So my day started out a little crazy. We were waiting at the bus stop this morning, and our bus driver was 30 minutes late.....yes, 30!!!! That usually only means one thing....substitute bus driver. Well, I knew there was no way the kiddos would be on time to school, but when it's the whole bus that's late, that's life, I guess. Whenever we have a day like that, it makes me glad that I give our bus drivers goodies on most of the holidays...they deserve it! Here is a little project I made for today. I have a cousin and a friend who both just celebrated birthdays. Now, I'll just admit this.....I am horrible at getting things mailed out on time. I don't know why, but I am. So, planning for my procrastination, I decided to make them little boxes I could fill up with chocolate or cookies. I went with cookies. Snickerdoodles, actually, cut into little bars to fit in the boxes better. I only ended up 2 days late getting those delivered, whereas if I'd have gone with cards, they would probably still be waiting on my desk.
I love this new little template from Papertrey. It is really easy to make. The thing that took the very longest was waiting for the background stamping to dry so I didn't smear it too much. And do you like the Kraft with Enchanted Evening? I do. I love this shade of blue, and I love it paired with Kraft. For my cousin's I decided to make a red one, since I know she likes red. She's not a pink girl, and that's okay. I can make red things now. Yes, the background stamping isn't very even on the red one. It actually looked okay until the flap got closed. Now it looks like I just forgot to stamp that section, instead of it looking kind of old and worn off, which is what it's supposed to look like.
Enjoy your day wherever you are. The kiddos have ballet and flag football tonight, so I'm sure by the time I get home I'm gonna be beat!
