Have you picked up your....

Spring Gift set(s) yet? They're all so great it's seriously hard to choose a fav. Jenn and her family are going to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago next week and she thought she'd get a jump start by creating her layout ahead of time.

She used the Relax gift set with that Spongebob-like font and added Squirt, Scrap-Mart's exclusive BossKut octopus. They're a perfect match! Jenn's "sea weed" is actually a Silhouette download of a vine! How creative!

Veronica's friends recently got married and she created a beautiful altered cake for them.

She started out with a set of wood boxes in different sizes and covered them with paper. Then she glued them together and added the lace trim and the paper flowers and glitter leaves from her Quickuts Leaf die (RS-0101). She topped it off with a Quickutz Revolution Flourish. Here's a closer view of the cake and the top...

What a beautiful gift!

Check out Tammy's clever card she created for her hubby's birthday!

I know you're thinking this looks like a regular card but look at how it opens!

Isn't that cool?! Tammy learned how to make this card from Wendy Bell's blog. Click HERE to view the tutorial. She used her Classic Squares Large and Classic Scallop Squares Large Nestabilities along with a sentiment from Unity's Birthday Chic stamp set. I can't wait to try this!

I'm heading out of town this week for the Arlington Memory Makers Great American Scrapbook Convention and I thought it would be fun to stash a card my hubby would find after I was gone. Here's what I created for him...

Inspiration for this card came from Kazan's sketch and card at 2 Sketches 4 You. I used some Sassafras Lass Bungle Jungle papers and Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Petite Scallop Ovals
and the adorable Chomp, Scrap-Mart's exclusive BossKut alligator. The inside of the card says "Later Gator!" We'll see how long it takes him to find the card!

We hope you had a great weekend! There will be no sketch this Friday, GASP!!!, but no worries! I have something special in store for you! So, participants of last Friday's sketch will be showcased on Wednesday! And, if that's not enough we have a special release tomorrow! I promise, you won't want to miss it! See you right back here tomorrow morning!
