Good morning friends~ August has flown by already and fall is definitely in the air! Even though I hate to see summer end, fall is always a welcome change. The end of August brings us to the always fun, group post from the 12 Kits of Occasion gals. This month's kit was from Lisa Elton of My Paper Tales. Her taste is flawless and I just adored the fun colors and patterns she included in this months "Teacher's Pet" kit. So adorable!!
Here's my cards and projects:
I didn't really want to separate the PTI Enclosed Apple but I kept going back to putting the school bus behind the detailed die so I went with it. And just look at that darling embossed cardstock in the background. I could do with more of that!
This card would be a great card to give to a child's school bus driver at the end of a long school year. I have a deep respect for them as I'm sure they have to deal with a lot of crazy kids!
This is the second half of the PTI Enclosed Apple. I added a little Fired Brick Distress Ink around the edges and some detail with a white gel pen. The leaves are the only thing I added of my own. They are cut using PTI's Stamp A-Fair Exploring the 1940's. Lisa included lots of button and bakers twine for the perfect finishing touches.
Lisa included so many of these cute little critters. I colored this one using Copics. She already had it cut out using the sweet scalloped tag so I just added a couple more polka dotted leaves since I had them sitting on my table.
Fun felt flowers, buttons and ribbon are all from the kit. I wanted to hoard this darling paper from October Afternoon that Lisa included. I just know I'm going to see the other gals projects and wish I had saved it so I could CASE them!
All of the elements Lisa put in her kit were as cute as could be. Just look at that sweet polka dotted apple button! Is anything any cuter??
Another darling little image to color and some fun stars. Lisa thought of everything!
Finally these two adorable little milk cartons from Lawn Fawn. I added the Spellbinder Apple A Day because I had already used up the apples Lisa sent. These will be filled with pure sugar candy and sent to my great littles out of state.
I still have plenty of leftovers to CASE my wildly talented team mates.
Thank you so much Lisa for such a fun kit! Makes me wish I still had little ones at home but I know my great littles will enjoy getting some happy mail from their auntie.
