I'm feeling inspired!

Remember when I said I overbought in an effort to get a certain hostess stamp set? I must confess that I have been so overwhelmed by all of my new toys that it has been very distracting! I have been so excited that I feel like everything has a sort of 'Oh man!'...ok...that is as in 'what the heck was she thinking' 'oh man'....not the 'oh man...that rocks!'...

I am calming down a bit. Trying to pace myself. Trying not to think about everything all at once. This is rather difficult for me. The stuff is so darn cute! I am so excited about everything.

Well almost everything....that brings me to the Azure paper again. I got this little box at Michaels sometime ago....do you know how many things I have laying around here waiting for a chance to be altered! I really haven't had the patience to do any of these as I have only had a few minutes it seems like lately for much of anything!

Anyway, I pulled out a retired stamp set that is in my box of 'sale' items and paired it with the Azure paper on this little box and viola...granted this is EPLS (easy peasy lemon squeezy) but I still think it's kind of cute....

So there it is....I think this is such a cute container and now I might like the paper...although, it matches nothing in my house...

Back on the subject of being inspired...I came up with a really...well, what I hope to be a really cute box...it's for Halloween. I am going to work on it. Beate has posted her weekend sketch challenge and I am really excited by an idea I have for this one.

First, clean the house...Second, cut and score card stock for camp....Third, card swap...Finally, MY stuff! Looking forward to everything this weekend...except for the cleaning part!

Take care and I will post you soon!

The basket is beautiful! Great papers to go with it. I love your blog title as I'm a Buck to...well I married into it (smile). We have a sign in our living area that says "The Buck Stops Here" so I don't know why I didn't come up with your clever title. Have a super day and thanks for sharing all your beautiful work.
