Gift Set and Some Updates!

Hello! First of all...thanks so much for all the birthday wishes that were left here, on Facebook and in my email and mailbox yesterday.  I was so overwhelmed.  I really felt special!

Next,  I am sad to say that my design team term with Lori Whitlock AND with Helmar Inc. is up at the end of this month.  I decided not to reapply to either team because summer is quickly approaching and I will have the kids home and we have lots of fun things planned.  In the fall, all the kids will be in school all day so I am clinging to this time.   I am sad but I can say that I LOVED being part of both teams and, although I won't officially be on the teams, I will still be a big promoter/cheerleader of them.

Today is my last post for both teams.  You can see my Helmar post up on the Helmar Blog.  
Here is my Lori Whitlock project:

I just adore the little milk carton box that Lori created so I decided to use that to create a card and treat holder:

I used Note to Self Collection (Echo Park, designed by Lori Whitlock) on both:
Here is a close up of the treat holder.  I just love how quickly it came together.  THIS is such a fun/easy way to give some treats or buttons/ ribbons or a gift:

Special thanks to Lori Whitlock and Helmar for allowing me to be a part of your teams.  xoxo

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great one!

I will miss seeing your DT projects but I hope you have a fabulous summer with your kids!! :)

Love your gift set today!! Awesome!!

LOVE that milk carton!!! I can understand about drawing back a little, I don't think most of us realize how much time is involved being on a design team...I have enough trouble keeping up my own little blog and my kids are grown and gone.....enjoy the kiddos, they grow up and leave the nest way too fast!!

Fabulous projects, Carolyn!!!
Glad you had a great birthday too :)

Great milk carton and card, Cammie! Love the sentiment on both. You've been such an asset to both teams. I know they will miss you. But you only have your kids for a short time. They grow up too fast. Enjoy the time you have with them!

Happy Belated Birthday, Cammie!!

Bummed that I won't be seeing your Lori Whitlock designs on a regular basis, but I know how that family balance plays in.

Love the milk carton and the card is adorable as well!
