Blogger’s Challenge #60


Today's Challenge was simply Birthdays. Hmmm, I didn't really want to make a card so I made an overstuffed basket with lots of bath stuff for a special friend.


Here is a close up picture of the tag and how overstuffed the basket is.



I am still using scraps and retired papers. I will try to d tutorial for the basket later tonight or in the morning. It was really easy! Don't forget to check out all the other players I am sure they will have some terrific things to share. See ya later.
