Hey good looking!

Happy Friday, friends! This morning we woke up to 5” of heavy, wet spring snow… just two days after my son was wearing shorts to school. The snow is expected to melt by this afternoon, with temps forecasted in the upper 50s. Aaaahhh, spring in Colorado. There’s nothing quite like it!

It’s been a busy few weeks, but I found some time to play with my March Lucky Girl kit – Homemade Happiness. I finished up a few little projects I had created with the Echo Park loveliness in the kit, creating this card with a hand-cut & embellished apron plus a little cupcake box – all from the scraps I had left over from my layout projects!

I can’t believe how many projects I was able to get out of one kit. A total of EIGHT fully embellished layouts, four cards and the cupcake box – seriously a steal for just $29.99! I even have a few extra goodies left for other projects, too. Being thrifty always makes me smile! There’s even a few of the kits left in the store – hurry and grab yours today before they’re gone!

Anyhow - I used scraps from this layout and this layout to create everything here.

My apron was trimmed from the reverse side of the Echo Park - For the Record "Stamp of Approval" paper - that beautiful red pattern was perfect for it! After hand-cutting out my little apron, I embellished it with one of the Echo Park - For the Record "Noteworthy" journal spots that I trimmed down for the front pocket, a little of the black pom pom trim from the kit, and some ricrac and stitched grosgrain from my stash. The apron turned out so cute, I wish it was real so I could have it!

The little box was done with the scraps from the Echo Park - For the Record "Tablecloth" paper I used on my "What I Like Best" layout. I added a little American Crafts ribbon and assorted little flowers. The flag was also from the Echo Park - For the Record "Noteworthy" paper, and was added onto a toothpick with some fun green flowers for a cake topper.
I hope your weekend treats you sweetly!

Such a cute pair! Loved the layouts you linked as well. Wanted to add, my daughter now lives in Denver and can't believe how much better the weather there is than here in the midwest!!! No snow for her though! Hope your melts soon!!
