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!!!
Hugs,

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