Today was a nice day....all but this cold which I guess I am sounding way worse but me not hearing so well I had no idea. haha... I still went out with my mom. Found some sweet tops at Ross....and a few good finds at the thrift stores.
I have been working on making some simple goodie purses for my mom's tea party as favors.
Now....for my excitement to my day...
My oldest who is only 17 got his first speeding ticket...you don't want one of them in Florida because we are high priced tickets....so $254 for going 64 in a 45MPH zone...
I guess he needed to learn a lesson....God knows and took care of that...seeing me and his dad have been telling him to not be such a lead foot.
Live and Learn....
Have a sweet Thursday!
Please pass the word about my giveaway....we are soooooooo close twenty followers away.
Thank you to all of you that follow me and have posted my giveaway.

ALSO....THERE IS A POST BELOW WITH MY VINTAGE EGG CREATION....PLEASE EVERYONE JOIN IN THE COOL...NEAT CHALLENGE OVER AT TEE'S. POST BELOW WILL TAKE YOU THERE.
I started with a green plastic egg....and then grabbed some samples that I had of lace...started cutting that in squares...hmmmmm...I wondered how do I attach this...then I grabbed the modge podge...Yeppers it was a sticky mess... Dryed it of course...then inked it with Tim Holtz tea ink pad. Okay...it is looking alright. I have these wonderful hat pins from my mom that are antique...stuck it right in the egg with some lace that I inked as well and some pretty gold ribbon. I grabbed a flower crochet that my sister in law Kathy had made a while back...added some stickles and an antique button. I think it turned out okay...

Pretty happy with the turn out...I used Jewelry pins with grape tops...of course I had the beads as I make jewelry...
Notice one of them has a paper bead that I made. It turned out awesome that the flower showed when I rolled it...that never happens. So this way I can showcase that.
Okay...done rambling...Going to rest! So much sun and fun took the energy right out of me.

First was Target...wowzers they had awesome deals on some scrapbook stuff. So picked me up some papers, a punch, and stickers...Even thank you cards for Presten's graduation. Then I found the magazine I have been wanting since it came out. I actually follow the blog where it originated from called FLEA MARKET STYLE...it is the second one they have made. So tonight you know what I will be doing...curling up and reading it. Also, not only did I find it at Target I also got it for about half off the cover price...which is $9.99 it was like $4.54 or something like that. How cool was that?
So I have started working on this yesterday and finished it today for my project of the day...Enjoying my month long creating....
I cut a square box with my cricut. Used my scoreboard to make the pinches on the sides to give it a different look...then added a top to it...along with a bow and wild orchid flower...
The picture is from my Flower shop CD. I sure hope you like my creation...Going to put some goodies in it...I think a gift card would fit as well. So gave me some ideas. I am sure to make more of these in the future. Simple and cute!
Oh I forgot to mention we went on to more shopping and had a wonderful time...I even went into Goodwill by the area and found some antique ribbons...that are just the best! Brand new...woot... then as I was leaving that section I found a norditrac treadmill...brand new for $40 dollars they just told me that they just put it together...I am sooooo excited this is what I wanted for my anniversary/birthday/mothers day....and I found it...early and cheap! Don't forget brand new....I am over the moon with excitement. The boys found their goods too at their types of stores...so everyone was happy! Have a wonderful rest of the day...dinner time here.

I used a freebie image that I found on the net...and then layered it onto DP and CS and distressed the edges. Don't forget that I inked alot with Chalk in yellow.
I could not find my battery operated tealight...so just for the picture to give you an idea of what it would look like I stuck in a real one...(DO NOT LIGHT A REAL ONE...IT IS PAPER AND PLASTIC) Can you say Fire hazard?
Made this for all that flutter with Getting cricky with KAndrew
You can find the template that a blogger passed onto me...
Go here. Also entered into challenge...yellows, greens, and blossom pinks over at: http://sirstampalotchallenge.blogspot.com/.
I sure hope you like my lantern....I am sure pleased with it.
Took alot of time and of course I swayed from the directions...
It was an oops really...I did the windows side by side instead of every other.
I do love it turned out though.
Make sure if you make one you let me know...would love to see it!
I had a nice day inside today...because yesterday I had an outdoor day and lets just say I am the color (red). Tomorrow is physicals for 3 of the 4 boys...then a bonfire tomorrow evening.
