Got Milk???

Wow, this week has really flown by. First week of school done for my kids and they did a great job. Yeah!! Now enjoying a nice long weekend. We ran a bunch of errands today and we are hitting the beach tomorrow for a little boogie boarding. I did get this done this week...Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo!!

I was very excited to try the MilkMade template from Papertrey Ink. If you haven't already checked out Lauren Meader's blog, you should. She makes all the templates, she is pretty amazing. So creative and productive and inspirational!! So...here is my creation!!




I am in love with this template!! Seriously, two little milk cartons with their own little carrying case...who wouldn't be in love!! I used mostly Papertrey Ink products for this. I use their Polka Dot basic stamp set to match the milk cartons to the polka dot paper I lined the carton with.


Oh my, this is so cute. Did I already say that??? I made my husband look at it about 400 times already and he's pretty much over it. Not me, LOL!!! Both cartons contain candies and I made this for somebody at my scrap retreat that i'm going to next weekend. I know she doesn't read my blog, so i'm safe!!

I just love this template and will definitely be using it again and again. Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a great weekend!!
