Echo Park Paper ‘Scoot’ card!

First of all.. how cute is the collection name ‘Scoot’? It just sounds so cute and playful! This new Echo Park Paper collection is full of bright colors, playful patterns, and adorable stickers!

I made this cute card for the EP booth, and now I get to share it with you all! If you’re interested in making one it is a FREE project download which you can get RIGHT HERE.


Here’s my Scoot ‘Up, up and away!” card!

I created some fun ‘paper quilled’ circles to create clouds! I thought this was a really cute touch!


Hopefully you’ve been inspired by this little card! Want more card ideas? Echo Park/Carta Bella just released our latest idea book ‘Creative Cards’. It’s FULL of gorgeous cards and you can download it RIGHT HERE!

Ok, this is a short post today.. I’ve got things to get done around here… cleaning. bleh.  My husband is pretty sick right now and I am doing my best to stay away from the germies. He just went to urgent care so fingers crossed it’s nothing too serious. He’s been sick over a week now and ‘really bad’ the past four days. No fun. So while he’s gone I’m gonna clean up a bit since I’ve avoided doing anything too ‘loud’ while he’s been resting. Perfect excuse not to vacuum! LOL! After that I think I will finish up this other layout I started! Ah.. and speaking of layout.. I woke up this morning to be a ‘top 3′ most bookmarked on Two Peas. Amazing.. really!

OH! and a little FYI.. if things start looking weird in here this weekend it’s because I am changing over my blog color palette to coordinate with my craft room colors.. Weird. Perhaps, lol. But it will be PURTY!

See ya later! Have a great weekend!

‘LOVE’ card and blog hop winners announced!

Hey there!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Mine was less than thrilling, but what can ya do?.


So, I have a card to share today.. plus some WINNERS from the Carta Bella and Echo Park blog hops! Yay!

I don’t think I ever officially announced here on my blog that I am now on the DOODLEBUG design team! Oh, yes! I’m pretty excited about it! I’m loving it so far and the happy and bright designs are right up my alley! I love when I get on a DT and just feel in a ‘happy place’. As always.. I feel so lucky to have been selected! As someone who often struggles with the whole ‘is my work good enough’ thing, I’m always surprised when emails come through for a DT or guest designer work, etc. I’m a lucky, lucky girl!

With that said.. here’s my first Doodlebug DT blog post! I have two other really cute projects to share with you next week, too! For today, I have a card using the ‘LOVE” stickers. You can see some of the other DT girls take on the adorable ‘LOVE” stickers on the DOODLEBUG BLOG. Very cute stuff, peeps!

I decided to make my card have a heart shaped front. My inspiration was a heart shaped candy box. I added some cute ribbon ruffles and it just pulled it all together! Now if there would just be chocolate in the card when I opened it.. *smiles*

Pretty, isn’t it? It has a simple loveliness to it.

There’s the adorable ‘LOVE’ sticker! I added a flower sticker and a flower Doodle-Pop to the bottom right. I really LOVE the Doodle-Pops!

I can’t wait to share the rest with your next week!


Alrighty.. time for the BLOG HOP WINNERS! I want to thank you all for taking time to join us and all your sweet comments!  You all really make me smile! I am REALLY bad about commenting on blogs so I always appreciate those who leave me comments.

ECHO PARK HOP WINNER… *drumroll*… Congrats Maureen McPherson!!!! (I will be emailing you)

SVG Cuts stamps now available at UNITY!

If ya love stamping.. this post is for you! (and even if you don’t love stamping.. keep reading! I mean.. you’re already here anyways, right?)

My friends at SVG Cuts have teamed up with Unity Stamp Co. to bring you some super cool stamps! This is quite exciting! Why? Because SVG Cuts was actually going to discontinue their stamp line. Waaah! But not anymore!


I always say I am not much of a stamper.

Do you see a pattern here on my blog..?

“I’m not much of a card maker..”

“I’m not much of a scrapbooker”

……… *blink-blink*

“Then what DO you do, woman?!”



I hoard crafty supplies.

.. and cookie cutters. Really. I have probably 150-175 cookie cutters.


Anyhow, even though I am “not much of a stamper”…. I subscribe to two of Unity’s kit clubs. I get the Stamp of the Week (because something about those itty bittys in my mail box weekly just makes me HAPPY!) and then I also get the Kit of the Month. I love the quality of these stamps! The are red rubber stamps mounted on cling foam. Quality!

