Fun Ideas using Miss Lauren M's sketches and templates!!!

Hey all!! I have been creating up a storm here! Those of you who live here in Great Falls, may think I may have created the storm that came through yesterday...WHAT WAS THAT?! Aren't we in SPRING? Well if you don't feel like we are in SPRING..then you will love my ideas that I used using Lauren Meader's ( Sketches and her "Bun in the Oven" template from Papertrey Ink's Timeless Templates ( So..what am I waiting for!!!!

This fun little gift was made before I decided to try out for Lauren's Design Team....I had been wanting to use these fun summer colors! :) This was very simple and fun to do. :) Believe it or not. I was able to use one sheet of 12x12 cardstock for the card and box! :)

This is what I used: Bazzill 12x12 Cardstock (dotted swiss)
Best Occassions Mixed Media Pack (patterned paper)
Scraps for the punched out circles/polka dots

AHHH...well you know me! :) I got my Thinking Cap on and started thinking of what to do to have her look at me other than screaming on my blog, "PICK ME!!! PICK ME!!!" So, this is what I came up with...I did one project with a card that is from her Saturday Sketches and her Bun in the Oven Template. I have put the sketch first and then the card! :) Lauren's Sketch
