Happy Tuesday!

I'm getting happier as the week goes by. Our dear friend from California, Joyce, will be here Thursday. Each year she's been kind enough to come visit us. And the time seems to go by so fast. This year she will be with us for 6 weeks! How cool is that? And even though it's a long time it will go by so fast I'm sure.....

This will be a short post for today, maybe.... I've got to finish a project on my desk and I'm anxious to get back to it.

The sneek peek from yesterday, remember? Well this is what I made. I love the Wednesday challenges on SCS. That community is one great place to be a part of!

Well the challenge last week was to make this backpack. At first because it shows so many steps I was a little worried. But it actually is so simple. If you can make a milk carton you can make this. They are kind of along the same lines. Anyway, here is the tutorial if you'd like to try one yourself. I used Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel cs for the backpack. I stamped the flowers all over the cs before scoring and putting it together. I don't remember the name of the stamp, but it was a large roller from SU! I stamped it with Chocolate Chip ink. A few eyelets, some ribbon, some rub on's and I was done. I gave it to Danielle and she looked at me like Mom's done it again. I have so many little boxes, bags and creations around here I have no idea what to do with them all!

The next thing I want to show you is what I made for the May Challenge over at PCP. This month I put up the challenge on the BIA group I belong to. If anyone is interested, go to PCP and join up with the Bind It All group and you can play. I love my BIA!! I'm always looking at things different to see if I can do something with my machine.

Anyway, the challenge is to make a book in the shape of a flower. Well, mine is a flower and a pot, but same thing....

I used some of that thin chipboard that hubby brought home and cut it out with my Cricut. Then I covered it with some DP and Mod Podge, and let it sit for a while. The flower is cut from the Accent Essentials cart (thanks Anne for letting me borrow it!!) and the flower pot and the buggies are all cut from Walk in my Garden. I stamped the inside pages with my TAC set A Wittle Bug. So, what do you think? You up for the challenge? The winner is getting 2 packages of O Wires from me. Stop on over here and sign up....

Well, so much for a short post... I will be back tomorrow to show you some more!
Have a great day!
Hugs, Joani
