photo from Lovely Presentations!!

I saw this and thought this is perfect for the little gift boxes I wanted to create for my teenage nieces for a belated Easter treat since we missed getting together with them when our family was sick. Here are my creations.
Both gift boxes use the Bag it Up template by Leigh Ann Baird available at the Wild flower Patch shop.
This first box is inspired by the red bottle of lotion with the lily on it. I colored the I am the Way lily from Our Daily Bread Designs with copics and then clear embossed it and popped it up on a circle I had embossed in Swiss dots. I also dry embossed the red background in Swiss Dots and sewed a border.
The second gift box is created with the lily of the valley image from Our Daily Bread Designs Easter Blessings stamp set. I colored it in copics and it was inspired by the picture of Lavender on the lavender lotion bottle. Again I dry embossed the background with swiss dots, sewed a border and popped up the image on dimensionals.

I hope you are inspired by my two creations.
For more inspiration for this challenge please visit my dt sisters:
and this week's guest:
