{ Apologies & Pinwheels }

Okay, so I know that I owe some big apologies. I haven't written in a *long* time. In my defense, things have been super busy around here. It has just been one thing after another for the past month: a romantic/scenic get-a-way to see the Luray Caverns (something I've always wanted to do), my girlfriend's wedding (I was a bridesmaid), babysitting my niece, a shoebox swap, findng/getting fitted for a bridesmaid's dress for my cousin's wedding (on the 14th), a big project at work, my birthday, the new SU! Catalog release (did I just hear some angels sing?) and I'm sure that there is something else that I am forgetting. Anyway, it's not that I didn't want to write, I just had very little free time and decided to use that time to either be with my hubby or to stamp! Can ya blame me?

Anyway, I do have a few projects to share with you, but I'll have to pace myself. For the first one, I thought I'd show you one of my favorites. This was my design for the shoebox swap. I found the tutorial on the Stamp Monkey's blog (see a link over to the left).

Stamps: Warm Words, Fine Lace Ink: Close to Cocoa, Versamark Paper: Pretty in Pink, Loves Me Designer Series (retired), Close to Cocoa, Whisper White Accessories: Small & Large Tag Punch, 1/2"Punch

Isn't it adorable? I think it would be perfect for a little girl's birthday card, don't you? The one that was featured on Stamp Monkeys was an actual working pinwheel that spun, but mine is glued down. I thought it would just make it simpler. I wanted something simple but that also had a bit of a "Wow" to it, and I think this accomplished that!
