My Time Made Easy At JUGs with a Sneak Peek or two!

Wow...I feel all giddy as I post this! As you may have read in a past post about my AWE with Lauren's stuff...mostly her AH-MAZING templates and FABULICIOUS talent... Well I'm giddy because I get to work with some of her new stuff being released on Monday, February 1st! Just a day before my birthday! So Happy Birthday To Me! LOL!

Ok you guys...this template if tons of fun because the dress up posibilities are endless! Since it's close to Valentines Day...I made mine a love box! :D OMG and not to mention the cute Critters With Heart stamps ALSO releasing on the 1st at the My Time Made Easy shop... Miss Lauren is a proud momma to!

So this weeks challenge is sponsored by none other than Lauren and has some SWEET BLOG CANDY! She has a $25 gift certificate to the MTME store to one of our participants! Awesome right? You may want to use it to get some of her stamps, templates, or maybe some digital paper put together by both Lauren AND our JUGs girl Kristin!

We (the DT) are each suppose to create a project using the template Happy Mail (releasing 2/01) AND use the stamp set Critters with Heart (also releases 2/01). Here is what I came up with! I tried using Kristin's DP but OMG my ink is so low...I'm resorting to rubber right now...lol. So no digi stuff for me for a bit. I used the CUTE raccoon who just happens to be a heart thief! Notice the jailhouse stripes? LOL! He's got all the stolen hearts captured in the Happy Mail box! I stamped him 3 times to get the desired dimension and surrounded him with flowers (I think he's trying to hide?)! This little box is fully functionable and SO easy to assemble!

Well...that's it for me! Hope to see you play along (details below) and make sure to check out what the AMAZING design team has in store for you! I can't express how thankful I am for being part of their AMAZING team. January is almost over...BUT I will most definitely not forget my time with JUGs! After this Saturday I only have one more Saturday left :(. Thanks again ladies! You're all gems!

Now...in order for you to participate...Lauren has a FREEBIE template you can download called Cutesy Cover to use for your creation OR you can also play along with a template of your own...just make it 3D. Hope you play along with us this week! If you do, leave a link to your creation at the JUGs challenge blog under Mr. Linky!

Freaking adorable Gab! OH MY I love that racoon with his heart all a glitter :-) Your colors are divine and those floral accents made me SWOON - what a BEAUTIFUL gift box - even with nothing in it. We are indeed lucky to have you playing along with JUGS this month as our Featured Designer - you have proven yourself MOST worthy of the title. Hope you're feeling a little more relaxed and that life is going well.
Hugs! (Can you feel the excitement from CHA from your house?!?!?)
