 I really did not mean to be gone for this long - I can't believe I actually missed a whole week!! But, I was crazy busy with getting ready for the Annual Scrap and Stamp Fest that happened this past Saturday and I am very proud and pleased to say that it went off without a hitch and everyone had a great time!!! I have pics to share with you a little later this week, but today I wanted to share one of the projects from the event.  It is a purse card box which will hold up to six A2 cards depending on your embellishments -this particular one I did four cards with envies and had plenty of room!  I used a lot of fun things to make this box and added lots of texture with my embossing folders! The front of the box you can see the Lattice Square embossing on the Tempting Turquoise center strip - LOVE the way this looks!! And, I just had to add some scallops as well, I just love how they look!
 Here is a picture of the actual cards that fit inside this fun box!  I wanted you to be able to see them all, so I realize there is not a real closeup, but you get the idea *wink*  These cards were so fun and easy to make using the Hostess Level II set called Punched Posies - I just love how each and every stamp in that set has a corresponding punch to match! Sure makes cutting them out a snap and they all look sooooo good together!  And, I used the yummy Island Oasis designer paper from the Summer Mini as well - I just love the bright colors and the summery feel they have! This was a fun kit to put together and the ladies loved it!! I will be sharing more projects over the next few days, so make sure you stop by and check them out!! Now, I am off to work on some projects for ME - don't get to do that too often, lol!!!! Thanks soooo much for stopping by, I love ya for it!
