Creative Cuts & More: Project #5 (and a few vaca photos!)

Just got back from a week at the lake.  Ahhhhh, so relaxing.  :)

Dug our feet in the sand, played in the waves and made smores around a fire at night. Life is good.

I didn't have time to post this project before I left.  It is my last project for my time at a Guest Designer with Creative Cuts & More.  I sure have loved working with all the goodies I received!  For this project I used a Large Matchbox and a couple Round Coasters.  This little ladybug is a clever money holder!

I think she would be a little cuter with those googly eyes, but I didn't have any on hand and sometimes you just have to make do with what you have, right?  I hope you have enjoyed my projects, I sure enjoyed making them!  My thanks to Terri and the rockin' DT over at Creative Cuts and More for letting me hang out with them during the month of July!

Happy Monday, friends!
