Monday Hop ~ Relax!

Happy Labor Day and welcome to EAD Designs Monday Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the fabulous Julie Ranea.  If you just popped by to see me please head over to EAD's blog for the start. Be sure to leave a comment along the way so you can be eligible for this week's giveaway!  The hop doesn't officially start til 8am MST.
 
Last night when I was getting ready to write my post, I realized that I didn't take pictures of my project.  No biggie, the natural light was still good...but then I couldn't find my CF card for my camera, which was most likely in my card reader.  I knew I used it on Saturday, but that was it.  At this point I'm beginning to panic...the sun in going down!  No light! No Camera!  Now what?  Then I realized what my card said...RELAX!  I smiled to myself and thought "well I guess I could use my cell phone".  So that's what I did, and you know, they aren't that bad!  When I made the card I was thinking, last day of summer,(so to speak) and Labor Day not don't panic!  I still haven't found my CF card or my reader, but it will show up...when I'm not looking!  That's just how it works.  :)
 
 
I use a die to cut the burlap!

The stickerz are on clear background, so by putting them on a sandy color cardstock it gives them a softer look.

I hope you have a beautiful day, we plan to visit friends out of town!

Enjoy!
