It is the 25th of the month which means it is time for the PTI bloghop and this months theme is "Go green". I have been really busy this last month with my 3 kids and trying to get back in a routine with school starting so I made a very quick and simple project this month. I took the bag that PTI packaged the acrylic block I order in and filled it with chocolate and added a fast and simple tag from the 2008 Holiday Tag Collection to finish it off.

I have been busy! I adore the Moxie Fab Blog and I love challenges! This is giftbag I made using the Tags bags and Boxes cart. I then used the new From my Kitchen cart to cut out the timer that I adheared to the front of the bag. The stamped sentiment on the tag is from PTI! I think it turned out rather well, I think I will fill it with chocolate and give it to one of my girlfriends! Thanks for looking and I always love to hear comments!
This is a Bookmark I made for the Moxie Fab Blog. I stamped the couch and pillow, cut them out and adheared them to my bookmark. The Sentiment and couch stamp are both PTI. I inked the edges of my bookmark and then decided to laminate my bookmark for more durible use. I used the yourstory to laminate! When I am not taking care of my kids or in my craftroom I love to curl up on the couch with a good book!

Well I managed to make a quick card for this weeks challenge! I don't know if I like it or not. I used the new Sweethearts cricut cart to make the slider tag and envy card. The stamps are of course Peachykeen. The ribbon I found awhile ago at my LCS.

I just got the new Stampin up sweet treat cups, and the new Cricut Sweethearts cart! I loved the bubblegum machine cut on the sweethearts cart and it works great with the sweet treat cups! I cut the bubblegum machine at 4" and I used some cuttlebug embossing folders on the layers! I love the two tone look on the knob portion to achieve that effect I used coredinations cardstock, dry embossed it and sanded! Both of the stamped sentiments are from PTI. I would love to hear your comments!

I am so excited to have some time to myself but at the same time I want to cry my eyes out because my kids are growing up so fast. Here are a few pictures of the momentus occasion!
