Jugs again and again

I am so glad that I found the JUGS blog a few weeks back! I just love them!!! This week’s challenge was an incredible sketch challenge! I have been making Lauren’s Tucked Away timeless templates….. My mom has a monthly luncheon and she asked me to make 12 of them. I thought, no big deal. 12 is nothing! Trying to come up with different design ideas for each template is proving difficult, but I am having fun trying to come up with ideas! I want to go ahead and get hers done for her so I can start on my Christmas cards. I have already made a few of them here and here. Lisa Johnson create this fabulous photo card template that is simple to cut and score and mass produce. I have done all of three so far, LOL!!!! I also drew great inspiration from Paulina for my card design! She is so incredibly talented!

I also couldn’t help but share the photo my husband snapped while I wasn’t looking. Ugh. Just look at that mess! Creativity is in progress!!  My son loves his Spiderman costume and insists on wearing it at least once a day! If you look amongst all that mess, you will see some of the Tucked Away templates I still need to embellish! HA!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!! Off to get our Christmas photos taken in a few hours. Wish me luck! I still have been unable to get my son to take a nap!!! I see lots of bribery in the near future. Smile and I’ll buy you a pony! HA HA HA!
