Day one: Light, Medium, Dark (3 sets of pearls)
Day 2: A step back in time
Day 3: Distressing (her favorite Walnut Stain reinker)

Day 4: Altered item, I took a wooden pencil box, painted and glimmered it, added her favorite crystal rocks, pattern paper, and made a washer necklace (my first!)
Day 5: I want to try.........Paint daubers ( I have never tried these so I hope she likes them!
Day 6: Antique: I went with the pretty TH pad, since she loves pink!
Day 7: Americana: I took a frame and easel from Ikea and altered it.
Day 8: Two sprays (sent two mini spray bottles for her to make her own glimmer mist)
Day 9: Pretty in pink (matching pen and card/envie set)
Day 10, 14, 28: Day 10 was hand over the chocolate, she does not eat chocolate, so I did lots of different embellies in chocolate hues. Day 14 was rainy days so I made her an idea jar. Day 28 was something in a jar so I put new baby boy buttons and stuff in the last one for her new grandson.
Top of the three jars!
Day 11: Surprise: White flowers
Day 12: Say it in pearls
Day 13: Somewhere over the rainbow: rainbow brads and some glue dots/pads I found
Day 15: If it is not worth inking it is not worth doing: she loves Halloween so I sent these three Halloween stamps.
Day 16: Crocheted lace (two sets of lace and flowers)
Day 17: Flowers (pink primas)
Day 18: Layout with all the trimmings, she does not scrap yet so I bought her a cute card kit instead!
Day 19: Lock it up: keys in acrylic and brads
Day 20: Contain it (three containers for pictures and tiny embellies)
Day 21: Sis favorite stamp (Popcorn Bears)
Day 22: A magazine/book: has popcorn bear decoupage stuff in it too!
Day 23: Time: clock and gear TH masks and some stamps with Today etc
Day 24: Canvas: a blank canvas for her to alter!
Day 25: We did a wildcard day and I got her some camping/fishing/hunting embellies
Day 26: Something new for sis to try: magnets to alter and flat backed pearls.
Day 27: Done in pretty papers (another card kit)
Day 29: I would LOVE.................yep I got her the elusive PINK ATG and some tack and peel to do her stamps.

Day 30: A different beat, she loved this idea from another member on the board, so I altered/made it for her! It is an address book for her swap addresses made out of an index binder.

I sure hope she loved it all like she said she did. I had a blast doing this and hope she "gets" the words. I did wrap everything and just wrote the days on it. I dont have a picture of the gorgeous box I put it in, Kim will post that when she can!
