Shopping and new stuff...

Have I ever told you that I absolutely hate shopping? Hate it with a passion. Today Gabe and I shopped 'til we dropped, almost literally. He was such a little trooper the whole day and his eyes were pretty heavy on the drive home. Hopefully, we don't have to do that again anytime soon.

I haven't done many new projects lately but my June CTS kit came in the mail today and it got me all excited again. The ideas are flowing for some really fun projects. Speaking of projects here are the few that I've been working on this weekend.

The first one is my layout example for the Citrus Tree Studio challenges posted today. I issued the sketch challenge for May and used the remainder of my scraps from the May "County Fair" kit. You may recognize this picture, it's the one that I took of the kids on Easter.

This next layout I did for a challenge over at Kit 'n Kaboodles. For this challenge you needed to "alter" paper flowers. Jules posted 10 different techniques for altering flowers and I chose to ink mine. Kind of cute and so stinkin' easy.

The inked flowers close-up:

And finally, a Mother's Day card for my mom. Hopefully she doesn't check out my blog before tomorrow. This is for the butterflies and bling card challenge over at Dreamer.

Haha I used the challenge for my mum's card too.

Gorgeous creations Tammy. I can't wait to see what you create with the CTS kit.
