Spring Flowers

Hey there Bloggers! I hope that you enjoyed your weekend and are all ready for the beginning of a new week. 
It's been another busy week for me. My kids participated in a fundraising event at their school called Ride of the Mustangs. The fundraiser was a 48 hour stationary bike ride to raise money for the Children's Hospital Oncology unit. This was the third annual event and it was as successful as past years... this year the kids raised an amazing $132,000. As a parent I am very proud of all the kids. I have to say the kids were exhausted. 
Saturday we went to the Airdrie Home & Garden Show (which I was not a participant in this year), went to the Roughnecks game, and saw some of Blair's relatives that we hadn't seen in 6 years. Sunday everyone went to Comic Con and I stayed home and did some creating. I will be showing you the projects that I made using April's Paper Pumpkin kit later on in the week.

So today's project is a card that I made because I finally wanted to try out Delicate Details Lace Tape. Another one of those things that I buy but just never seem to get around to using. There are a lot of uses for this product including as a mask for inking or spritzing. I decided to use it as is. I also used some Pink Paislee butterflies that I had on hand and Tea For Two DSP.

My Paper Pumpkin

Hey there bloggers! So I apologize for taking so long to post my creations from the Welcome Kit of Paper Pumpkin. I haven't had much time for creating and my Stamper's Club projects took precedence. so here my Paper Pumpkin kit sat.....

Then, I finally got around to playing with my kit... the first card is the card that you create with the instructions....

And the other three projects are what you create when you think outside of the "red box"

The bottle was created using a recycled Prima flower bottle. I got the idea for using the recycled bottle from the Scrapbooker's Paradise Playing in Paradise Challenge. And voila! 

And I have April's kit to play with now... so stay tuned!!

Hey there Bloggers! Hope you are all doing well and had a good weekend. 
I heard some sad news for the industry last week.... Creative Memories parent company has filed for Chapter 11. This is apparently the second time in five years. It is too bad when scrapbooking companies are unable to sustain themselves. There has also been a merger within the scrapbooking world recently too with Tonic Studios and Purple Cows.
And in other news.... Stampin' Up! will be announcing the 2013 retired list on April 24. So if you don't receive my emails, make sure that you sign up so that you can receive a copy of the list as soon as it is released. And don't forget that these items will sell out very quickly so place your orders immediately.
