Sweetie Pie

February Freehand Scraps Gallery is live today right HERE. You can see what each of us created with pretty papers from Pink Paislee, Crate Paper, Fancy Pants and fun embellishments including 2 alphabets, flowers, rub ons, clear die cuts, glitter die cut, sequins, chipboard pieces. This kit is packed with embellishments! The guest designer this month is the wonderful Emily Spahn, come check out February's kit "SWEETIE PIE" HERE.
For the little butterflies here, I punched the Pink Paislee packaging that came with the alphas. I used my trusty Martha Stewart butterfly punch. That gorgeous felt flower came with the kit!
Shhh, he doesn't know this is on the blog....a very rare photo of my husband...we were in Bath and he was very very cold all the time, that is what I remember. I also remember yearning to look at antiques, I think I made it into one store.
I love England, would love to live there for a few years. When I was in college, I was hired to lifeguard and teach swim lessons at a summer camp in the Poconos. The camp recruited athletes and instructors from all over the world and I was lucky enough to have the sweetest track instructor in the cabin next to mine. Allison and I have been close friends ever since. One problem, she is from England. Sooo, we see each other when we can, our last visit was a fun meet up in New York City....only a 7 hour plane ride for her and 5 for me. I have an amazing story to tell you about that trip....later. What's my point? None really....we were in Bath with Allison.
I used the rub ons on both corners of this photo. I love the rub ons in this kit, I have plenty left to use on other projects.


From Lily's dance class last summer, she wouldn't let me be more than 3 feet away from her....so i took the class too.
I made the red rose with the beautiful velvet ribbon included in the kit.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a lovely week... Are you in blizzard territory like my friend Lexi? Stay safe and warm.
