If you go down to the woods today....



.... you'll probably find me in my tipee LOL . This is such a busy time of year, as some of you will know. With concerts, sports day, parties and making lots of goodies for the Teachers and the assistants. This little basket is for one of the teachers at my son's school and when given it will be filled with coordinating smellies, any will do as long as they either red or cream to match, of course LOL ;D

It is such a happy coincidence that my very good friends, the lovely Steph & Kate have a challenge over on their blog to make a project with Lauren Meader's templates, which luckily I have by making my picnic basket from her template here.

Have a great weekend & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up! - Card stock: real red and very vanilla, ribbon: old olive. Non SU - green tea leaves collection paper, new leaf vintage buttons and pure poppy saddle stitch ribbon from PTI.

Great basket too, I may just have to sucumb to this one !! It's a good job the post is sooo high or else I would be seriously buying ALL the pti stamp sets, (I think hubby is probably glad it is) mind you I just got the Canadian SU catty (I think it is the same as US?) and well, I just NEED it all too! I am feeling a second job coming if I want it all! lol! Sit down, I will just have to save and wait, don't really want another job! Have a great weekend,
Hugs S.J. xx
