I'm sorry I was MIA the other day. I live in NY, and earlier this week, we had a WICKED heat wave. It was so wicked, in fact, that it wreaked havoc in my home, lol.
We had no power the other night, and since then, my computers were acting a bit freakish (not sure if it was because of the outage, or what) either way, I'm FINALLY back up and running, and I have my My Time Made Easy project to share with you.
As most of you already know, Lauren is one of the sponsors over at the Color Throwdown's 100th challenge this week! SO many prizes up for grabs too -- you should check it out, and play if you can!!
I'm sharing the new Wonderful Watering Can with you all today -- every month, Lauren's creativity with cardstock never ceases to amaze me. What she can't do! I figured I would tie my project in with this week's challenge colors, no easy feat for me, I might add.
I'd like to pretend that every template we're given is easy, but I really did struggle with this one...I wasn't sure of the best placement for the sentiment, although I do like the different colored strips of CS around the can...overall I like how it came out, but it certainly wasn't without strife.
In retrospect, I might use a different color ribbon - as the red ribbon with the green flowers is now screaming "Christmas" to me, but at the time I thought it was a good idea...lol. I guess all of that heat earlier in the week affected my brain - ha ha.
However, all that said, please don't hold it against Lauren's template, as she and the rest of the girls on the DT have totally ROCKED this one. I wonder if it's because I usually kill houseplants? Maybe it's some strange psychological thing.
I will say though, for someone who kills house plants, I'm quite excited, as our vegetables outside have been doing wonderfully!! Take a peek...
These are our sungold cherry tomatoes (they're orange when they're ripe):
and one of our cucumbers...mmmmmm....
and here's another vegetable...oh wait...that's just a s'more ;)
I love Summer...except for those blasted heat waves ;).
Thanks for stopping by -- hope you all have a great weekend!
