My Time Made Easy Release Day: A Little Bit S'more!

 Hello sweet friends and welcome to my lil 'ol bloggity blog today!  I am beyond excited to share a little something I recently created for today's June My Time Made Easy Release!  Sit back, relax and enjoy peeking!!!

 Introducing ... TRENDY TURTLE!

Yes, another out-of-the-box project for me today ... when I first saw this sweet template, the immediate thing that came to my mind are my beloved hydrangea bushes that are happily living throughout my yard!  They are my very favorite flower in the entire world, so I was tickled to convert the shell of the turtle into a hydrangea bloom ... LOVE!!!

Just look at this pretty lady in her full bloom glory!

After I assembled the turtle shell, I punched some scalloped circles in two different sizes, crumpled them up to soften and give the illusion of a flower petal and adhered a tiny white satin flower in the center of each flower.  All the flower blooms were attached to the shell base to create one 'snowball' hydrangea bloom!  Next I printed a sheet of Aqua Picnic from the S'more S'mores paper set and die cut a butterfly, added pearls and trinket pins and ... viola!!

For the coordinating card, I stamped a sentiment using the Monograms Defined acrylic set and die cut another smaller butterfly using the Aqua Picnic sheet from the S'more S'mores collection again.

The smaller hydrangea bloom and leaves on my card were created using punches from McGill. The dimension on this project is incredible!!

 And there you have it my stampy friends ... a lovely little project and something a bit unexpected!

Please be sure to stop by each of the teamies' blogs today to check out their projects for the Release Party today:

And don't forget that there is always lots of lovely inspiration in the My Time Made Easy DESIGNER'S GALLERY!

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll have another new project to share with you tomorrow, so please come back for a little look-sie!  Until then, happy stamping!
