We love to go on this weekend.. it is the weekend of the street fair.. but I have heard the tulips arent popped yet.. mine sure arent.. they are just sprouts.. so we shall see!!
Ok a few things to share with ya today!! :) Lets start here! I got my sweet girls birthday invites done and MAILED! YEAH! (Kimmie if your reading this... act surpirsed when you get the mail tomorrow! LOL!!) She wanted to do Littlest Pet Shop for a theme.. so I went online and found a cute doggy image.. and colored it.. On a side note Justin said mom did you color that yourself.. I guess he thought I couldnt color!! hee hee! Here is what I started with (well after I colored it! LOL!)....
and here is her invite....
I always make them matching return addy labels.. sorry a bit blurry on this photo but you get the idea! :)
Today I made THIS template by Lauren Meader Oh how I LOVE her templates... I know you already know that dont ya!! HA HA!!
Here is my version.. I made a few boo-boos.. BUT it is for me and I think as long as I dont say a word about them.. no one will notice... why are we always so hard on our creations??!! anyway.. I was so happy with it... All CS, Ink, and Ribbon from PTI
Ok are ya still with me! I am not done yet!! hee hee! Since I just found PTI this year like end of Jan... I have been having a GREAT time looking back at the DTS blogs.. somedays I let myself pick a previous month and just look at my leisure! (lets not tell Steve that! LOL!) Well Lauren had shared this book ... Last summer I think.. Called Paper Garden Summer Blooms WELL.. you know how I ADORE anything Lauren shares.. I set out to hunt this book down... first stop Amazon.. they didnt have that book BUT they had THIS book for only $10 by the same author! YEAH!! so guess what arrived on my door step yesterday! YEP!! The book!
Doesnt it look FUN!! Now it calls for alot of different punches...well that is where saving 10 years of punches comes in handy! HA HA! I did see right off at least THREE I will need.. but I have alot of them! so gonna HOPEFULLY make up a flower or 2 today! I will share when I go! and you know I will probably end up buying the other book! LOL!! I gotta try mine first and see how hard the flowers are.. all I know is they TOTALLY look real... soooo PRETTY!!
Ok so if you have made it this far THANKS! It was a long winded post today!! Oh and one last thing... sigh.. I joined a group at facebook for my 25 year reunion in 2 years.. WHERE did the time go??
Anyway! THANKS for stopping by! Have a GREAT day!! Hopefully I will be back with some flowers to share!!!
