I am going away this weekend with my friends on a scrapping retreat in PA - I am so excited! I can't wait for the 48 hours of creative time that awaits.
I cherish my scrapping friends and I wanted to give each of them a little something. I was tipped off about these cool cans from my friend Sue D a while back -- they were in a clearance bin at Staples for an unbelievable price. I snatched up every one of them --- I knew I would find a good use for them, and so I did! I made these little "Scrapper's Survival Kits" - one for each of my friends. I found this pretty paper in my stash -- it matched the teal tops perfectly -- and added a few Prima's, a chipboard initial, a bunch'a ribbons, and a snippet of stampin'. I sure hope the girls like them!
Each has an assortment of items in them -- a package of tissues, some mints, a mini stamp set, a package of glitter, some rub-on embellishments, a glue stick, and the most essential item, some chocolate.

I helped DH paint the deck today...I had greay and white paint all over my body -- why can't I be neater when I paint? Oh well, the paint thinner removed the leftover ink on my fingertips, so it's not all bad... Hope YOUR weekend is great!

The card above is another challenge card (I guess I really like challenges!). The idea was to use at least one of the new punches from the 2007-08 SU catalog. Since my Circle Scallop Punch just died (wahhhhh), I chose to use the 5-Petal Punch. After realizing that it doesn't work with some of the sets I own -- I think SU needs a 6 petal punch -- I decided to make Poinsettias!
