{get "whale" soon} TPV

This week's challenge over at The Paper Variety is about sending some love to someone who's under the weather.  It's a "Get Well Soon" challenge! 

I was originally going to make a card, but I had the "whale" idea in my head.  The only whale I had was this huge sticker so I went with a bag (as did my buddy, Patti-both of us unaware of what the other was doing!  Isn't her bag adorable?)

 Here's mine:  Get Whale Soon!

There is just enough room in that bag for some cold medicine, Advil and some tissues.  Combine that with a couple scrappy mags and some goodies and I think it would make a fellow scrapper forget she was sick!  I used some stickers and paper from Reminisce and paper from Echo Park and, of course, some Thickers and a couple different border punches.

This week's prize is sponsored by Dana, who happens to be a Close To My Heart Demonstrator. One lucky winner will receive a beautiful Sophia Kit! Arent the colors delightful?

You have until noon EST, Tuesday, March 15th to get your "Get Well" paper project (card, layout, altered project) linked up to the blog.  If you would like a chance to be in our Submission Spotlight, link it up before noon on Sunday.  It's that easy!  I cant wait to see all of your projects!

Happy Wednesday, friends!
