We spent the day at Hollywood Studios and the kids had a blast!! We started the day pretty early. We decided that it would be best to split up so Russ took Alexis on the fast and furious rides while Brandon and I shopped and rode the tame rides. It was perfect. Here are a few pics of our day…
The kids love coming back to the room at night to see the fun stuff!
We decided to have dinner at Epcot and visited Mexico. Great food and more fun. We thought the kids would be pooped out after that… Oh NO! We were in the pool at 10 pm. The favorite thing for the kids has been swimming with ducks. So silly!! Tomorrow we will visit Magic Kingdom!! I’ll post tonight’s fun goodies in the morning. Even Russ got a cool gift!!
Simple, Simple, Simple. Do you love a simple project? Oh my word. I love it when I can make a simple project and it's pretty. My Stamps in the Mail participants are working with the Tea Shoppe stamp set. This is one of their bonus projects I showed them how to make this month. It's a simple tag made using My Digital Studio. I used the Tea Time 2 DSP Digital download and cropped the paper inside my tag to show the areas that I wanted. I used the Taffeta Trimmings Ripple ribbon on the bottom and added a little shadow so it looks 3 dimensional. I love that shadow button in the MDS program. The best part about this stamp set being digital is that you can make your tea cups ANY size you need. They can be super tiny or really big unlike your actual stamp set.
To make this little project, I simply filled the cello bag (this one is being discontinued BTW) with a goodie and cut my bag topper using the Label Framelit Die Cut. I folded that over the cello bag and stapled my tag underneath. I added a piece of the Satin ribbon around the topper to hide the staple. Very Simple. I added a Pearl to the Tea Cup and my project was finished. I was able to make 10 of these fast and easy yesterday and gave each of my stamp club members one of these as a Thank You for putting up with me. <smile>
