CPS 112 & Package Repurposing

Wow- I am sure glad it is Friday. How about you? I am looking forward to a fairly quiet weekend of crafting, photo editing, some cleaning (not so fun), and attending a dinner for a friend that is coming into town.

Well, this week I am a reader/participant at CPS, instead of a designer. :) I ran out of time before leaving for my cousin's wedding last week, and couldn't get my card done. So- I did one last night for sketch 112, because the sketch is awesome and I didn't want to skip it completely. Should I link up to Mr. Linky? Tee hee!

I did this little project in celebration of Earth week for the Vintage Plum blog. Instead of throwing away the plastic packages that the product comes in, repurpose it to hold a sweet treat for someone special! The great thing about this one is I made sure everthing can either slide off or easily be removed so you can wash the plastic holder and reuse it over again. The sentiment is stamped in Staz-On, so it should last for awhile. Maybe not forever, but just restamp it when you need to! :)

**PULLED FOR PUB**

Do you want to craft "with me" next weekend? Well, I am cordially inviting you to participate in two events! First up is the Cuttlebug Spa Retreat that runs from May 1-3rd, 2009. There are a TON of prizes, inspiration, and projects all weekend long. Check out all the information on the event HERE...it is going to be fabulous!

And I will also be part of an online crop at Vintage Plum as well. Please join us at Vintage Plum on May 2nd - 3rd from 12pm cst for our VP Online Crop. We will have layout challenges, card challenges, altered projects and games. Prizes will be awarded for every challenge and game. All challenges will be due by Monday 8pm (CST) to be eligible for a prize. The overall winner of the crop will be spotlighted on Vintage Plum's blog. They will be interviewed and have all of their projects made during the crop posted on the blog. They will also win a $20.00 gift certificate good toward a kit purchase in Vintage Plum's store. We hope to see you there!

Well, that is all I have for now! I hope you have a great start to your weekend!

Until later,
~Lea
