This is what is going on in my life today...I am getting ready for a big batch of ladies for the first time and driving myself a little bonkers, trying to fit in chairs, clean, decorate, and bake...but it is all going really well. I just needed a silly break.

I won the sentiment stamp at my demo and friend, Carn's, last month!! How fun is that?? Nobody else even put their name in the bucket, so I had pretty good odds of winning. I like to bake and figured I'd use this stamp set, and I have! I am wanting to make an apple pie or apple crisp soon.
Tilda is holding out her prize winning apple pie!! Her secret ingredient...you'll have to wait to find out! One thing I love about coloring my Tilda's is she always has matching socks! In real life, that is my aim, but too often my socks not only do not match my outfit, they don't match each other!
Have a super day!

As much as I like this set, "Like it a Latte" I felt I had exhausted it's use...until I saw this layout. This card is 51/4 inches square, which helped to accomodate all the elements.
The coffee cup and steam were stamped in Tim Holtz Walnut distress ink...then heat embossed. This added some texture and made the image dark enough to show up with my patterned paper.
I have a coffee date tomorrow, it is one of my favorite things. Just the smell when entering a good coffee shop is intoxicating to me~~
Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy your comments.

Good morning! I wanted to share a project with you today that I found while cruising Becca's Blog at Amazing Paper Grace. (view sidebar for link) This is a Mini-Accordian File!! I am excited about this project partly because I love the idea for sending a little gift...think of the possibilities here: little tea bags or apple cider packets, tiny prima embellishments, or even as a way to send images to a friend and make them a gift!! Secondly, this project's tutorial by Valerie Strangle seen here: Valerie's Blog that I just couldn't mess up! The only thing I changed about this project was I used my Martha Stewart lacy flower punch on the top of each envelope before assembling. That's right, this project uses business sized envelopes cut in half so a portion of the cutting/measuring is already done for you! That brought the height of the pocket down a little bit, but it added a lot in design interest!
