greeted with a smile...

UPDATE: After a few emails from some very special and talented crafters...the CPT design team positions are filled for the moment.  Thank you and look forward to sharing their talent here using a few CPT goodies beginning in September!

My boys are home...and we were greeted with many smiles, hugs and stories about their adventures.  The house is no longer quiet, the beds are full and time to enjoy a couple weeks of summer with them before school begins again. As they get back to playing here I thought I would give a little shop update.  My digital items are back up in my shop.  With the excitement over the past two days I was a roller coaster of emotions where I took it out on my blog and shop...changing things multiple times :)  They are back up and ready to go if you were interested.  I will be posting my cards, embellishments and more in another week and a half.  Also, I know how much fun working on a design team is and would love to find a few craft people who would be able to and would like to work with my fabric, felt and digital items for the next couple of months.  New holiday items to come soon as well...

Just want to have a little fun seeing what others create using these items.  If you are interested contact me within the next couple of weeks. 
A little stamped inspiration for the day.  Used Basic Grey stamps, The Ribbon Girl ribbon and stick pin, Papertrey Ink stamp and dies, with Pink Paislee papers as well.  And one more thing before I go...
So excited to see this on the cover! Have a great day...



  1. Congrats for the cover! So glad your boys are safely home.
    We are to hit 116 degrees today. Glad we don't have your humidity. (one thing I can be thankful for.)

  2. I bet EVERYONE was all smiles! That's a long time to be away! They are so lucky to have grandparents who love them so, and want to spend that time with them! (And you are, too!) Your cover looks great!! Adorable pin cushion!! On another note...just wondering...are some sweet little paper packs coming our way to accompany those sweet little tags you've come up with??? Love the card!
