Happy Birthday Bugs and Fishes

Back on August 1st at our Prettie Pajama Party, one of the challenges I issued was to make a 3D item of your choice. I have been wanting to make a milk carton since Beate's tutorial came out, and this was the perfect opportunity. I used the Bugs and Fishes set from Paper Pretties. I filled this cute little box with Skittles (Savannah's idea) and added it to the birthday gift for my niece this past weekend. I thought it was perfect for her "pool party."

There's a Back to School Sale going on at Paper Pretties! EVERYTHING in the Paper Pretties Boutique is eligible - you can even shop from the SALE category and receive the specials!

From Friday August 15th until August 31st:
-When you spend $25 in the Paper Pretties Boutique, you can choose any one of the Paper Pretties' sentiments for free.
-When you spend $50 you can choose a Paper Pretties' sentiment and a roll of American Crafts ribbon.
-When you spend $100 - you can choose a Paper Pretties' sentiment, a roll of American Crafts ribbon and you'll get FREE SHIPPING!!!

When you check out, simply leave a note in the comments box noting which sentiment and which ribbon you'd like and Christie will make sure it gets put in your order! Orders over $100 will automatically not be charged shipping.

So, think about what new toys you'd like to play with to keep your mind off your little darlings when they go back to school! Happy shopping! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Bugs and Fishes (Paper Pretties); Paper- Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point (SU), white (Georgia-Pacific); Ink- Ony Black (Versafine); Accessories- paper piercer, Copic markers, brads (Making Memories), polka dot organdy ribbon (May Arts)
