More Trendy Twine Fun....and Giveaway Time!

Today is my 2nd stint over at Trendy Twine as a guest designer!  I just
can't get enough of their awesome twine!

Today's Project:

This started out as a $1 charger plate I bought Mike's.  When I saw them,
I knew there was a project waiting to happen! I used Echo Park
Springtime collection.  I measured and then cut a circle of solid EP cardstock
for the base, then the little scene was made with stickers and paper.  The sun,
clouds, "grass" and flowers are fussy cut....with a second set of the sun and
clouds (just the small cloud and sun) to pop dot those for more depth.  The
butterflies and sentiment are from the sticker sheet.  The butterfly strip and
the green word strip (kinda hard to see under the twine) came from the
border cardstock sheet.   I wrapped the gorgeous Grape Fizz Trendy Twine
around and tied a double bow.....then I adhered the whole thing to the
charger plate with Scor Tape.  The frame that finishes it off.....more Scor
Tape carefully laid around the edge (2 layers of the 1/8") and then wrapped
it with more of the Grape Fizz just frames it out perfectly!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.....and hey, I think I might have
mentioned a little blog candy...hmmm???  Well....if you pop over to Trendy
Twine HERE and leave me a comment, and then come back here and leave
me a comment.....I will have a drawing, and a little blog candy coming your
way if you win (ok, maybe even two or THREE of you)!  It will definitely
involve some twine.....and some other good stuff too...I haven't had a chance
to get it together yet (my son's high school graduation has taken a LOT of
time lately! if you've ever seen my blog's always well
worth the time to comment!  Oh, and by the by...make sure you are a follower
