Welcome to the It's A Wrap Blog Hop!

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the It's A Wrap Blog hop featuring the Thankful Thursday Design Team!  We also have some amaaaaaazing guest designers joining us this month!!  This hop is all about Personalized gift wrap and packaging.  Here is my project:

*Timeless Twine - Raspberry Lemonade, Aqua Delight (brown and blue), Aqua Blue (blue and white), Raspberry

*Jaded Blossom - Make a Wish set
*Nestabilities Die
*Cosmo Cricket - patterned paper

*This was a fun one to do with the kids. We took a small priority mail box from the post office, and painted it with turquoise acrylic paint. That was their favorite part!

*Then I cut this tag using my Nestabilities, and did some inking and faux stitching.
*Next I took a fingerprint from each of my kids, and wrote their names underneath.  Can't get more personal than that!

*I took some self-adhesive paper, and coiled some twine onto them.

*I used the Make a Wish set from Jaded Blossom that has different Happy Birthday sentiments on it and used it all over this box.  It was perfect for this project!

*I love the bright colors, and the way everything came together on this present :O)  But wait..............

There are some great prizes for hopping along with us today!
