NSD pics

Ok, on to National Scrapbook Day. I mentioned earlier that I had a crop at my house.

We scrapped. We ate. We talked. We laughed. We played a few games. We ate some more. Good times were had by all! I had a lot of fun. Thanks for coming over guys!!

Strawberry Cheesecake trifle anyone???
(this recipe was in the latest Kraft foods mag, super yummy and super easy)

notice there's more pudding/cool whip & cake than fruit? yeah, that wasn't an accident ;)

I'll share a few of my creations later but for now I'll share a few of the goodies that I gave to the girls. {BTW, those of you that didn't come, we missed you! coughcoughSusanStaceycoughcough}

Anyway, I put together these little gift buckets for the girls
A handmade card, post-it note holder & a couple gift tags. The buckets came from the dollar section at Target, tags from Staples.

I used the Forest Friends stamp set that's new in the Stampin' Up! mini-catalog. *Love* that set. How could you not love those cute little animals?? They remind me of Bambi & Thumper :)

Here's a closer look at the post-it note holder

Got the idea on Chic 'n Scratch's blog. I used kraft cardstock and embossed it with the Cuttlebug Stylized flowers embossing folder. I think I'm addicted to kraft cardstock. I may need an intervention soon.

but I digress...

Another gift

Carol won this when we played bingo :)

I found the pot (again) in the Target dollar section, added some white acrylic paint to give some texture and then decorated with flowers, a cute brad and a butterfly!

And as my son would say "Woila, there you go!"

Simple but cute gifts. And sometimes simple is good. I'm planning on making similar gift buckets for the end-of-year teacher gifts. My kids have less than 3 weeks of school left so I need to get moving on those!

I hope that satisfied the curiosity of my nosy blog stalker people! hehe (and you know who you are!)
