Did you see my new blinkies?!?!?

I have a TWO new blinkies on my sidebar!


and also a brand new DESIGN TEAM MEMBER for:

Jennifer at Stamps & Smiles asked me to be on the team a couple of weeks ago and of course I said YES!!! I love Project Tuesday and the great items I get to create! I have linked up all the other Design Team members as well. Their links are right under the blinkie.

Katy over at ScrapSchemes emailed me not 3 days later asking me to join the Schemers over at ScrapSchemes. They have great inspirational pieces over there, so again I said YES! Every other Thursday they have a new inspirational piece, so you have time to get in on this week's inspiration, so be sure to pay them a visit!

I am soooo excited to be a part of both teams!! This week, however, I am still a participant. Next week will be my first official DT Assignment for both. In honor of this, I made one piece to incorporate both my new teams.

On Project Tuesday, the project is a Peek-A-Boo Treat Holder. It was very easy to make. I actually made the ribbon go all the way around mine in order for the bow to hold it shut. Obviously, you probably wouldn't want to use this much ribbon if you were making tons of them, but for a couple it's great!

If you follow THIS LINK to the ScrapSchemes blog, you will see the inspiration. I was inspired by the beautiful bright colors and of course the daisies - which happen to be my favorite flower!

This is the outside. The For You...sentiment is from Stamps & Smiles (Of course!). I just blinged it up a little bit and you have a little treat to give for just about any occasion!

Here's a peek at when it's first opened. I used my SU Scalloped Circle punch to cut out the "daisy" and then a circle Nestibility to cut through the two layers. Mine is a little larger than the directions. Mine is 4" wide.

And here's the inside, which I left relatively blank for a personal note and signature. The peppermint patty fit perfectly in the window!

So that's my exciting news!! I hope you will join us for the challenges over at both blog this week!