And to prove what a non-seasoned stamper I am.. I had no idea to ‘season’ your stamps you can rub an eraser over them! What the?.. I thought the stamps stamped cleanly enough at first.. and then after I did the eraser trick I was like, “Marry me, you lovely crisp stamp!”.

Well, it was something liek that. I was quite amused.


So, being on the SVG Cuts team I thought I should show some support and get my stamps inked up! Right now there are only two SVG Cuts sets available.. with more to come! I used the ‘’ sentiment stamp from All You Need Is Love kit! (On sale right now for $10.99!!) and the owl from the January KOTM (So cute!). The tree brances are from Unity ‘Naturally You’ and the hearts are another monthly kit “All You Need…”

Do you see that little ‘jump’ in my stitching?

That’s what happens when a wild beast dog jumps onto your lap when you have the sewing machine going. Egh!

Gives it character I suppose. lol.


Is this owl not the cuuutest? He’s rockin’ those shades! As soon as I got my KOTM I just knew I would (eventually) use him.. He’s great for paper piecing!

The papers are a mix of a few different October Afternoon sets. Brads are October Afternoon Woodland Park.


And while I have you here, SVG Cuts released a NEW kit! This one is sure gonna be a rootin’ tootin’ good time! Check it out! It’s yours FREE this week with a purchase of $9.98 or more with the code FREEGIFT

Get the Happy Trails SVG Kit!

Yeah. That’s a 3D BOOT, folks!



OK, I’m outta here! Have a nice weekend! I’m gonna shine up ‘mah spurs and ride off into the sunset!

I really wish I had a cowskin print vest right now. *sad face*

Chalkin’ it up!

Happy Saturday! The first weekend of the new year! What are you all up to? Me.. crafting! Finishing up the last of my projects for CHA for Echo Park and Carta Bella. I’ve made several super cute things for the booths and I can’t wait to share!  Any of my blog reader friends going to CHA?

So, I got slightly sidetracked working on my CHA projects and decided to make a little ‘chalkboard’ card. I have seen these around here and there and love the look so of course I had to give it a try. How hard can it be? Slap some white ink onto a stamp and go to town on some black paper.

Eh.. not so much.

My Brilliance brand pigment ink is not so.. brilliant. It stamps on the black as a icky grey color. After a quick Google search trying to figure out why my white was not WHITE.. I learned that I should use craft ink. Well, whatever. I don’t have no stinkin’ craft ink! I ended up coming to terms with my inky issues and realized my muted white ‘chalk’ look wasn’t so bad afterall. It was my first try so it is what it is…

… And it’s a wanna-be cool chalkboard card. lol


What the heck is ‘craft ink’ anyways. Helllloooooo, people. I used my ‘regular’ ink on crafts.

Ink + crafts = craft ink. Am I missing something here? What kind of confuzzled mess is this world coming to? “No.. you need to use CRAFT ink..” “No.. not that ink you always use for CRAFTING”…”I mean REAL craft ink.. the crafty kind!”

Shut it! Just


*currently looking on Amazon for proper craft ink…* 


Anyhow, to give myself a littele more credit, it does look better in person! The ‘PARTY’ stamp looks fuzzy in the photo, but in person it’s pretty crisp and looks cute colored in!


So, if anyone wants to make a wanna-be chalkboard card like me with your non-’craft ink’ ink.. here’s some tips!

  • 1). Go buy proper craft ink


OK, really now.. All ya need is some white ink of some sort, light grey ink, a card base, black paper, stamps, and some colored pencils. I used white, pink, teal, and yellow. I really think the colored pencils added in give it a true chalkboard feel.

  • Start by laying out your stamps over the black cardstock so you can kinda see how you will fill in the gaps a bit. I didn’t really ‘cram’ stamps onto my card and it still looks cute!
  • Using a ruler and white colored pencil, create a border. I found it looks much cuter with a border.

  • Ink up your stamps and.. well.. STAMP! (Who woulda thought it, right?)
  • Let the ink dry and then add some little touches of color with colored pencils. I drew some confetti and ‘streamers’. Cute, cute!

