Every time I use

gluedots, I think of Carol. (oh girl, you know why!!) For the rest of you I'll give you a little hint (or the whole story).
Carol was at one of my card classes (she's my biggest fan, bless her heart ;) ) and gave me supreme sh!t for not riping the extra protective paper off where I had already used the dots. Okay, so it was more like she was in total shock that I would leave the 'tail' just hanging there and not keep it neat. But, whatever, every time I reach for my gluedots I think of Carol and smile. (AND IMMEDIATELY RIP THE EXTRA PIECE OFF ) :) You know I love ya girl!!
Anyhoo, enough harrassing. I'm here to share what's been keeping me so darn busy these past few days. Other than a sick family that is.
I actually made 2 of these stationary boxes, one for Colby's teacher and the other for my 6 year penpal. (hope she's not reading this) I used Baja Breeze and Old Olive as my main colors to coordinate with the Green Tea pattern paper. Stamp sets I used were Essence of Love (retired), Pocket Silhouettes, and Fresh Cuts.
The inside has 4 standard size cards, 4 3x3 cards, envelopes, 4 tags, notepad, mailing stamps and a pen. I didn't take individual photos, do you want me to? I just did a group shot, was a little lazy.
I really hope they like them as it took me forever to make these. I have to figure out how to package the one for my penpal so the postal employees don't destroy it before she gets it.
Until next post....
