For you.... Cute Tree Kraft Tag! And some Updates!

Hello Crafty Friends! I will be doing some traveling over the next two weeks and will not have internet access while I am away.. *GASP* What will I do??

I have several posts on pre-post for some upcoming challenges and design team projects along with a super fun hop. I hope you will join in on all the fun that we have going on. I will catch up on all my visiting when I return the first week of May. I hope I will have maybe one more project toward the end of the week to share before I leave. I will miss everyone!

While I should be packing, I just had to sneak in a quick CAS tag, Now I consider this CAS  compared to how I create!And it took me under 10 minutes.

I have also been trying hard to use my supplies that have taken over! So my entire project is made from my scrap cardstock pile. I also used a background stamp that I bought used from someone in 2009 that I never used before! I also took on the task of organizing my buttons!! And was easily able to find just the perfect buttons to add!

Tag (from my scrap pile) was cut using Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
Tree is cut from Pooh and friends
I added the flowers using a border punch and added dots of baby blue Stickles
Tim Holtz Distressed ink for my background and inking of my twine

My First Skittles Guest Designer!! How do you use your Skittles??

Yippee! I am super excited to be starting this little segment on my blog! I will be having guest designers pop over to show off how they use my handmade Skittles on their projects! Looking for the latest and greatest colors? Check them out HERE!  If you are interested in Guest Designing and showing off how you use my Skittles too, please email me!
Followers that comment over on my guest designer posts will be entered to randomly win Skittles! The more comments you leave over at the Guest Designer the more chances you have of winning!
I am so excited to  welcome Rhonda from BumbleBee Creations. Rhonda has been a super amazing blogging friend over the past few years, her projects are adorable and she is just the sweetest! Thank you Rhonda for Sharing with us!

Here is what Rhonda has to share:

I do daycare in my home, so I saved up and washed-out the plastic baby food containers--I knew I could find something to do with them! They were perfect to put my SKITTLES in! I then took my DYMO  and added the names of the colors  to the outside of each container..later I also added 1 SKITTLE to the outside of each container with my Hot glue gun too, it is now so easy to see what color you are looking for! (Holly helped out with this idea) Thanks Holly!
 My hubby put together a few scraps and built the storage unit for me--then I painted and added some Designer paper from My Minds Eye, called Love Nest.  I made the SKITTLE sign with MY Creative Times Build a banner set and also the Label Font set-didn't it come out cute?! So there you go....simple, yet ORGANIZED!
I even have enough extra room (until Carri comes up with more colors) to organize my Tim Holts Inks.

I tried to get a bit closer, so you can actually see what it says: (click on the photo and it will be clearer)

Now, I have also made a card for today to show off how the SKITTLES look on your cards/projects.

I just had to use a little BEE...isn't he cute? He is from Create a Critter. I added a wobble, so he wobbles and looks really happy, and I have used my Sunshine Yellow SKITTLES!

Thanks for stopping by today--see you Later!

Wow Rhonda! Your organization is super amazing!! And love your adorable bee card!! 
Be sure to visit Rhonda HERE to leave a comment be entered to win some skittles!
