Gearing up for Summer

Hello Family, Friends, Fellow Crafters, and Followers!!

Just when I thought it was safe to take some deep, relaxing breaths, I get sucked back in.  I enjoy this time of year at work because my crafty side meets up with my technical side.  Last week, we celebrated our annual Employee of the Year Ceremony.  The recipient chose a tropical theme and I took off from there.  A lot of what I did was store bought, but here are some personal touches I added to the event.

This bowl sat at the head table with the Recipient and Runner Up.  I kept asking for live fish but no one was biting.  On the morning off, a co-worker surprised us all by bringing them in.

Seating for the "Executives" and Managers.

Although this looks mostly like water, it is actually majority filled with water beads.  We had a blast watching those tiny beads form into a jelly-filled, marble size bead.

This was my favorite to create.  Place card settings.  Just imagine sitting on your mat, at the beach, under an umbrella, relaxing on your rolled up towel for support.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.  Stay tuned for a Summertime Blog Hop, on Friday!

Welcome to the Jungle

Hello Family, Friends, Followers, & Fellow Crafters!!!!

It's been awhile since my last post but things should be back to normal after this weekend.  I have been busy with lots of projects including 60 water bottles, 5 vinyl tshirts, cards, and wedding invitations. The last project on my list (for May), was to complete an Animal Print album for my kids' K teacher.  I had no idea if she was using it for school or home, so I created one as general as I could.  This was fun because I wasn't restricted by pictures and colors.  I added embellishments to most of the pages last night but didn't take any more pictures.  Here are some of the pages:

Thanks for taking time to stop by!  Have a GREAT weekend ALL!
