Scrapoholic Design Team Monday!

Happy Monday everyone.  My kids start school tomorrow, today is their last day to sleep in.  I'm ready to be rid of the stinkin' hot temperatures we've had, but not ready for summer to end quite yet.  I actually got to float in the pool for a little bit today and the water was quite refreshing instead of feeling like leftover bathwater.  I'm not sure if we've broken the record of 50 days over 100 degrees yet, but I'm relatively sure it will happen this week if it hasn't already.

Now for my design team project from Jill, The Scrapoholic's SVG/MTC files.  She created some awesome "bling" template files.  They are great, but really made me realize how much I'd like to get something other than a Cricut to cut them with.  The dang thing makes ovals instead of circles!  Anyway, enough about that,  and on to my project.

I made a lantern using SVG Attic's Summer Lantern collection and blinged it out with the iRock.  I did put a little battery operated tealight in it, but you can't really see it in this picture.  The antique high chair its sitting on was used by my Dad and Uncle when they were small.  I'm sure my sister and I also used it. 


Here's a close up of the bling.  These are the smallest rhinestones in the clear pack by iRock.  It actually took almost two of them to do all four sides.  Thank heavens for Michael's 40% off coupons!

I hope everyone has a great week!

The Scrapoholic Design Team Monday

Its another Design Team Monday for The Scrapoholic

Before I get into my project, I just want to say how thankful I am for the cooler temperatures and rain we had here in Oklahoma today.  It has been miserably hot and dry for most of the summer now, so today's weather was a nice reprieve.  How sad is it that I'm looking forward to temperatures closer to 100 than 110 in the upcoming week?! 

For my project I created a paperbag mini album with Jill's Palm Trees Collection. 

I'm not sure what I'll do with it yet, so I left the inside kind of bare.




I made extra little pockets with the flaps that are actually the bottom of the bags.

I'll probably add some lined cardstock to the little flaps for journaling and dress the whole thing up a bit more.

I did get my niece's wedding invitations and RSVP cards finished and ready for her to pick up today.  I was excited she let me do them for her, but I'm even more excited to be finished with them so she can pick them up now!  I'll post them another day.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
