I'm back--Hopefully for a While

School's out for summer! I am so relieved and happy that we are all (well, except Mike) officially on summer vacation. Maybe now I can get some scrapping done :) Here's a few projects I've completed in recent weeks (months).

This first one was a card for Austin's teacher, who is retiring. Love this new stamp set and the Moon Doggie papers from Close To My Heart--too fun! The card design is from Jeanette's new book, Wishes.

These were candy bars I decorated for Teacher Appreciation Week a while back. I also slipped Starbuck's cards in the back sleeve. Emporium Creative Basics papers, "t" solo set, and SU scallop punch.

I made this cupcake gift card holder for my sister's birthday. I had been wanting to try one of these ever since I first saw Tresa's. Her tutorial was fun and easy to follow, although the process is rather involved. I like how it turned out, but I would definitely change some things next time--like using the right size foam ball (mine was 4" instead of 3", and it's huge!). I used Emporium papers and lots of ribbon, flowers, and bling.
I'm hoping for lots more artwork soon. As soon as I get my house in order, I can start thinking about that. We have my dad and grandparents coming next week for a visit and some summer fun.
