Top Notch Template

It is storming like crazy here this morning, and I'm hoping the power doesn't go out before this post is up and running. I have a project I'm really excited to show today. When Leigh Ann first emailed the new template to me, I was in the midst of the creative blahs and hadn't a clue what I was going to do with it! But yesterday, when I got home from mailing out my swaps, I started cleaning off my desk. I don't know how it got messy when I hadn't created a thing for weeks, but it was. And as I was putting things back where they belong I found a stamp set I got ages ago, and the light went on and I knew what I'd be making with this template! I'm so excited to show you!


I love that little girl splashing in the puddle. I think it's such a fun image for spring! And the template, called Top Notch, is another one that stays shut all by itself. But I had to add a little ribbon for fun! I love satin ribbon, and I've heard people say about it not holding its shape very well. I never believed them, until I tied a bow with the saddlestitch ribbon, and now I know what they are talking about! But, satin it is for this project, since that's what I have in Spring Moss. And why did I add the ribbon, besides for fun?


Wait for it! Wait for it!


To add the cute little sentiment, "You're my rainy day friend." I am hoping my daughter will want this for one of her sweet little friends whose birthday is coming up in April. Sometimes she doesn't want one of my creations, so if she doesn't, it can stay on my desk, or I'll give it to one of my rainy day friends ;)

If you want to see some gorgeous eye candy, check out what the rest of the Perfect Presentation team came up with using this template. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

This is A-DOR-A-BLE!! Perfect for today. I bet we got the storm right after you did. Temperature dropped....pouring rain and then BAM - snow storm...say what?? Anyhow - I think any little girl would love this....it's just sooo cute and the color combination is fantastic. Satin ribbin sure is pretty....except for that bow thing - heh.

Wow, this is so perfectly done! Love how you have tied the bow on the side and put the sentiment on the slide underneath the flap; very clever and fun! Awesome job!

Cute image. I really like the dotted paper and color combo. And how fun is that box with it's interesting closure and sentiment hidden underneath. You didn't mention how big the box is.
