JUGS Template Challenge #17 and a My Time Made Easy Sneak Peak!

It's Saturday already! Wow this week went by quickly. I got to do a lot of crafting so that is always fun. Lots to share today. The challenge this week for JUGS was to use a template and I used a new template, Happy Mail, coming out from Lauren Meader's new store, My Time Made Easy. This little mailbox is ADORABLE!!! I couldn't stop with just one. I made the little pink one for Ava Girl and the Cowboy Pig is for Kale. The paper is all new too from My Time Made Easy Digi paper. They have some wonderful new gingham coming out and the flower paper is just too cute! I wanted to make Ava's a little more vintage and Kale's was just supposed to be cutesy. Can you see the cute little chick? That is Ava's nickname, Chicky. She doesn't really like to be called it anymore, but it has just kind of stuck!

I added some stitching to my digi paper and a red scalloped edge to both sides of my mailbox. I LOVE this paper that Kristin has created for Lauren!!! Here's my little Cowboy Pig a little closer!



The stamp images are from a new set coming out from My Time Made Easy February Release called Critters with Heart.....this set is just TOO CUTE!!! You will have to get it to use not only for Valentines, but for all year! I HATE mice....the real ones, but you have to admit that this little guy is just way too cute! This was the first image that I played with and I just love it....look at those tiny little whiskers!


Lauren is sponsoring us this week - that means she is giving away some
BLOG CANDY (A $25 gift certificate to MTME store) to one of our
participants. Lauren has a FREE TEMPLATE that you can use to participate in the contest. Hop over to the JUGS blog for all the details!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope all of you have a great weekend!

Oh Alicia - these are both PRECIOUS - I am in love with the vintage look of Ava's box with its hearts and buttons and who wouldn't LOVE Kale's adorable cowboy pig?? I admit gingham is one of my fave papers - love the blue gingham with the pop of red - WELL DONE - two fabulous projects.

These are so very cute...love the colors and how one is so "girlie" and one so much for a baby boy!!! Theya re going to love them...and I too have a major dislike for "mousies"...I had been feeding the birds and said if it draws mice then thats it...and sure enough we had a mouse...it was like 24 hours of Tom and Jerry...I think my heart is still racing and its been 2 weeks!! Wonderful projects!
