Party Favors

Hello!! Happy Memorial Day to my US friends! It has been beautiful here. Unfortunately, I was in the sun yesterday and had no idea how bad my shoulders were burning and did I pay for it last night. I couldn't sleep and today I can't stand to be in the sun as it actually hurts! Lesson learned, higher SPF sunscreen!

My cousin asked me to make her daughters party favors for her little daycare party. I designed the tags myself and there's also little thank you tags that she is going to put onto little cookie bags as well. I think they all turned out really cute!

The 'nutrition' labels are so cute and can be made to suit which is perfect! Thanks for stopping by!

Lasting Memories

I have totally been slacking with my Lasting Memories challenges and I apologize, but I just don't seem to have the creative juices flowing these days where paper is concerned. BUT that is all about to change as hubby told me if I get my room cleaned out, border down and ready to fill the holes etc - get my paint - he'll give it a facelift for me!! So now I am super excited as I'll have a proper craftroom with shelves, organizers etc. Right now there's tons of books, laundry baskets of photo's .. it's to much and very overwhelming. So I'm purging as I go through it. I'll be sure to take before and after pics! I think I may even change my blog up a bit to allow it to be more 'me' and not just my crafting side. I have a photography blog and I think if I tie everything into one, it'll be easier for me to keep up with and it's all about who I am as a person. All in due time!! Speaking of Lasting Memories, we've made some changes and our challenges run for the entire month now. We still go weekly, but they all close the same time. We have a $20 gift card up from Lacy Sunshine this month!! If you're a scrapbooker, pop on over and check us out!! This weeks challenge is a sketch and if you love sketches, you'll love this one! Hope to see you at LM!

I forgot to post my creation for yesterdays challenge at Digitally Sweet which is to use yellow, blue and white. I love digital for the simple reason that if you make a mistake, you can change it! I had originally done this for the wrong challenge and was able to go in and just change all the colors! Phew!! We're being sponsored by Bugaboo this week and I chose "Isabella" for my niece, Isabella's birthday page!
