It's Their Day

It's impossible to explain the excitement we all felt last week after we submitted our auditions to My Favorite Things' Idol contest. We stalked the forum for DAYS waiting to see Who made it as a finalist--and had loads of fun and made new friends in the process. The judges worked hard and we all knew they had tough decisions to make because ALL of the entries were totally AWESOME!

So, with my submission for this round of the contest, I hope to let the judges know how happy I am to be in the Top Ten list! Our theme for this round is "Celebrate", so since it's better to give than to recieve, I'm giving the judges a virtual day at the spa! Waiting for each of them is a card, soothing music, wine, candlelight, chocolate, and lotions and potions for pampering. Relax! You've earned it!

The stamped image on my card is almost totally paper pieced, the bubbles all have been glittered with a Sakura Stardust glitter pen, and the mirror frame and tub feet were embossed in gold. The tub on the CD sleeve has gold embossed shower head and feet, too, and the Nugget box has a clear acetate sleeve. All other coloring was done with Copic markers (see below for colors used).

Labels were punched and attached to bath salts, lotion, and soap, there's a candle floating in water, wine is poured, music us ready to sooth, rose petals are strewn randomly, and chocolate is close by.
Relax, relax, relax!
