Simply Sundays "Designer's Choice"

Good afternoon

**If you are looking for the Lasting Memories" post, please scroll down**
Okay, I am so excited about this project.  This week over at Getting Cricky for our Simply Sundays it's Designer's Choice and I was a bit worried about it until I got my sample stamps in the mail on Wednesday.  Of course I had to play right away because Kristal's stamp are awesome!!!  The only problem I had was deciding what I wanted to make.  Hehehe  Well I am currently out of town (well not as I am writing this), but when this posts I will be...hehehe.  I went home for my best friend's wedding and since I was gonna see my mom (it's been awhile) I made her this little gift.

This cut was from the For Her Delight svg file from Michelle at Scrapping Table.  Isn't it just adorable?  The cut is wonderful and so easy to put together.  I cut it as large as I could get it, so approximately 11.5 inches.  I added a little bit of pearls and a flower to the toe and then I used Kristal's stamp "Miss Shoe..." from the Fabulous Friends stamp set as a label inside the shoe.  I filled a baggie with some chocolates and viola, a simple but beautiful gift.  I just loved the idea of the sentiment, since I do really miss seeing my mom.  Now, seriously, wouldn't these make some awesome bridal shower gifts, or even making them for a girl's night out and using the sentiment "Sole Sister" or "Kick Up Your Heels"?  Yeah, wish I had a bridal shower to get ready for...or girls' weekend anyone?

Also ladies, just a reminder we are having a U-Stream at gettingcricky on Friday, June 17th at 9 p.m. Eastern time to show off Kristal's stamps and also a blog hop.  I will have some blog candy too, so please be sure to come and visit us.  I am sure it will be fun getting to know some of us and also to see what we all come up with.

Now create something, anything and come and link up at Getting Cricky!!!
