Blue milk?!?

as in blue milk cartons.... =D Happy Friday!!! i'm well aware of the hour this is posting, and i was suppose to have this ready by midnight, but i just had to watch the Royal Wedding!! did you?! BEAUTIFUL!!! that was truly a fairytale come true... oh and did you see Pippa's dress?? LOVE IT!! too bad i don't have the body to wear something like that... HAHA!

anyway, as little birthday present to myself, i finally ordered the SU! mini milk carton die from my GF Brenda, and was itching to create something with it.... didn't have the time to really play with it since arriving earlier this month... and well, since boy's day is around the corner, i wanted to have something for sale at the craft fair for the boys' too.... so i made a few of these...

blue mini milk cartons filled with flavored hard candies... i created a simple band to go around the carton using white CS and goldfish printed washi paper... generated the sentiment on the computer and cut them out using nesties... since the candies are not small enough to be poured out the spout, i decided to leave the top open and secured it closed by punching holes and adding ribbon... pretty simple huh?!

i'm not use to creating "boy" gifts as i have more intuition to create girly things... but i better get use to it since i now have a lil' boy in my family... =D oh and hubby put up the lil' man's carp the other day!! we finally have one at our house.... i've always wanted to hang one....

with so much to share and not enough time to do it, i figured why not share another creation made for the craft fair...

here are some notepads i've decorated by adding a cover to... like i said before, i forgot how time consuming working with the HKs are, but really worth the results.... this Aloha HK sizzix die is my FAVE and she is so fun to dress up! i've also added a HK charm to the ribbon... very simple layouts with some embossing and all of the papers are glittered....

okie dokes! time for me to end it here... THANK YOU again for leaving such beautiful comments!! i love reading them and i love sharing with you!! so come back tomorrow for a another sharing!
