I am so blessed............my hubby is taking the kids and I on a wonderful vacation beginning this Thursday......here is the kicker....hehe...the kids think we are going to Oregon...a gorgeous little state right above us, somewhere we have been before...and somewhere we have talked about going back to....BUT....my hubby got the "Let's search for a travel deal bug..." and instead we are going to...... Can you guess??? I can't give it away just yet...but I'll be back with lots of pretty photos by the end of the month! It's been killing me keeping this secret..........sigh!!!!
In the meantime, I have been loading up the shop....with new button assortments, and 8 gorgeous colors of Bazzill's paper flowers........Candle Yellow, Red Kisses, Orange Creamsicle, Parakeet Green, Chocolate Brown, French Vanilla Cream, Petunia Pink, and Brisbane Lavender!
Check them out here in the Scrapbook Embellishment Section of the shop!
Here are the individual links for the ones pictured here in this post:
These flowers are a perfect size, 1 1/2" wide...just put a button into the center, and your paper crafts are embellished! :)

I loved this kit!! "Surf City" was such a joy to work with, so many pretty bright papers and embellishments, and yet, flip over the paper to just the right side, and you could really get a wonderful old time vintage beach look too. Loving the My Little Shoebox chipboard letters!! Here is a layout I created with the kit............my son and my nephew out in the warm sun at our favorite little spot at Carlsbad beach.....how spoiled are we? :)
Check out Terri's June Kits here at the Color Me Miki site............
and check out what my friend and partner in Best Bettie Craziness, Erin, did with BOTH kits during her guest designer gig for Color Me Miki... here at her blog.....scroll on down to the May 31st post!! She ROCKED BOTH KITS fiercely!!
This was the last month I am "officially" designing for Color Me Miki...........it makes me so sad, but I'll still be around "unofficially", naming kits when begged...hehe....and working with the super shabby chic ones, cuz I just shab chic really easily! ;) THANK YOU, TERRI! It was the best DT gig ever!! :)

I thoroughly enjoyed creating some luxe gift tags for my Little Red Cottage.....Just tie these sweeties onto the handle of a gift bag, and you are set to go to a birthday party or shower! I found some wonderfully colored shipping tags, and they are a great size, 6"x3", so there is plenty of room to do all the things I love to do...layer patterned paper, layered die cuts, fabric, ribbon, sewing on buttons....oh..Thank You, Miss Frog Feathers, aka Blonde Bettie, for showing me how to use my sewing machine to sew on buttons...wow, that was one terrific sewing lesson!! :)
These tags are all one-of-a-kind, so if you like 'em, snag them up! Baseball Bettie has already snagged up the darling pink and green one............there are currently three in the SCRAPBOOKS EMBELLISHMENTS section of my Little Red Cottage.................don't delay, go check them out!
