Happy Thursday everyone!! Today is another Divine Diva Challenge and Lori sent this inspiration:

Yes..this is in the tropics. This is a picture of a hotel that Lori will be staying at. Lucky girl!! I am away but not there. Boo hoo. I am upstate New York visiting my parents in the boonies where it is even colder than home. Now what's up with that? Should have rethought my time away....just is great spending time with family and I have been looking forward to this! is my take on the challenge:

When I was looking through my stamps and papers, I did not see any palm trees or pools or chairs, or I was inspired by the bright blue tile in the pool and the leaves. I decided to make a "keeper box" using the template from Leigh Ann Baird and little 3x3 note cards.

stamps: Sketch an event, Forest Friends, God's Beauty all from SU
Paper: White and SU Pacific Point DP
Accessories: Ribbon, silver baubles, piercer, victoria embossing folder, script embossing folder, little leaves sizzix die, button
Template for Keeper Box from Leigh Ann Baird

Our Creative Corner- Something old from your stash- Sketch an event stampset- I don't think I have used in 3 years
Totally Papercrafts Challenge- buttons and bows
Allsorts Challenge: 1,2,3- 1 button on my box, 2 colors, 3 papers (Pacific Point, white , Pacific point dp)

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:


Hope you are inspired to come and play along. Just leave a comment here with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on SCS will be DDIC22. Have fun!!

Thanks for stopping by and for all your sweet comments!! Have a great day!
