TMS 8 and some friends...

Well, I am back to work, and the first few weeks of school are always the most difficult to get adjusted to. Now I need to be a little more creative about combining some challenges to get it all done, which is what I have done here. Tuesday Morning Sketches tossed out a color challenge to use light green, eggplant, and kraft colors. Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii and KJKC challenge thread wanted us to button it up with buttons. Over at The Diva Stamper, we were presented with a sketch. Cute Card Thursdays wanted us to start over, with a theme of "New Beginnings"-- like babies, a new car, house, job, etc. I chose babies, as we have 4 prego ladies on a staff of 50 (yes, we all are aware not to drink any water at work!). Stampin for the Weekend also wanted babies. C is for circles at ABC Challenges. Yep, I think that is it, 7 this time!

Cardstock: light green, eggplant, kraft, white; DCWV printed papers
Ink: SU! lovely lilac
Stamps: SU! bold butterfly (flowers); SU! So many scallops
Accessories/Tools: 1/16" hole punch; crop-a-dile; dimensional tape; Making Memories large metal buttons; 5/8" satin eggplant ribbon