  • Now you’ll add the ‘chalk dust’. The ‘dust’ looks better done with light grey ink. I did white at first and was like, “Did that just happen!? That looks like crud!” (I hate to start over on a project, so to show that card who was boss I had to rip it into a million pieces and slam it into the trash like yesterday’s scraps!)

I am pretty sure I just heard a loud ‘gasp’ from you..”this chick tosses her scraps?!!!!”

No, I really don’t. My kids usually steal them for their projects.


  • Use a sponge to lightly rub in some ink.. Be gentle.. the paper is sensitive you know.

Looks nifty!

That’s pretty much it! VERY simple and a funky-cool look! This would be fun for tags, etc. I secretly want to make a few more, but I have to keep priorities straight. Back to ‘work’ for me! CHA is coming up fast!


I hope you all have a great weekend! *waves*

Echo Park DT December blog hop!

Welcome to the Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop! Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from our latest collections. Be sure to follow the blog hop list below as you hop from one blog to the next. Return to the Echo Park Paper blog at any time for the next blogger on the list in case you get lost or confused! ONE winner will be selected from each blog to receive an Echo Park Paper collection kit of their choosing. To qualify for the kit, comments will be due by midnight EST, Sunday, December 23rd to qualify for the drawing. The winner will be announced on each blog Monday, December 24th so be sure to check back to see if you’ve won!


So, I have been sick over a week now and haven’t really been in the crafty mood. So this on is simple.. and this post is short and to the point (If you’re a regular reader of mine, you know I love to ramble, lol). I am FINALLY on the tail end of this sickness and am happily crafting and prepping for all the fun in store for the next week! Sooooo stinkin’ excited for Christmas! Santa went a bit crazy again… and I don’t care! Every year starting in October I give myself the good ‘ol.. “You WILL behave this Christmas. You will NOT go overboard” talk.. Pssssssh. I’ve come to realize this is just ‘me’ and it would take a darn near miracle for me to not be a crazed Christmas buffoon. My husband says he has accepted the crazy. LOL!

Anyhow, (I almost started rambling there for a minute, lol) I made this cute ‘present’ gift bag using Echo Park’s This & That Christmas. It’s VERY simple. I honestly wanted to do more, but it wasn’t happening. Still very cute and useful though!

Now, I have been designed for SVG Cuts for almost 2 years now (small break in that time, but still..) and I haven’t really given much look at this cute present bag in the Christmas Gift Bags & Boxes SVG Kit until recently. I have used that star bag SEVERAL times though! So it was something ‘new’ for me. I actually have another version of this bag that I need to finish. At his rate, it might not be until after Christmas though, lol. I need to get busy baking soon.. Mmmm.. cookies before crafting!


Before I send you off to the next blog, I wanted to share these cute tags using the Happy Holidays mini theme!

Totally cute, right? I love how the journaling cards made perfect tag bases!


Annnd.. one last thing. A recent Winter Wishes project! This one is a FREE PDF download HERE. This one is great for a gift giving! I got my cute little tin pail at the Dollar Tree.


OK, friends.. time to send you off to Linda’s blog!


Here’s the blog list in case you’re lost.

*waves* see ya later!

A TREE-mendous tree card!

Hello! Happy Monday!

I’m just doing a quickee card share today. Hoping not to start my blabbering and randomness since I have things I should be doing other than blogging. What?… No.. that’s not my son you hear asking for lunch. Must be the neighbors parrot or sumthin’.


Just between you and me.. my neighbors don’t have a parrot.


Anyhow, I had this little idea for a ‘branch’ tree card for awhile.. like.. a whole 3 days. lol. It looked cute in my mess of a head so I was excited to try it out.. and what-do-ya-know.. it came out pretty cute! Very quick and easy to make, too!

I just used the little branch from SVG Cuts ‘Spirits of Christmas Past SVG Kit’ (in the extras folder) and made various sizes. I lightly glued them into position and then stitched down the center to create the tree. Neat-o! *high five*

The papers are from Simple Stories ‘Handmade Holiday’ and the stamps are Lawn Fawn (snowman and snowflakes) and Unity (sentiment).

Isn’t that snowman adorbs?.. I want him life sized in my house!


That’s it!

Wow.. “Hey, Ma! Look at me… finished a blog post without causing my readers finger cramps from scrolling!”

