Hello friends and a Happy Thursday to ya! It's still warm and sunny here in VA so I'm a happy gal :)--summer is definitely here--yay--my favorite time of year! This is a holiday weekend for most of us here in the States and then the kids only have 3 weeks of school left. And my daughter has an 8th grade pool party, semi-formal dance and then her graduation from middle school--YIKES! That means I'm a mom to a high-schooler! How the heck did that happen, LOL?! I don't feel that old to have a high schooler---seems like just yesterday when I was packing her lunch for the first day of kindergarten--time it does fly, huh? And my baby boy will be in 7th grade, sigh--not too many more years left with them here in the house. This is why even through all the moans and groans I try to carve out as much family time and events as we can--pretty soon they'll be off doing their own thing and living their own lives KWIM?! That's why our 2 week vacay in Hilton Head Island, SC is just the family--NO friends--even though my daughter continues to beg, but I'm firm on that. She can spend the rest of the summer with her pals :) those 2 weeks are just for us!!
-I've got 2 projects to share today---so make sure and scroll all the way down!!
-Only a few more days until the end of the month--I'm still looking for more entries in my Copic Card Challenge!! There will be 3 winners and one of them will be in the magazine "Through the Craftroom Door"--you can find all the details on the main page under "NEWS" at my Color Me Creative Classroom site.
-Today is the last day to enter to enter for that YUMMY BLOG CANDY over at the SCACD store blog HERE! Tomorrow the DT will have a fun Blog Hop featuring all those cute new Victoria Case stamps for ya!
Today is Try It Out Thursday for half of the SCACD DT--and I challenged the DT to create something fun with a tag! You can enter your project over at the store blog HERE if you want to join in on the fun with us! I used a cute Elisabeth Bell for SCACD stamp called "All Grown Up"--isn't she a cutie!!? I created this fun Stand-up Pop-up card (see tutorial here on SCS)--the tag pop's right up! I didn't attach mine to the box like the tutorial says to--I wanted it to pull out entirely so you could use it as a bookmark or write on the back. But I love how the box pops it up and presents it so nicely and then folds flat for mailing! Those are Prima flowers adorning the sentiment!
This is what it looks like from the side--the box allows the center panel (my tag) to stand straight up!
SCACD store blog HERE to see the rest of the DT's fab projects!
Scrappers Floss thru and down (attached with glue dots). Then I stamped & colored a fun fish image from the set and glittered him up with Stickles. This box/card would be perfect for the upcoming Father's Day--the great thing about not attaching these center panels to the box, is that you can pull them out and put a nice note on the back. And the recipient could use it for a book mark as well--lots of ideas for them!
I'll see ya back here tomorrow!
