Bee Happy Can :)


Oh, these pails are too COOL! And, yes... I sewed on it! LOL. The Love, Elsie paper is my new favorite. The rose colored center paper has flowers embossed on it... you can see from the photo, but click here to see it. That Betty line was made for ME! :) I love it all... I want it all!!!

Beate sent me some stamped images of the bees (thanks babe). Look how perfect those bees fit on that can!! I used my Coluzzle to make a layer of the embossed paper under the bees on the lid. The flowers on the side are those chipboard flowers from the

chipboard flowers from theMaya Road Chipboard Collection. I just mushed them in my craft ink pads and then added some Stampin'Up! Rhinestone brads in the centers. The flower on the top of the can is from eclectic Paperie... man, they have flowers! It's hard to choose they have so many. I love flowers. The little tag is made with the tag corner punch from Stampin'Up!. Look at that little jewel on the flower... got those at eP too. :)

All the ribbon is Cindy ribbon from a batch Beate sent to me (thanks again sweet friend). You are so awesbomb to share your ribbon with me. (I'm happy you are home) This took me all week to make. I can only sit for short periods, but I loved how it turned out. Everyone is pitching in for my Grandma's birthday to get her some nice patio furniture... she will get a bucket full of money!! I can't wait to see the look on her face when she opens up the can. I have a matching card half made, but not done yet. Hopefully, I'll get that done Friday night.

Tomorrow we head to the lake for the last preparations for the big party. My cousins will arrive late afternoon. The rain is suppose to stop by afternoon. I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend. My kids LOVE the 4th of July at the lake. The fireworks go over the lake, so there are a zillion boats floating in the water watching them. We try and get a spot right up front so it feels like they are going to fall on us. Everyone floats around.... some boats tie together and anchor. Each year someone plays the star spangled banner on a trumpet. It's dark... all you can see is all the boat lights. It's way cool. This year it's on Monday, so that people won't miss the fireworks in town on the 4th. I'm so happy all my cousins and their kids will get to share it with us and my Grandma.

I have to tell you, that swap that I had to drop from, they surprised me today, when my mailman delivered a box of swaps! I just about cried I was so happy. FREAKin awesbomb friends I have. Stampers are THE most generous kind people on the earth... I'm serious. I get to feeling so down and frustrated when my back is constantly bothering me, then I am reminded how lucky I am and truly blessed. Thanks from my heart you sweet swappers!! I'm gonna make it up to you all.

Okay... enough from me... need to get that banana bread baking. Thanks for stopping by!! Happy 4th of July (a little early).

You make the cutest things and this is so pink and so YOU! You can do anything, Cami, and make it look to die for!

Love what you have done with this pale :)! I wish some craft stores in my area had these cans, but they don't seem to.

Laura B said...

I love the can. It's so cute. I am sorry about your back. I so feel your pain...literally. I have terrible arthritis in my neck and back and have already had both hips replaced. They broke my left hip during the surgery. I can no longer work full time, and can't work in a sitting position for very long....crafting is the worse as I need to look down, and lean forward with my shoulders ahead of my hips. My husband built me a work table/hutch so I can stand and work...but again limited time.

SO, I don't know the details of your back, if you want to chat, drop me an email.
