Artisan Wednesday Wow- The Finale

Oh boy what an emotional day! I can't believe that this is it...it has been a wonderful journey and one I will never ever forget. This Team is seriously phenomenal! Amazing amazing women & great friends! We have had one heck of a year! Not only have I been continually inspired by their talented but my heart has been forever touched by their kindness & friendship. LOVE YOU ALL! #ADT2013
Well I'm sure you didn't come just to hear my sappy comments so how about some eye candy... 

I created this box for my BFF Lynda Lee! Since we room together I love to give her nightly pillow gifts when we go to Stampin Up events so this was the gift on the last night. I put some yummy caramels inside but really the box WAS the gift! Lol! But after trying to figure out how I was going to transport this little beauty to Salt Lake City with out the sentiment being crushed I realized it was smarter to move it over so it wasn't hanging off the side of the box quiet so much-
 It made it there in perfect shape! Yay!
My next project is the card I made for the ADT swap & it truly represents how I feel. Waaahh! I Miss Them Already!
Sigh...Well on a VERY HAPPY note I have teamed up with Alanna & Connie to bring you lots more creative inspiration & beautiful projects that you can create with us every month! If you didn't see the announcement you can Click Here! It's like Creativity, Delivered!
And MORE Good News- We will all be continuing a monthly blog hop called "Fancy Friday" on the last Friday of the month starting in August!
Ok time to visit my dear friend Alanna Wharf & hopefully her post won't make me break out the tissue...
