I always get a kick out of
making things for little ones.
I find it amusing because of the battle
I go through with my own lil' turkey
just to keep him amused for a minute or two
while I try and weasle in a crafty moment.
This was no exception.
Yes, all of you out there with tots know
that you'd better just wait until
they've gone to bed to get crafty.
What happens when there's a house full of night owls?
It's nearly midnight before I can get
my grubby little mits on my supplies...
All that aside, I have at long last
completed this project and am ready to share it.
This was really fun to put together,
and I will revisit this template in the future,
now that I know the cuts and folds,
the project will be a breeze.
Lovely breeze, huh?
I have used my wonderful Tina Wenke stamp
that Simon Says Stamp
Lucky Duck-a-fied me with,
coloured with watercolour pencils,
Stickles and Crystal Glaze on the water,
Stickles in the flower centers,
Pearls are Martha Stewart and Liquid Pearls,
DP is Basic Grey, the border was cut
using Fiskars shears, and the ribbon
and grommet are from my stash.
Oh, and let's not forget the wonderful
Inkadinkado Brenda Walton clear set sentiment!!
And here are the challenges that I've played along with:

And this one is a little different.
Simon Says Stamp Blog
has allowed us the opportunity to share with them
projects that we have made using items from their store,
and on September 18th,
they will draw a winner who will win a
$25 shopping spree (shipping included)
and have their work showcased on their blog.
I wanted to take the time to show them
that I LOVE the stamp they gave me
and selected products that can be purchased
in their store to make the project,
some of the items used were purchased there!!
Can't say ALL, truth is, I lose track of
what came from where, but SSS do carry
all of these product lines,
except for the Stephanne Stash,
they don't carry that at the moment, lol.
And just an aside here, OMG, love those charms!!
The above link will take you to it,
you ought to check it out!!
I love the idea of showing your work,
so thanks for the perfect outlet to do it!!
Thanks for your visit.
I am so grateful for my friends and visitors
to my projects, it means a lot to me
that you'd take the time to stop by,
and I truly TRULY appreciate your support!!
Edited: I forgot to tell you what I want to do with this!! What can I say, it was late, lol!! I will be giving this to my cousin when she has her son this October/November (who knows, baby's have their own way of doing things!!) and I will be putting little baby booties and a gift card inside!!
