I finally finished my wreath for Style School. Instead of doing the transparency flowers (mainly in part because I didn't have any transparency papers) I decided to make my own felt flowers. I also wanted to dabble some more into embroidery. I used lots of bright colors that would match my craft room. It came out really cute. All of it was cut out and hand stitched from the flowers, to the leaves, to the hanger. Of course I incorporated some buttons :)

I also did 2 more Style File pages. You can see my other pages here. I found I have a lot of wardrobe pages, almost double all my others. I still have about 4 more pages planned. I think I'm going to need a bigger binder, hehe. I plan on starting another Style School project as soon as the Valentine's Day cards are made for the swap.
I had the Grease song stuck in my head when I named this one.. hehe
Here are the last bit of Sweet Treat photos. I will be pulling a winner late tonight or early in the morning. I wanted to do a live video chat pull but didn't organize one in time. Maybe I can convince some of my awesome friends to join in while I pull one? :D
Britney's favorite treat is a cupcake, doesn't that look yummy?
Courtney took a different approach and got very creative with the Sweet Treat idea. Here is a quote to go with the picture she sent me :) "I think its always a treat to get to see the pretty colors that fall brings us. Its a treat to know all my favorite holidays and time of year is just upon us, and its a treat to be able to go out with my family as much as I possibly can before the weather gets cold!"
Kym sent me a picture of the Halloween cupcakes she made last year as her favorite Sweet Treat. She did a great job!
My next post will be lots of fun stuff too!! I'll announce the giveaway winner, pictures of what have been keeping me super busy (in a good busy way) and the awesome print and collage Jamie sent me that I made my own matting for.
What did you do this weekend?
P.S. I want to thank everyone for leaving me sweet thoughts on my posts, it's so awesome to see that people read my thoughts and look at my projects :) I appreciate each and every one of your comments, they make my day :)
