I love Pinterest!

There you go. I said it. I LOVE Pinterest. I log in almost every day to see what's new. I've done some exercises I found on the site. I've cooked some food and I've made some crafts that I found on there. I've pinned things I want to do to my house and things I want to do to my yard. I've also pinned my favorite animals and some cute clothes.

I have 2 nieces and 1 nephew that will be graduating from highschool this year. So where did I go for gift and decoration ideas? Pinterest of course. My first simple but cute project was originally found on the www.splitcoaststampers.com website. I used some paper scraps, brads and Hershey's Nuggets.

My nieces school colors are blue and gold so those are the colors I used. I made a few of them and will put them on a table in a heart shaped candy dish.

After finishing the candies I also made a banner. I didn't see this on Pinterest. I'm sure if I had looked I could have gotten some banner ideas that are cuter, but I wanted to keep it simple. I made rosettes, layered some scrap paper on top of them with a money print and then added my nieces name. I cut out the letters with the Winter Woodland cartridge.

And the last picture I have to share today is of my little helper.

I'm still working on a few other things. As soon as I have them done I will post some pictures. I ran into a little snag with one of them. I need to pick up some more lollipops before I can finish it.

Catch ya later,

Blessed are the children of scrapbookers, for they shall inherit the scrapbooks.