I feel like I need to say something else.. it’s tooooo shoooooort…

*crickets chirping*

*whack.. whack.. whack.. *

No.. I’m not whacking at you.. I’m whacking at all the crickets that are hanging around in here! Get on outta here you crickets with your big heads and weird skinny legs!

Holy moley.. seriously, Tamara?! You haven’t blogged since October 19th?..  *hands head* Major blogger fail.


If anyone is still around here, I am SO sorry to have neglected my blog. I got a few “Are you alive” comments/emails and I’m here to say.. yes, I AM alive. (Well, as alive I can be without any coffee in me yet)… So I guess that would be more like, I am here.. but I’m totally a zombie. Braaaaaaains.

So, what HAVE I been doing if I haven’t been hanging around my blog entertaining you all?.. Well, let’s just say I have been busy and just ‘mentally’ tied up. I had a rough mid/end of October and early November but I brushed the crafty funk away and have projects in the works and it feels goooood! Life sometimes gets in the way, ya know? It can’t always been crafting, fun times, wearing underware on your head, and coffee.. lol.


Anyhow, I have a few things to share! Just some cute cards I have created for Echo Park.. my paper lover. Most of you might have seen these on EP’s blog.. but I love ‘em, so they need to be on my blog, too!

First up is a 3D ‘tree’ card created with This & That ‘Christmas’ collection. This collection is just SO beautiful! I think this card came out really cute. That woodgrain paper is so lovely!

If you want to give this ‘cone’ tree technique a try, I made up a little (and perfectly pin-able) tutorial!



1). Cut 3-4 circles. My largest circle was about 3 – 3.25″. Make each additional circle slightly smaller than the previous one. Fold circles in half to create a ‘guide’ line.

2). Open up circle and using the guidelines you folded, add a very thin line of glue. Adhere together on opposite ends along the folded line.

3). Pinch and fold into a cone shape (photo does not show my circle adhered, so you could do it without step #2, but it does help it fold nicer and more evenly)

4). Repeat with all your circles and then adhere/layer them into each other like shown. Then adhere to your card, layout, etc.! Super easy and a great way to add dimension!

If you give this a go, I’d love for you to share it on my FACEBOOK WALL! I always love to see your projects inspired by my work.


Now here’s a very sweet little shaker card using Echo Park’s mini theme, ‘Happy Holidays’ I LOVE the colors and stickers in this theme and wish it was a full collection. I can’t get enough! I created this card by creating a scalloped oval die cut window with a sheet of acetate and glitter behind it. Creates a fun wintery scene with the tree stickers. I added a cluster of embellishments with buttons, stickers, and twine! My favorite! I love to jumble things together and didn’t realize I did that until Mary (From SVG Cuts) pointed it out.. then I was like, oh yeah! I am a total cluster-er. lol!

I just love those little candy stickers! I topped them with a round Epiphany Crafts epoxy sticker.


Since I am on the topic of Echo Park, did you SEE the new collection? Are you feeling the ‘love’?… I know I am! Can’t wait to get my hands on this pretty collection. This collection will also have embellishments! Such a treat! Click HERE to view the full collection!


And let’s not forget PHOTO FREEDOM! I just got done with my assignment using the ‘Dear Santa’ kit. I gotta admit, I was a little ‘worried’ because this is something I’ve never done before. Did I mention layouts and the like scare me? lol. Buuuut, I DID it! I even enjoyed it! I can see how this kind of ‘scrapbooking’ is becoming so popular now. It’s EASY! Slide some pre-made images in the sleeves, add in some photos and a bit of embellishing and ta-da! Awesomeness! If you follow me on my INSTAGRAM you might have seen a few peeks of my work.  I can’t wait to share them with you all! There’s a NEW free idea book out to show you ways to use the Photo Freedom kits! Check it out!

Alrighty, peeps! Time to head off of here! Thanks so much for stopping by and I am happy to be ‘back in action’.

Now.. time for that coffee.. at.. oh.. 3:30pm. GAH!

Pebbles guest designer – YAY!

** Looking for the Carta Bella blog hop? Scroll down through this post, or click HERE! **


I am way too excited for today! I have all sorts of pretties to share! (Hop on over to the Carta Bella blog hop post, too! I have a giveaway happening over there!) I have been busy over here creating some projects for Pebbles! I was contacted and asked if I would make some goodies to share with their blog readers.. of course I said yes! When my box came I did a little happy dance because I LOVE both collections, especially Tricks & Treats! I ended up ordering even more after seeing it in person. I have two other projects to share using that collection, but I need to finish them up first.

