and at
SOUS !!!

For our Fun day Friday Challenge at
  Jo's this week

" In the Water " . 

I hope you join us , and please feel welcome to visit my design team sisters blogs for some wonderful inspiration !! 

For the SOUS challenge I decided to make this "Just keep Swimming " themed gift box . 
The water is from a file from My Scrap Chick . All of the rest of the die cuts can be found at the Silhouette store .  

This was a super fun project to put together . The hardest part was deciding which of the adorable underwater life cuts I was going to use . I cut out the shark and a couple more fish , but sadly there was no more room in my mini ocean . They hopefully will make an appearance in a future project !

The Stamping Chef

I made this rose topiary from the Silhouette store .
