This is my take on the sketch:

Oh my gosh! do any of you have any of this yummy paper yet from PTI!! LOVE IT!!! Soooo beautiful!! Such lovely colors!! All paper & stamps are from PTI.... the cute little fence is made with my current fave Martha Stewart punch, The buttons are from SU. I am so loving the color green lately! Maybe it's all the talk lately of Earth day....& isn't this little tree just perfect!
Well that's it for this post! Tomorrow is another day!! Make it a good one!!!

Lauren Meaders first template Challenge

Happy Administrative assistants day!!! And Earth day!!!
I work with 2 sweet gals at my dental office & wanted to create some sort of "appreciation" gift for them for today & lucky for me I have several of Lauren Meaders templates AND she is having a template challenge right now to create something with a template inspired by a bath product & this is what I came up with....personally...I think they turned out just darling!!! (if I do say so myself) ;)

I used the same template for both projects....once you make one you can just crank them out...lickity split!! Wanted the clear card stock to have a little texture so I ran it though my cuttle bug!! LOVE IT!!! for this one I used the script embossing folder...just seemed to go with the mellowness of the warm sugared vanella colors. Here is a bit of a close up of it so maybe you can actually see it.
If you can't see it...take my word for it....looks really cool OR give it a go yourself. For the next one I gave it texture with the swiss dots embossing folder...thought it looked like little dew drops to go perfectly with the "dancing waters" bath product.....I was thinking....wish cuttlebug would come up with a raindrop embossing folder!!!!! THAT would be cool!!! oooohhhhh think of the possibilities!

All of the paper I used is from Papertrey inc. Everything else is from my stash! some of it new from the CK convention.....ooooohhhhhh sooooo much product so little time!!! well gota run & delive my goodies!!!!! have a fantastic, crafty day!!!!!!

Thanks for the visit!!

Vacation & a side job

Wow!!! long time no post!!! Took a little vacation (much needed) with the whole family!! we rented a motor home & went to Country Thunder for 4 days! Had a BLAST!!! I could write a whole 2 page post on just what we did & who we saw...But I will not bore you with all that.

Then when we got home I had to get right to work as I promised a girl I work with that I would make all of her daughters graduation announcements! YIKES!!!! what was I thinking???? I have only done something like that once before & that was for my parents.......So this is what I ended up with: She had 2 different pictures...such a pretty girl huh!!! so I made half like this and..... And the other half like this. Tried to keep it pretty simple & easy to recreate. Then I had to figure out how to box them up & this is what I came up with for that: Luckily....she loved it all!!!!! So now I can cross that off my list & it is to the next. This weekend is the CKC scrap booking convention!! Woot Woot....Sooooooooooooo excited!!! Signed up for a few classes & hope to learn some cool new stuff & of course do a bit of shopping!!!

Well better go clean my craft room (make room for some new CKC stuff)!!!!! :)

Thanks for today's visit!!
