Freestyle Fridays - Sorry It's Been So Long!!

I was only suppose to be gone two weeks!  Three days after I got back from summer vacation in August from the beautiful and wine filled Okanagan Valley in B.C.,  I felt all this tingling up and down my left side, from fingers to shoulder.  Fearing the worse (heart attack) it ended up being Carpal Tunnel preventing me from doing a lot of typing among other things.  It is much better now with the help of a custom made brace.  What a relief this has brought and now have use of my thumb, index and middle finger.  The other two are mending but slowly. 
I've been busy doing a wedding (invitations, menus, seating places, programs...) which has taken up most of my spare time.  We did a little shower for the bride and below is a bag that held a gift certificate for her to have  manicure/spa treatment the day before the wedding.

Her colors were Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride for which I was thankful that I had "supplied up" before it retired.  Sorry the pic is not so great.  The bride and sentiment are embossed.  From my stash I had the perfect pink pearls to match.  Plenty of die cuts on here and the image from Flowering Flourishes was stamped several times on Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Pretty simple really thanks to the Big Shot.
********REGINA'S MISSION********
You must be ready for a challenge right about now Regina!  Your mission this week will be to create using Pink since I rarely see you using this color.  And, as an added bonus, do plenty of layers.
See Ya Next Week!

I just love this gift bag that you created for the wedding gift for your friend. It is so feminine and lovely that I am sure the bride has fallen in love with it. You are one very creative girl Julie. Can't wait to see what you create next time. Hugs "J"

Welcome back, Julie!!! Your bag turned out sooooooo pretty, and I'm sure the bride appreciated the gift of pampering just before the wedding. You're so thoughtful!
