Happy Thursday, race fans!
Today's paper project was created for the Stampin' Royalty challenge, SR#5, "Anything but a Card," AND for the Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge, "Around the House," to create a project using a box top or any part of a cardboard box.
For all of the Stampin' Royalty challenge deets, clicky HERE. For the Everything But the Kitchen Sink box toppy-type deets, clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of my project, clicky THERE on the photo.
Since the sponsor of the current EBTKS challenge is Kelleigh Ratzlaff, I thought it fitting to use one of Kelleigh's fun templates in my project. I chose Kelleigh's "Candy Dispenser Template," and created clipping masks using digital papers from Miss Cutie Pie.
Since I love me some sugar-free Fudgsicles, and always have a box or three in the freezer, I used a circle die to cut out the "Sugar Free" sentiment from a Fudgsicle box. (Note to self: Eat all the Fudgsicles immediately as the packaging is now seriously compromised.)
As advertised, I filled my Candy Dispenser with sugar-free almonds. Boring, but very heart-healthy. For the 4-1-1- on the rest of the 100% sugar-free product I used in the project, check out the supply list below.
Soooooooooooooo, Wednesday evening Sheila and I ... together with our respective DH's, went to a 50th Anniversary Tea party. Oh, yeah, need I tell you how much the guys did not love this?!?
Grace and Harold are the sweetest couple and a lot of fun to hang with, but Sheila and I really get a charge outta Grace. She's a pistol: she swears like a sailor ... can out-dance, out-drink, out-craft, and out-last any of us ... at anything. She also happens to be hysterically funny. We just love her.
All three of us disagree as to where we all met: Sheila says at Weight Loss class, I say at the World Fitness Park the day the 'gator chased us, and Grace ... well, Grace says we picked her up in Michaels. To be honest, that does sound like something we'd do ...
"So, 50 years! I can't even imagine!" Sheila kinda-sorta congratulated Grace.
"I can't believe it myself! It's a long, long time." Grace responded.
Then she smiled and said, "You know, I just thought of something: if I'd killed Harold the first time I felt like it, I'd be out of jail by now."
Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me ... you da bestest!
Oh! And for those of you in the Great White North, the first ginormous flock of migrating robins landed in my yard today ... right on schedule! If history proves, you'll be seeing your first robin in six weeks. From today. Exactly. Go mark your calendar. You'll see ...
