It's give.away.day. over at write.click.scrapbook. and once you leave a comment you might be the winner of some very cute Sassafras paper from the Sweet Marmalade line!

So open up a new tab, click on the link to make your comment, and then please be sure to come back here. But, while you're there be sure to feast your eyes on the other lovely projects from our talented team.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to oooh and aaaah and create with the whole line and chose a few of my favorites papers.

For this kitchen art, I had planned on actually cross-stitching, but was afraid that I would mess up that pretty dishtowel inspired paper. So, I cheated and used this font. Funny story, my oldest daughter asked me in a very questioning voice, "So, if we go to Texas Roadhouse (her fave place to eat), we always have to kiss the cook?" "No, Sweetie, just if Mommy or DaDa cook," I assured her!

Yes, that's me with my #1 Sweetie! One day you might figure out that I call each of the other four people living in this house, Sweetie. I used a heart punch behind the fussy cut heart to make it stand out even more than it did with just the pop dot. I really like this paper, too. I still have the little square from where I cut and I am keeping it away from the girls. I want to do a layout with it, titled, you guessed it, "Lucky in Love."

For these next projects, I challenged myself to see just how many items I could make with just ONE SHEET OF PATTERNED PAPER! I surprised myself with what I was able to create. And, now my son's girlfriend is all ready to decorate her dorm room.

There are three thumbtacks for the bulletin board, two magnets made from glass pebbles, one glass pebble/sterling silver/glass bead necklace, one magnetic clip, one hot/cold beverage container, one altered notepad, one notepad made with the Bind-It-All, one luggage tag for her shower caddy, a keychain, an embellished letter "T" and one photo brag book! Whew, that's a lot of stuff.
