In a Pinch

* Second post for today scroll down for newer post*

Edit: No baby yet. It seems it might not be too much longer, though. So waiting with phone in hand.

Hello, I am sitting by the phone waiting to find out if I need to make a trip to the hospital. My second daughter is pregnant and was having some pain so the doctor told her to go to labor and delivery. We are not sure if they will keep her so I am waiting. It is about and hour or so away so I hope they don't wait too long. She really isn't due until next month so she is almost a month early. So I just might be welcoming our 9th grandchild into the world today. She didn't want to find out the sex until the baby was born so I am excited to find out so I can start making things. I like to do gender spacific and have ideas either way. I will let you know either way.

Now onto my project. I made this "In a Pinch" template from Lauren Meader. She just recently opened her own web store. She has the most fabulous templates. She also now has her own line of clear stamps to go along with them and even digital paper to match. She has all right there for you to make a fast and easy gift packaging. Papertrey Ink has her older templates called Timeless Templates. This month she has Butterfly stamps which would go with this one but I don't have them yet. They were just released at the beginning of this week.

I used some textured CS from SU! for the box itself. The PP is from Basic Grey Sultry. I just love the colors. The border punch is Martha Stewart deep cut border punch. Reminds me of a lattice fence. The flower is from Maya Road. I used some sticker silver brads for extra detail. The ribbon is Spring Moss saddle stitched from Papertrey Ink. I used a large button I bought at Wal-Mart for the closure. I punched double holes a threaded it with Button Twine.

I made this yesterday afternoon and nothing in mind to do with it. I just may put a little gift in it to give my daughter if she does happen to have the baby today.

Have a wonderful day,
Thanks for stopping by and having a look.

Great job on the projects. I love the textured paper.
Sorry about the false alarm. I don't think it will be too much longer.
