I didn't tape anything down. I am just playing, the swap that it is for is a Recycle theme. It needs to be 80% recycled. I'm not sure if I love it. I like the concept, I like the simplity, but I have a slight problem with the Monocromatic color scheme. It is something I have never really done before, so I think I'm unsure because of my inexperience with it.

Something so small could make such a big mess.
This is Tabitha fault. I was playing around last night and getting frustrated that I could not produce three concepts for three atc in our Effil Tower swap, so I decided to play with my new valentine's day supplies I picked up yesterday when I went to Micheal's with my grandmother. So I created a couple inchies which lead to more inchies and in total I ended up creating 9 inchies last night. So in total in the last two weeks I have created 15 valentine's day inchies. Addicted for the moment much. lol Pin It Now!

I have been feeling a slight block the last week or so... but that could be due to the fact that I have been creating for a baby shower mentioned in my previous post. So I have been sitting in my craft room the last couple of days playing with a Paris swap but didn't get anywhere I wanted with it. So today I went to Micheal's and picked up some new products to push me in the right direction. I have picked up some valentine's day stuff for some valentine's stuff I want to create, new cool stamps set with an Eiffel tower on it to use in my Eiffel tower/Paris swap and some really cool recipe cards with 50s ladies on them with cool saying to use in a fabulous 50s swap. I didn't want to seem like I copied my besties so left out the saying and used DCWV Mod(?) stack paper with cool retro sayings like "gee whiz" and "Oh, heavens to Betsy". They are not my favorite cards i have done but they came out cute. I'm hoping this is a step in the right direction as far as my block.

Thank you cards
The last couple weeks have been creatively consumed by a friend of mine's baby shower. I am helping her sister plan and create center pieces, invites, thank you cards, and favors. The party isn't for awhile but we wanted to get the creative stuff done before moving on to other things. We have designed and created 80 invitations, 14 centerpiece toppers and we started the thank you cards this past friday. It has been alot of fun creating with the mommy and Auntie to be. Lilly-Jaye (the baby) will have the best baby shower ever and she will know that she is very loved by all involved.
