long weekend and project peeks...

21 May 2009

I'm outta here!
I am taking my baby and we're escaping for the weekend for a much-needed break (thank you, honey!) and to visit some family that haven't even met this little guy yet~

I'm very, very excited. (can you tell?)
I wanted to share some lovelies though~Can I tell you how much I love it when you send me your projects you've been inspired to try for yourself?

Take a look at:

Lori's framed keys:

Michelle's chalkboard:

Carrie's cutest t-shirts ever:

Thanks for letting me share them, and if you have one, send it my way!
In case you missed them, here are my versions, but quite frankly, I think I like the above ones better:
