This is what I ended up doing with those two milk bottles I got while I was at my BFF Tracy's in PA. They look cute eh with the big buttons in them? You know I almost didn't get the bottles, I carried them all around the store then I was like no I am not gonna get them. Then Tracy was like "you could put a candle in them" and I think she said I could store stuff in them too. So then I was like what the heck I'll take em, and I love them and wish I had more. Well I do have about 5 other milk bottles, they were my Poppa's but I have them in the kitchen on a shelf so I don't want to mess with them, they are just to look at.
So we had a big wind storm tonight, blew dust everywhere, I can smell the dust in the house even…ugh! I can't stand the smell of dust and dirt. It is not as bad as the crazy weather we had here when I was in PA. Did you know that while I was gone Flagstaff had 8 tornadoes? That is 8 too many. Not that any State wants tornadoes but AZ is totally not set up for them, we don't have basements, and basically most of our houses are put together with chicken wire, styrofoam and stucco.
I have my Love Letter DSP and Chunky Frame class tomorrow, here is the card they are going to do. Does it look familiar? ha! It should, it is basically the same card I showed yesterday, just different DSP and I did the button differently.
Stamp Set: Jolly Old Saint Nick
Paper: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Watercolor paper, Love Letter DSP
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette, Poppy Parade, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand
Misc: Deck the Halls Big Designer Buttons, Cherry Cobbler Seam binding, Perfect Polka dot embossing foler, Scallop border punch, antique brad.
Looks cool with the antique brad in it eh? Doesn't even look like the same button. It's funny when I look at things after I take the picture, cause it is like your eyes will see something you didn't notice before, sometimes it's a crooked glue job, or you will miss a spot when you colored, and this one I think I wish I had of moved the button over a bit.
Well I better sign off for now and get back to setting up my room. Jeff had the day off so we played hookie and went to lunch at The Deli and they were so busy!
Have an awesome Saturday, and thanks for stopping in!

Hi Di, I know what you mean about looking over your project after you've completed it. Gee-so-petes girl, no one's gonna notice that button but you. We are our own worst critics 🙂 My nephews live in Arizona near where one of the tornados went over. We checked on them to make sure they were okay. They were, but he told me that he thought he left all the bad weather back in Michigan. Not so though, because our weather up here has been wonderful. Have a great and creative weekend. Look forward to your posts.

I wouldn't have noticed the button and I think it is just fine. The whole set up looks great. I am sure everone will do the appropriate oohs and ahhs. DH and I are going to downtown St. Louis to a casino today and spending two nights. Since I don't do a lot of gambling (read only $25 on the slots) I am going to bring a few stamps, inkpads and some paper to get ready for my first workshop. I am a crazy dedicated SU person aren't I? I hope you had a ball today at your workshop.
