Happy Monday everyone!!! We had a great weekend. A really HOT weekend but it was fun. Just had to run into town for a few things and then back home to relax and enjoy the weekend.
Saturday night we took the boys to the soccer field (where they play T-ball) and let my oldest play some T-ball, get him used to hitting off a "T" and then throwing the ball. It was a really fun family activity and I am so glad that we took the time to do it.
Today, and the rest of the week, I have a challenge to share with you. This one, today, is for the Whimsy stamps challenge blog. This is a new blog they started and the first challenge they are doing. It is called Occasion Celebration. You are to make a card or other project for a special occasion or a celebration.
I decided to use the newest of Lauren's My Timeless Templates box template to make a goody bag to give out at a birthday party (or other party).
I love how it turned out and because of it I had an excuse to buy something I have been putting off, Staz-on ink. I know, I can be so behind of things but I had no reason to buy it so I didn't. This time I wanted to do something special (and I had a coupon) so I went ahead with my idea to make a window and use vellum to stamp my froggie on.
Here are the deets and be sure to check out the challenge. Like I said, I have many more challenges to do this week and might have a day or so with 2 posts so keep checking in :)
paper: PTI kraft, Marcella K, PTI vellum
ink: staz-on jet black
stamps: Whimsy frog, PTI polka dot basics
ribbon is from Michaels, buttons are from making memories (chloe's closet), the frog is colored using kho-i-noor (another new buy thanks to a coupon), the flower is making memories, and the thread is from Michael's used for jewelry, I also used my crop-a-dile and eyelets to make a whole for the ribbon which holds the top down.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
