LCOM Card Challenge - Die Cuts!

This week over at LCOM the card team has another fabulous challenge for you!!!  This week you need to dust off those punches and die cutting machines!!!  It is all about using die cuts and punches!!  On my card I used a pre-made die cut from the pink paislee queen bee line and then punched a butterfly out using coordinating paper.  The design for this card is a great way to use up scraps for a coordinating line of paper!  
Products used::
PP, die cut and ruffled ribbon - Pink Paislee Queen Bee

  A couple of weeks ago I was in the final 8 for The Studio design team.  I was not selected for the team but felt so honoured to be part of the final 8.  Tip:  to help make your own embellishments on a LO use some of your PP.  Here I cut out flowers from the sheets of PP to use as my flower and vine embellishments.  Here is the LO I created for this, it had to be one of the bravest things you have ever done.  For me that was auditioning for so you think you can dance and being rejected.  It was a let down but I was glad I was brave enough to do it!
Products used:
PP, trim & sticker - Pink Paislee Queen Bee Line
Pearl Swirl - Zva Creative
 Individual pearls - Kaiser craft

The most amazing boots ever and a RAK!!!!

On Sunday, I went down to visit my parents.  They live right on the boarder of maine so we went shopping in Calais, ME.  We went to wal-mart and Mardens.  I just love mardens so many great deals to be had!!  Well I found these awesome Kelsi Dagger boots!!!  I instantly fell in love with them!!  I think part of it has to be the huge flower on the side!!!  It reminded me of the fabulous flowers Prima sells.
