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!
