Danny got to pick out the paper color and pattern that I used so he went with Blue Bayou Prints Designer Series paper and I picked Priceless for the main stamp set. I pretty much stayed with 3 colors for the whole book, Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Whisper White, with just a touch of Basic Black.
I had to include a picture of our Davidson Puppy...even though we lost her over a year ago, she is still a part of the family and greatly missed. I kinda feel bad that my puppies Bonnie and Clyde didn't make it into this book, so I guess that means I'll just have to make another one...
I'm thinking this is going to be a great little gift I can make for people. I'm guessing the next few I make will be for grandparents and family members.

The next project I did was the little gift box. I stamped the swirl from Baroque Motifs in Blush Blossom amd the small blossom in Perfect Plum, stamping it 3 times before I re-inked it to get a nice faded look to the flowers. I stamped Cherish in Elegant Eggplant and finished the whole thing off with some thin organza ribbon.
My next card was the So Saffron Z fold card. It had a few swirls stamped in tone on tone so I added some more swirls and Rose Red butterflies from Priceless. I stamped an extra butterfly on Very Vanilla and cut it out an mounted it on a bit of coiled wire to give it a little bounce. I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and finished it off with some Old Olive Poly-Twill ribbon.
The final card I made was this one. I started with a Rose Red base and stamped some swirls from Priceless and then layered some Ginger Blossom DS and covered the seam with River Rock Double Stitched ribbon. I stamped the sentiment on Confetti Cream in Rose Red and layered it on a piece of Basic Black. I wrapped the ends with Linen Thread and added a small Library Clip with more Linen Thread tied to it. The main image is from a soda can that was colored, embossed and stamped. I finished off the card by piercing the upper right corner.
The final project was a 6 x 6 piece of desk art. I started with 6 x 6 piece of Going Gray and layered a piece of 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 textured Basic Black cardstock. On that I layerd 2 1/2 inch squares of Pixie Pink and Ginger Blossom papers. I stamped the swirl from Priceless on the pink squares and them used a black rub-on from the SAB set with swirls and flowers onto the squares. In the lower right corner I added another rub-on that says "You make me happy."
I'm very happy with all of the projects I was able to make from this kit. Susan thank you so much for letting me join. I hope everyone like what I was able to come up with.
