Even though I feel like it should be Friday this week has just flown by! It's always that way at this time in the school year. End of year class trips, last minute concerts and exams looming near, makes for out of the ordinary days that seem to pass as a blur for this school custodian. I'll be glad when all the busyness slows down during summer holidays.
Over at Meljen's Designs they want to see your projects for Dad (or maybe that special guy in your life). Check out the great projects their DTs came up with right here, http://meljensdesignsdt.blogspot.ca/2012/06/challenge-114-dad.html .
For my project I chose to do an altered gift bag and tag. The sweet image is one of Melissa's, in fact I think it was a freebie. Check out her site, I'm sure you will find it there, who knows it might even still be free!
The DPs are by Simple Stories, "Generations". (kinda fitting for Father's Day). I tried adding some nice stitching to the tag but it went kinda "haywire", so I changed it into "messy" stitching and distressed all the edges of the tag to make it look like I planned it that way! What can I say...I was in a rush and didn't want to throw it away and start all over again. I think it added to the masculine look of this project as well.
Well, that's it for today. Hope you'll make a project for the Meljen's challenge...I'll be checking them out to see what you came up with and getting some great inspiration I'm sure.
(ps) I just stumbled upon this awesome blog that is offering somw wonderful candy - make sure you check it out!
