Creative Paper Trade - Color My Week #2

hey there!

i know i haven't done that post i promised about the miracle from the last few weeks... but i will! :D it's going to settle down around here pretty soon--i've been at school setting up my classrooms since i didn't have any time to do that before classes started, but after that's done, i foresee a bit of free time, and i'll be devoting that to creating and my blog!

so, anyway, onto the creations i made yesterday for the Creative Paper Trade!  this time we're focusing on some softer, girly colors, which i surprisingly loved (usually i go for the brightness!)  you can participate in our challenges over there, so please check it out... there's an awesome prize up for grabs (including some of Andrea's handmade embellishments... i LOVE LOVE LOVE them!)

so... here we go--first a little gift bag that i'm going to fill with either some chocolate or other edible goodies to give to the office manager at my school... she's been so helpful in getting me situated!

Andrea made the pink fabric trim, the cute little heart felt pin, and of course, the digital purple heart paper (one of my favorite digital items :D)

and since i know i have some birthdays coming up and some more thank you's to give, i made this card without a sentiment so i could use it whenever the need arose.  lots of layers, some fun seam binding, a glorious felt flower from Andrea again, and then a bitty piece of digital goodness (a tag) tucked under the white flowers... again: hearts :D

this last one features lots of Andrea's goodies... she actually die cut the white banner and sent it along in the package of goodies, so of course i thought it would be perfect for this!  a lovely "cherish" tag is the focal point, some polka dotted digital paper is nestled behind the purple, and then the felt heart/ flower combo... it's the best thing ever!

and there you have it!  loved making every little bit of these... and i hope you enjoy looking!  don't forget to check out the CPT for the challenge details!

thanks for stopping by, xoxo!
