Scallop Envelope Basket

Hi there! How was your weekend?! It is cold where you are? It is freezing here! I am such a wimp! LOL 60 degrees is cold to me! It really is freezing though! I went through town on my way to my demo meeting today and the giant thermostat in the sky said 22...brrrrrrrr! Now that is cold!

My meeting today was fun and wonderful! We had a shoebox swap! If you are unfamiliar with what that is allow me to explain! We all showed up with a finished project and enough kits for everyone in the group to make one just like it! There were some really fun projects! I will share those with you tomorrow, but will share mine now! I ordered the SU! Scallop Envelope die on a whim because that tiny little envelope was too cute! Then blog surfing one day I saw a basket made from 6 of the die cuts and thought that 4 would make an adorable option as well! After I made this one I went investigating and found a few other made with 4! They go together very quickly and are as cute as can be! Change your colors and you have a perfect basket for any occasion! I kept mine neutral and added a flower from the new SU! set called Vintage Vogue. I am in LOVE with this set! It is just beautiful! I bent the petals on and layered two flowers. I added some ribbon and gold cording to the center. Then I adhered some leaves and pop-dotted it to the front and there you have it! This was really a lot of fun to make!

I am very excited to say that I have broken down and ordered a light/tent kit! I am hoping to improve the quality of the photos on my blog. I sent the link to my mom (who is the WORLD'S BEST PHOTOGRAPHER!!!!) to get her opinion and she liked it so much she ordered one too! :)

Ok, I am off to try to get some stuff done before I call it a night! Have a super evening! I will be back soonest! :)
