Prima Gift Box

So, I just got home from a trip visiting my BFF on Long Island. I was born and raised there and it's such a treat to go up. We don't go very often. Ryan and I went on Saturday and had plans to stay until tomorrow. We had a wonderful time walking around Main Street, shopping, having lunch and just hanging out. Today, we were going to hit the beach. Sigh. It wasn't meant to be. Ryan started running a fever last night and had a headache/stomach ache. He was pretty miserable, so we decided to head home this morning. Luckily, he's bouncing back. (Already giving me a hard time because I won't let him outside to play with his friends. Guess that's a good sign.)
Onto happier news. I got together with my sweet SIL, Patty O'Malley, last week to celebrate her birthday. She's an avid cardmaker, like me, and we both love the same types of products. Anyway, I had made this gift box using a bunch of Prima goodies, a while ago and she had commented on how much she liked it. So, I filled it up with some of my favorite vintage goodies and gave it to her. She loved it!
Here are some pics of the box. I used notecards from Prima's Annalee collection along with flowers, felt, and vintage trinkets.



And here's what I put inside.




I'm so glad we share a love for the same things. :)

Well, I'm off to tend to the patient. It's our last week of summer vacation, so I want him to get better so we can enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by. :)
