I am on vacation! WooHoo! Tom and I took a couple days this weekend and left TV and Internet behind and sat out on the porch of our "retreat place." Two beautiful days weather-wise. I was able to get all 65 of my rehearsal dinner favors done. The dinner is this Friday. I found out over the weekend that the restaurant does not have centerpieces for the tables so that's my next project this week. Everything has to be ready by Wednesday when we pick our boys up at the airport and head for the wedding. I have my work cut out for me.
I missed posting my design team card yesterday for the new Outlawz CAS challenge. This was my week off but I thought the challenge sounded so interesting that I wanted to play along. How about a little R & R. You might be thinking rest and relaxation. Well we interpret that a bit differently. Use red and ribbon on your CAS creation.
I have a scrap bag for pieces of ribbon. And I thought what better way to use some of it up by weaving the ribbon pieces together. So I made a background of ribbon. The poinsettia is a pre-colored digi from Doodle Pantry that I fussy cut. And finally I embossed the sentiment from Gina K in gold embossing powder. I really like how this one turned out but I doubt I will be using it for my mass produced Christmas card this year. LOL! That weaving really took some time.
I am entering these challenges:
- Doodle Pantry: use a DP image
- Simply Create Too: keep it simple
- Rudolph Days: anything goes
- Hiding in my Craft Room: any holiday
I have a couple more things to share this week but my time is going to be limited. And I am likely to be missing for a time with the wedding and the following weekend is day camp training. I have to have everything ready for that. So I'll pop in when I can. In the meantime, make it an awesome week and thanks for stopping by!
