Summer Dreams

Happy Friday!

I'm busy for the next few days, working on wedding items for our son's wedding.
Can't show anything until after the big day, but I'm having so much fun!

Thought I'd take a few minutes to enter a challenge today.
The Shabby Tea Room is hosting a challenge "Summer Dreams", that is sponsored
by Creations by AR.  I thought it was a perfect chance to give a shout-out to the challenge, and
of course, to our very own Adela at Creations by AR!  The template I'm using is
a sweet little picnic basket, that you can find HERE.
Mine is cut entirely by hand!  Love my trusty little scissors!


Hope your weekend is wonderful!  
If you need me, I will be cutting and pasting like a wild woman!  
Got the music on, tapping my feet, singing along (not a pretty sound), 
and have a fun little assembly line in progress.  
Thank goodness for my friend, Shirley, who saved me a trip to the city, 
by having everything I needed from Cardstock to an old light box (like the ones we
used to use with brass stencils).

Happy weekend,
Thanks for stopping by!

This is so pretty. You inspire me to try those svg files even though I don't own a machine that could cut them. Do love fussy cutting though :-)

Love this beautiful box, I couldn't believe I actually have this pattern also. Found it when looking through my files on-line. Just need to find time to try it out. Hugs to you
