sweet pea guest design team & HUGE NEWS!!!

I won last week at sweet pea stampers
wooHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!
How exciting it is to love a stamp company so much and win at the challenges
feels real good

Then I got an email from Pascale from Sweet Pea Stampers ASKING ME TO JOIN THE DESIGN TEAM!!! COULD THIS BE REAL??? I AM BEYOND EXCITED, COMPLIMENTED, FREAKED OUT AND JUST HAPPY :) I can not believe that someone likes my crafts enough to be put on a design team and that it is the SPS DT!!! SO UNBELIEVEABLE!!!

To celebrate I will be posting a candy for my followers later today or tomorrow so stayed tuned :)

I hope my love for sweet peas is infectious, that you girls give this weeks challenge a try, and being "Anything Goes" you can craft to your hearts content!!!
Please join us I'd LOVE to see what you come up with :)

So when I was thinkin 'bout anything goes, to me that meant "any craft" so I thought I'd construct a box, with a small assortment of some of my favorite sweet peas.

The box was made so the center fit a 4x4 card (took me 3 tries to figure it out...lol) I loosely based it on this but I used my own measurements. I cut the bottom at 7", then scored around the edges at 1&1/2", cut slits up the four sides, folded it all to make the bottom. The top was cut at 5&1/4, scored at 2/3, folded and cut the slits the same, edge punch the sides & glue together. I affixed the ribbon & the butterflies & cut out 4x4 cards from cardstock & decorated them with the fantabulous sweet pea images!








I love how it turned out...hope you do too...can't wait to see yours!!!
