TECC 29: Polka DOTS!



What a fun sketch again from Taylor! TECC29 is in celebration of some adorable new stuff at the $1 Target Spot that is cupcake related! I really went a little crazy there, I just couldn't help myself! I packaged up a few of the items in a coffee bag: scented eye pillow, body wash & body spray. What I loved most about the packaging is the Polka Dots so I went with that theme using Hey There Cupcake which I won back in February from eP and Stampendous (I tell you I have goten a lot of mileage out of this set because of all the endless possibilities)! My card is attached to the bag but still removable. I chose to keep it shut by using the slit punch on the bottom. The polka dots on the bag are done using sponge daubers & a pencil eraser. Check out the color combo - Green Galore, Lovely Lilac & Riding Hood Red - the exact same colors on the gift items! I LOVE IT! Sorry about the glare at the top row of cupcakes - the cupcakes are stamped with silver metallic ink so they reflected the light.

While I was making this set, I couldn't help but think about my sweet niece (well I do ALL the time really). But, last week when I chatted with her on the webcam, which she got dressed up for me to do (hair done up all cute, pearl necklace from Linsey & bracelets from Barb) I asked her what she ate for lunch and she said, "POLKA DOTS" and proceeded to keep telling me that, and again saying it about 10 mins later. My sister said, "that's the randomness of a 2 yr-old" it was hilarious! I love it!
