Naturally Sweet

I don't know about you... but I'm ready for summer - and summer projects!!! Bria told me yesterday that she can't wait until summer so she can fly kites, have picnics, ride her bike and pick strawberries in the garden!! I love how kids remind us how to see life through the eyes of a child! 

Today my project was totally inspired by my little sweetie! 

We made a cute little strawberry holder for Grandma. I got this strawberry shape from the Silhouette store and used polka dot Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon digital paper to fill my shape. We filled the strawberry up with green mini eggs! One of Grandma's favorites! 

I recently received a Jaded Blossom stamp set (Love Stings) as a thank you for participating in their guest appearance month in January, that I was super excited to play with! This sentiment fit perfectly with my little strawberry!! I also used digital paper for my leaves, but I cannot for the life of me find out which set it was from!! (I have a LOT of digital paper!!) I used some Divine Twine and a button from my stash to top my strawberry off. 

I hope you enjoyed our little taste of summer today!! :)
