On the other hand I'm extremely excited to having some "me" time again to paper craft....I have been a little bit out of my routine on that.

With that said, I'm happy to share my card for the newest INSPIRED BY ALL THE LITTLE THINGS #77 challenge.....

MFT - LIP BALM IDEA...

Happy Tuesday!

We celebrated Miriam's 13th birthday this weekend....I can't believe my baby is a TEENAGER!!! How can this be???

Along with all the craziness I found some time to craft a few "Thank you" gifts for the girls that attended....


I saw these cute MFT Lip Balm creations not too long ago and knew these would come in handy for Miriam's celebration...so of course I ordered the dies and the matching stamp set and had fun crafting these little giveaways.

Wishing you all a great remaining week!
