Shopping our Stash #85 - Suits ME to a T!


This week at Shopping our Stash we want you to dig into your stash and use at least 2 items that begin with the letter T: tag, tape, twine, trees, tinsel, tattered angels products, tin foil, tin cans, trim, tea bag, tea cup, tomahawk, tangerine, tigers, turtle,  etc.  Be sure to list what they are in your post!

I was all full of ideas until I sat down. ACK! And then, I spied this little turtle, and it went from there.

Supplies: turtle & butterfly stickers from Penny Black; grass die cut from (I think) K&Co; label, tag, and papers from Kaisercraft; Timeless Twine; polka-dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug. 

I've also used the sketch from Seize the Birthday's first challenge, with the feminine twist (linky open until noon today!):

This Shopping our Stash challenge is open until Monday January 21st.  Don't forget to check out what everyone else has been up to!
