I am not exactly sure if it is a challenge...but I have challenged myself to do it each month.
So far so good, I may get them done a couple days before month end...but I'm getting them done ;)
If you look at the one Tim has done, then you can see that mine is quite a bit different.
I didn't have anything he had...well except for those ticket stick things that are holding up the flowers.
So lets take a closer look at what I had done.
I didn't have his grass die so I hand cut my own.
I didn't have his metal floral embellishment so I made my own. Actually these came from a very ugly set of earings. They had many of these flower heads on them...and this is why I bought them ;)
Lastly I wanted to hid eggs in the grass. So I covered some paper with some foil from chocolate kisses and then ran them through my embossing folder.
I didn't have the die's that Tim used, so I hand cut the egg out of the center of the cardstock.
You can check out my failed attempts of this HERE.
What I did for the center of the egg, was ink some white cardstock with pink distress ink then adhered the washi/tissue tape on top of it. then popped the egg shape over top of it.
I also didn't have the banner die that Tim used so I just cut a long skinny strip of paper and folded it to look like a banner.
I had made some flowers with the left over foil I had used for the mini eggs.
I just thought I would show you how I work. Scary isn't it, lol.
I really don't like to work in chaos, but no matter how much I try to keep neat and organized, I still make a giant mess.
It is all clean now though.....honestly ;)
One more look at the tag....I don't want you to leave here with the last image you see is of my mess, teehee.
I wanted to cook a turkey today.
Not so much because of the holidays, but because then we have leftovers, and everyone can fend for themselves the rest of the weekend.....yup, I'm not dumb ;)
Well I thought I had bought the turkey that was already stuffed and you cook it from the frozen state.
I was annoyed to see that I didn't.
I was thinking, oh crap now I have to cook something else.
Internet to the rescue...I looked up and you CAN cook a frozen turkey without thawing that sucker out.
I was so happy :) No cooking for me this weekend ;)
So we had Tyler and Blake over and we all enjoyed a nice yummy turkey dinner :)
I chatted with my ladies today, and they still wanted to come over for Friday Night scrapbooking.
I thought with it being a holiday weekend, they would want to stay home...but I guess I am just to much fun to be around as they should be here any minute now.
I hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend and I hope you all had a creative Friday :)
