Four Hour Project

I am so glad to be back where I have a little time I can carve out to create. Today I straightened up my office. Of course, once I got it clean I had to mess it up again! I decided to start om teacher projects. I am totally casing the jumbo clothes pin from the Stampin' Up F/W Idea Book!

For some reason I really stink lately at taking pictures. They all turn out blurry! I think it's time for a new camera! LOL

I don't have the teacher set, so I used the elephant from that Valentine set that was out a while back...Paper is Summer Picnic, ribbon is Real Red 5/8" grossgrain...

So here is where my quick project turned into a FOUR hour fiasco! I had about an inch and a half of red ribbon left. I decided that instead of tossing it I was going to incorporate it into a really quick card. Well, four hours later I had a card---and didn't even use the ribbon! This must be why it takes me so long to get scrapbook pages done...

It's not a bad card per se, but I don't think it was worth four hours! Summer picnic is there again, plus die cut blossoms and striped grossgrain ribbon. I also beaded some sticky strip at the bottom and in the center of the flower. The charm letters have been colored in with a gel pen.

Enjoy! And may your creative adventures accomplish more in four hours than mine did!!!

Okay...the clip is cute and the card is adorable! Nice to see what you were working on as I yammered in your ear!

This is so adorable!! I love the colors and the elephant...and the "don't forget" sentiment is just perfect for this project.
