Bugbites Bug Hop Part 2 Entry

I have to say, I don't think I've ever had this much trouble trying to come up with something. I feel like I've completely run out of ideas...sure I have LOTS and LOTS of blogs that I follow for inspiration (and they're ALL amazing!) but I think I just don't have anything to work with.....

I looked through all of my cartridges, and all of my SVG's....and I didn't like any of the summer cuts. I don't have any summer-esque paper.....and I feel like I just threw this together to get it over with....(and thank goodness it is!). Anyway, I'm gonna quit complaining and show it to you...

 Here's is my project :

I used the drink from ScrappingTable. I used the lemon from SVGCuts.com. I had to hand cut the straw and the cherry, and I used a real drink umbrella. The little caterpillar is from Stretch Your Imagination, and I used the Martha Stewart flower border punch.

I decorated the lemon with the clear Sakura Jelly Roll pens, to make it look a little juicy, and around the cup with white gel pen.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE how the cup came out, but everything else just seemed forced.....

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my problems, and I apologize for doing so...LOL.

This will be entered into the BugBites Bug Hop.

Pay It Forward

I found this over at Celeste's blog....she always finds the neatest things! I love her creations, too!

So I'm going to play along.....

"Pay It Forward" is the idea of blessing someone with a random act of kindness without expecting anything in return. It’s passing on a kindness, hoping that your recipients will do the same, and forming a never-ending chain of goodwill. But it isn’t only kindness, it is also a means to connect and share.

"I promise to send an original creation to the (1st) 5 people who leave a comment here. They must, in turn, post this on their blog, and send something they make to the 1st 5 people who comment."

Here's what you need to do:
1. Leave a comment on this post. I will send a handmade gift to the first 5 commenters.

2. Create a post on your blog offering the same.
3. Send a handmade item to your first 5 commenters.
4. It must be sent to your 5 people by end of the year.
Please do not sign up unless you are fully committed to making your 5 items!