Before I share my projects, I want to mention that Pebbles is having a giveaway today on their blog along with my post! Raise your hand if you like free stuff! *raises hand*.. so get on OVER THERE and leave a comment!


Ready for some Treats?… What about some Tricks?… What about some Tricks & Treats? First up is this super cool card! I LOVE how this came out and I REALLY wanted to do a video to show how I made it, but that will have to wait. My house isn’t exactly quiet much. Mama needs a studio… and it would have to be at least a mile away. Right now I have a tiny shoebox craft room and it’s between two kids rooms… sometimes they think this room is THEIR personal art room.. No.. No, monster children, it’s not… and dag nabbit, stop cutting paper with mommy’s fabric scissors!

So, here’s my trick or treat bag card! I saw the round stickers on the sticker sheet and thought, “Hey.. lollipops!” and with that.. a card was born.

Go on.. I’ll let you tell me how stinkin’ cute this it! I wrapped some cellophane around them and tied ‘em up with some Trendy Twine! The little bag was made very easily.. and I promise I will get a tutorial or video up as soon as I can!

How ya like them there lollipops??


Moving on to a simple little gift box. I had something else planned to share, but decided to post this one instead! This gift box was made using the Gimme Candy Boxes SVG Kit from SVG Cuts! I didn’t change anything, simply opened the file in my eCal software and cut it with my Sizziz eclips ! Easy peasy!

Little touch of wire, burlap and a Spooky Cuties SVG Cuts bat, and you’re done!

I added an Epiphany Crafts epoxy sticker to the ‘Eeek’ circle.. just to add some snazz. I’m all about the snazz… and pizazz… and (some) jazz… and being a spazz (most def.)… and..

OK.. I will shut it now.

Don’t wanna make you… mazz… (LOL *snort*. Instead of ‘mad’.. ‘mazz’.. Get it? I got jokes, peeps… I got jokes. I’m available for all your entertainment needs. You know where to fnd me.)


Next up is another cool project! I have been keeping these bottles around for awhile and the Tricks & Treats collection was PERFECT for them! My favorite part? The Thickers! Mmmmmm! Love me some Thickers! Add some glitter to them? Even bet-tah!

So fun! They look great on my table as a decoration. I filled them up with gumballs!

Wouldn’t those be so cool to give as a gift?  They would be cute sitting on a teacher’s desk!


Next up is sweet little card. I was also sent Walnut Grove to work with, It’s really beautiful! I love the colors in it.


It’s pretty simple.. and kinda ‘pops’ with the bright coral colored ribbon and dark background. I added some buttons over the daisy stickers which I thought were a cute little touch.  Everything’s cuter with a button! (Off to glue a million buttons to myself..)


Thank you so much for stopping by! Follow me on FACEBOOK if you don’t already! I’m creepin’ up to 3,000 followers and for some reason that’s quite exciting for lil ‘ol me!

A HUGE thank you to Pebbles for having me! It’s been fun and I hope I’ve shown Pebbles off well!


Don’t forget.. Head over to the PEBBLES BLOG to enter the GIVEAWAY!! You know you want some beautiful Pebbles product to play with!

Have I mentioned I love the SVG Cuts SpoOOOoky Cuties collection? I have used it quite a few times now.. have a few projects in the works/not posted using them, too! LOVE THEM!

I made this very cute and simple card set in no time at all!

I can’t stand this cuteness! lol! How can you not smile when you see Frankie?

For this project I used some Pebbles Tricks & Treats polka dot paper and AC solid cardstock. The flair is from the always awesome Paper Play Studio, stamp sentiments from My Thoughts Exactly, and the yummy twine is from Trendy Twine!

Loves, love, loves it! *hearts fluttering away towards rainbows and bright sun rays… birds chirping*

I know some special little trick or treaters I will be giving these to!

For FULL details and sizing, etc. Visit the SVG Cuts blog! Everything was cut using eCal software with my Sizzix eclips cutter.


I gotta say, I get in this midset that I need to make ’bigger’ things for SVG Cuts that sometimes I forget smaller projects can be fun and inspiring, too!  Think of all the fun shaped cards you can make! I truly just had ‘fun’ making these!

