Delightful and Delicious Gift Basket

Hi Everyone!

TGIF on this last Friday of summer vacation! Only two days left for lazy sleep in days. I think the only person in my family that's going to have difficulty with that is Reagan!

Ok, so today I want to share with you the last two pieces of this gift set I have been working on and then show you how I brought it all together with the gift basket. This is the second basket I have done. Some of you may remember the last basket set I did. I will be sending this one to my mom as a gift and as a possible promotional item in her office, as I would very much like to figure out a way to perhaps to start selling them! It's a work in progress that I'm still trying to figure out all the details.
As you can see, I obviously kept the papers, patterns and colors the same throughout the basket and more images from Verve's "Delightful and Delicious" set. I've already shown you the altered notebook, and the simple note card set. Here I have the gift card holder, and the post it note holder. Now, I must tell you that I have looked everywhere (but Staples, which is where I know they are....) for the little mini gel pens that will fit with holder. Believe it or not, there isn't a Staples close to where I live; but I know there is one where my mom lives, so I'll just have her pick up one for me.
I also included a small Ghiradelli chocolate treat box as well; but I forgot to take a picture of it! You can see it in the front of the basket there though, it's the little box that says "Sweet Treats"
As you can see, I took two pictures for you of the basket. One so you could see how I arranged it and then one with it all pretty and wrapped up with the bows.

It's been a few days since I've linked to any challenges; so I wanted to make sure and do that today. Lots of Anything Goes Challenges this time! Anyhow, enjoy your weekend and be sure to check back with me on Monday, as I hope to have some REALLY REALLY good news to share with you!!!
