"XOX" Altered Box by Cheryl Nelson

OK....SERIOUSLY....You've GOT to LOOOOVE a kit where even the packaging is GORGEOUS!
Such was the case with the Floribunda kit! As soon as I unpacked it and saw the fabulous packaging that chipboard alphabet letters came in, I knew I wanted to shoosh it up with a few of the other GORGEOUS items in the kit to make a little spa package for my daughter. My daughter has spent the last year and a half as a missionary for our church in Paraguay. There have been many times she has been without running water and so I thought she would appreciate a little bit of loveliness. Inside I included a chocolate bar (how can you pampered without a little chocolate) that I wrapped in more Floribunda kit goodies, a relaxation mask, and some wonderful smelling bath treats:

Don't you think the colors in this kit just say luxury...pampering...lovely spa-like retreat?

I hope your day includes a little pampering! Hugs, Cheryl

Kirsty's Note -
That is a such an elegant package, I am sure your lovely daughter would love it!
