This is a two-day blog hop. So, please be sure to stop by both days to see all the amazing projects.

Now on to my project: 

I created a 3-D watering can using the Welcome Spring set from  I used paper from a garden-themed set by K  & Co. that I've had in my stash for a while.  This project was easy to put together and fun to dress up!  I added some sheer ribbon to the handle and embossed the daisies to add some texture to them.  I placed two mini Bath & Body Works body soaps in a cellophane bag and tied with more sheer ribbon.  I embellished with a cardstock butterfly.  I think this turned out so pretty, and it's a different way to present a gift to that special mother or mother figure in your life!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll have a different project posted tomorrow, so hope to see you again!

Now hop on over to Anita's blog next!  Below is the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way:
