Strawberry Surprise

Happy Friday! I'm celebrating with a girls' weekend...heading down to St. Louis for a visit with my bestie! Woohoo!

Since she is so graciously putting me up at her place for the weekend, I thought I'd put together a little hostess gift for her.

It all started with these cute strawberry Post-It notes I found in the Target dollar bin...
Keeping with my berry theme, I threw in some Twizzlers, wild strawberry Crystal Light packets, & some red nail polish (essie's forever yummy).

FYI--got this bag for a steal at Michaels...one of those "damaged" markdowns where someone had taken one out of the package...got 11 bags for less than a buck! Score!
Here's a close-up of my tag...my first time using a doily. I know, a little late to jump on that bandwagon, but you know how it goes--buy it because it's trendy, then it gets buried in your stash. 

I die cut a circle in the center & layered some pink cardstock underneath. Tied it on with some ribbon...couldn't decide on gingham or polka dots, so I used both!

Hoping my friend will like it...& you, too, of course! 

Have an awesome weekend!

Stamps: Strawberry Patch Sentiments (PTI)
Paper: Sweet Blush (PTI)
Ink: Garden Green, Real Red (SU)
Accessories: button (PTI), pearls (Michaels), ribbon (Bazzill, Michaels), doily, kraft bag

I LOVE your doily tag and gift bag! So thoughtful of you! Best to be cautious with these trends, make sure they are going to stick around a bit, hehe!

Have fun on your girls' weekend!
