The Aquarium

Happy Hump Day!  
I just wanted to share this weeks DT newsletter project...
The photos are from our vacation to the Outer Banks last year.  One of the things we did was take the kids to the Aquarium .  There was a pretend interactive sea turtle clinic where the kids are able to dress up, diagnose and treat the Sea Turtles, they had a BLAST! 
I used "The Aquarium" pattern set from Designs on Cloud 9
Thanks for visiting!

Teacher Appreciation purse ~ DT post

Oh I just love how this came out. 
I wanted to give my Daughter's Teacher something for Teacher appreciation week that was not so geared toward "school or teaching". Yes,  I know that's what this "holiday" is all about, but I imagine they get so much stuff with apples and books, etc. so... I said to myself, "self, she is a very cutesy trendy girl and what girl doesn't love a new purse!"  So I think I am going to put maybe a gift card and some Hershey Kisses in it.   What could be better, a purse w/ money and chocolate to fuel the body to shop!?  LOL.  I hope she likes it!
 I used the following patterns from (of course)
to make this cute little purse...  
"Pillow Box"
"Tags and tabs" 
"Sarah's Swirls".