Great Impressions Stamps and Echo Park Paper DT blog hop!

Lookie who it is! JUST who I’ve been waiting for.. YOU! *waves*


Welcome to the Great Impressions Stamps/Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop! Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team and Great Impressions Stamps Design Team are showcasing projects from our latest collections. Be sure to follow the blog hop list below as you hop from one blog to the next. ONE winner will be selected from EACH blog to receive an Echo Park Paper collection kit of their choosing, and a set of two stickable stamps from Great Impressions Stamps.   To qualify for the kit and stamps, comments will be due by midnight EST, Sunday, October 21st to qualify for the drawing. The winner will be announced on each blog Monday, October 22nd so be sure to check back to see if you’ve won. (Mine may be a day or two late..) I am also going to throw in this flair collection from my shop, Paper Play Studio! This has been one of my best sellers, it’s beaaaautiful!

If you’ve just stumble upon my blog, you will want to start at the top of this blog hop list! You don’t want to miss any projects, right? Let’s not forget the multiple chances to WIN!



I had a lot of fun working with these cute stamps from Great Impressions Stamps! They are GREAT quality and stamp very clean, as I am sure you’ve noticed from the designers before me! I used Echo Park Paper’s ‘This and That Christmas’.. So just by using those stamps and that paper, it’s automatically a kick butt project!.. Right? *nods*

I made a cute card and gift box set! I think my blog name should be ‘Happy Life, allimakeisboxes’. LOL. If you are a regular around here you know how I love me some packaging. I always have a gift or treat to give.. yet when it comes time to giving, I don’t wanna give out my ‘cool’ stuff, lol.


Here’s my project! Ooooh… Ahhhhh… Ahhh-chooo! (sorry that sneeze snuck in there.. )

Awww, yuh! Not bad for a last minute project, eh.. ehhhhh?… Go me! (Totally was busy this past week/weekend and had to get a project done the day before this hop started.. got this lovely set done in about 1.5hrs… Two points for me!)

Not sure what the ‘points’ are all about.. but it sounded good.

100 points to you for being here! You can get yourself a giant sticky ‘slap hand with that! (You know.. all those cheap crud toys that are worth five cents.. yet you spend $20 in tickets for it? lol)


Anyhow, check out the cute dark brown snowflake stamps on the woodgrain paper! It’s so subtle.. unlike myself.

This darling gift box was created by cutting the ‘glove box’ file from SVG Cuts ‘Mothers Garden’ SVG Kit! It’s fabulous and a perfect size! (although I switched up the top and added in stars in my eCal cutting software)  This would be great for cookies, etc.

I think I say ALL my packaging ideas are great for treats and cookies.. LOL. Soooomebody likes treats!

Really though.. what else can I say?

“This is the perfect box for your gum wrappers, nose hair trimmings, and used toothpicks!”

Yeah. Treats it is!

This card is ‘the card the wasn’t suppose to be’… I was stamping on a Canvas bag and felt like a turd. I JUST made some canvas stamped bags and my regular blog readers might start to get bored with me. “Hey, Tamara.. While you’re stamping on that 100,000th canvas bag, why don’t ya shove your head it in?.. Booooring”. So, to prevent this, I cut up the bag and slapped it onto a card base after I frayed the edges and stitched around them. Add on some ribbon, button, brad, and a sticker.. why.. You have yourself a cool and unique card! Yes.. I amaze myself! I love when things just ‘happen’. I thought the card needed something with it, so while resisting the urge to stamp 20,001 more canvas bags for my project, I made the gift box.

Are you tired of my rambling yet? I am sure you’d loooove me to ramble on for days, but I have some trash TV ‘reality’ shows calling me from my DVR… “Taaaaaamara.. come watch us so you can feel better about yourself” I can choose from Hoarders, or New Jersey Housewives. lol. Both? Me thinks so!

I will now send ya off to Jennifer I am sure she will have some lovely stamped yumminess for you!

And since I am soooo close to my 3,000 followers on FACBOOK.. will you please come ‘like’ me if you wanna be a cool kid? It’s true.. My followers are the coolest around! Dooo iiiiiit! *smiles* I promise not to sneeze on you anymore.

Feel free to pin my project! My green ‘pin it’ link is not working, but you can use that snazzy gray/red one! THANKS!
