Template Challenge

It's funny how life works. I've been thinking lately it would be nice to make boxes to store my cards. Then today I saw this blog with a template challenge. I went to and downloaded a template that I thought would work well with most of the cards that I make. This challenge originated from Lauren Mead's blog This is only the second time I've tried a challenge, and it just so happens that once again it goes back to Lauren. She sure has some great ideas!
Last week while my children were at VBS, I spent some of the time just playing with my stamps and inks and added a Stickle here and a Stickle there and I added with my gel pen a few blue dots here and there to and I came up with some really cute designed paper that I like. I have been thinking about how I might use this paper and then today this challenge came up and I thought I would try it out with my own designed paper. And here it is, my first non-card paper creation:

Products used were SU stamp set, SU paper, choc. chip and whisper white. I used choc. chip and pink passion inks. Stickles were placed in the middle of each stamp image. Blue dots were made using a gel pen. I hope you enjoy it!

I have been trying to keep the children busy so far with swimming, playdates, basketball camp and a visit to a museum. With all of the activities my hobbies are taking a back of a bus backseat. However, I do have some ideas and as soon as I can get them down on paper, I will once again be showing them to you. Also, coming soon will be my Christmas cards. I have seen some of the new SU colors and am very excited about all the fun projects. Thank you for visiting.
