I had ordered a card kit from my friends Krista and Penny over at Sweet Arts Paperie and finally picked up from my mom's house where it had been sent! I couldn't wait to use it and figured it would be perfect for the BBTB's challenge this week to use the dress from the Dreams come true cartridge. I must give a special thakns to my friend DeeDee for sending me the cut!! The flowers are from the Brides collection at M's, the ribbon is Offray, and the pearls are from Marcella K.

One of my co-workers asked me to make some invitations for a Halloween party that she is having and this is what a came up with!! I used some yummy metallic orange paper from The Paper Company. The spider web is a Cuttlebug embossing folder which I heat embossed with a Stamp-n Stuff "Marcasite" powder. The ribbon is from M's...they have the cutest Halloween ribbon now!! And the stamp is from the $1 section heat embossed with the powder "Pearlustre Carnelian". Enjoy and have a Happy Sunday!
Well I have been pretty busy this weekend with crafting/planning/creating!! I have two very important weddings next year and I have been commissioned to make the invitation, favors, and what nots for the events. This card and matching box was for my cousin's bridal shower. We are doing it with an oriental theme and so I found this beautiful paper to make my first sample. Unfortunately we will not be using it for the party but I still wanted to post it!! The paper is from DCWV (Far east Print) I cut the box with a take out box Sizzix die. For other ideas on how to use this box go visit my wonderful DSIL, TeriBeri's blog.

My husband and I went to San Francisco in August for a couple of days. I LOVED everything about that city....One of the "touristy" things we did was rent bikes and cycle across the Golden Gate Bridge to the small town of Sausalito (another super cute town). After sightseeing, we bought some sandwiches and had a picnic in a park overlooking the bay. Now that's the life....:o). Anyhoo, for the BBTB challenge this week we had to use the basket cut from Doodlecharms. I hand cut the bread and added some flower brads to the basket. The title, circle, scallop edges, and flower are from Plantin Schoolbook. Hope you enjoy! To go see all the other AWESOME projects on the BBTB click here!
