What a wonderful Saturday afternoon I am having. I made a quick trip to JoAnns fabrics last night and picked up a few dollar items and a couple punches for 40% off. I had this little idea in my head for a "picnic basket which would be a sort of a monthly card organizer.
I have this sweet little old lady in mind to receive this. Her name is Miss Maggie and she goes to my husband's little church that a Minister friend of his is trying to revive...she's always giving my husband ten dollars for playing his guitar (the church can't afford a pianist so my husband volunteers guitar right now) and he doesn't want to hurt her feelings and not accept it. When my husband takes our son to church, Maggie sits with him during the service part while my husband is playing... My son loves her...she is as sweet as watermelon! That gave me an idea...what goes better in a picnic basket than watermelon? Nothing...so without further ado...
I lined the inside with a lighter pink more suitable for writing on. Then I had to taste the watermelon so I took a huge bite out of it! YUM! This was not as easy as I had first thought as my punch was trying to cut through 5 layers but it eventually went when I put ALL of my weight into it--hmmm! Then I covered this little chipboard tag...stamped a message... and tied the red/white/and blue ribbons...and of course added my little flowers and WALLA!!! Now I am onto the picnic basket which will be made of two (modified) great value muffin boxes. I will post that as soon as I finish! Have a happy scrapp 'n weekend & thanks for stopping by!
