This little box was inspired by the one in the catalog but I wanted to take it a little further. So, I used the yummy pool party embossing powder to dress up the bottom of the box a little (I can't tell you how much I love that stuff). I also jazzed up the flower a bit by poking the brad through not only the pool party flower but one of the little flower trim flowers as well. I think it's so cute! I also added a little ribbon leaf. It's such a cute little box and really didn't take 5 minutes to put together even with the embossing with a little help from my SAMJ!

I'm kind of on a roll with the pop up posies kit! It's probably one of my favorite items in the mini catalog and maybe one of my top picks of all time! It's just so fun and cute and can be used in so many more ways than just some tags! So, I decided I'd try to use parts of it on most of my projects.
As soon as I saw the little "cupcake liner" flowers I immediately thought of one of my all time favorite flowers...the daffodil. So of course I had to make my own daffodil. It makes the perfect Easter card!

For my final card I wanted to do something more clean and simple...and of course use something else from the pop-up posies kit, ha! I found the oval famelits work PERFECT in the kraft colored labels!

Paper: Whisper white, calypso coral

And finally we have my scrap page. I used the you are my sunshine single stamp since my photo was of my and my hubby at a beach on our honeymoon! The page is a BIT bright so I used a black and white photo as to not be TOO overwhelming:-) The Oh, whale stamp set added some nice little waves! I also added some glimmer paper to my sun rays and really liked the way it turned out! So sunny!
