*friends make life blossom* - AP Out of the Box Challenge

Elena is hosting this week's A*Muse*A*Palooza Challenge. It's called Out of the Box... and it's all about looking at your stamps in a fresh new way. I took the shower gifts stamp, which is an antique bathtub full of little presents that's normally used for baby or bridal shower cards, and turned it into a funky garden tub brimming over with sweet little flowers! I used the lacy oval stamp to create a fancy rug for under the tub, and it worked out to be the perfect spot for my sentiment.

Thanks so much to all of you who were so sweet and left such nice comments about my blog's new look. Sara has an incredible eye for detail, and I'm delighted with how everything turned out! Did you notice my new watermark? Sara did that, too!

I hope you find some time to join in this week's A*Muse*A*Palooza festivities. Be sure to play along for a chance to win a fabulous prize from A Muse!

Becky - do you see may bathtubs in gardens? I've seen tubs and even toilets used as planters across the south. I love this!
