Paper Popsicles DT announcement and Cosmo Cricket contest

Does anyone else feel like they are going to wash away. I swear we have had so much rain in the past two weeks it isn't even funny. So much so that even the lake was out of its banks this week with the storms. That is saying alot because that NEVER happens. It finally stopped on Sat night. So I took full advantage on Sunday afternoon and did some much needed gardening while the ground was soft. I finally had a chance to prepare my flowerbeds. I had hopes of finishing them up this week but now the rain is moving back in..ugh. Patrick was suppose to start t-ball on Thursday. I guess we will see hopefully it will be gone by then. Anywho, on to what this post is suppose to be about...lol.

Paper Popsicles is having a March Cosmo Cricket contest this month. I finally got around to working on mine this past week. Of course with all the rain we have been having I haven't had a chance to take any pics of it and still haven't been able to get a really good shot of it.
I love Cosmo Cricket products, I don't think I have seen any of their lines that I don't like. Here I used Jack's World papers, blackboard and stickers. I wanted to make some baby boy goodies. But really the frame and card could be for either. I used painted a wooden frame with Peebles Inc spice paint. I used the blackboard shapes with matching stickers and added google eyes to the animals. Inked the edges with pearl rust ink and also a thin piece of ribbon I added to the giraffe's neck. Easy Peasy...

The little book is very simple. I used a blackboard albums and 2 sheets of papers, Arctic Frog Rubons and a sticker border. I wanted it very simple so it could easily be carried in a purse without worry of messing it up.

I really like how the card turned out. I used one of the new flourish rubber stamps from kits2remember on this one. I love these stamps they are so pretty and at a great price as well. I used stamp 1-05. It is actually a long stamp but I just parts of it. Alpha stamps are studio g. The little tag is popped up.

Here is another layout I did a couple of weeks ago with the Love Notes line...I love love love this line...such yummy colors. Now on to other news.....
