MFT Idol Week 7 Serenity Now Set

Well, I made it into the TOP FIVE of the MFT Idol Competion!! I have to admit I was surprised I made it through the last round but here I am and I'm pretty happy with the project I made for this weeks challenge, Frame It! WE could make anything as long as we incorporated some sort of frame into it! After the last couple of challenges I was really excited to make a 'project' and I'd been itching to use some of the Annie La Pointe images that KelliJo sent me! Let it be said that this project would not have been possible without KelliJo's generous loan of her ALP stamps!! THANK YOU KELLIJO!!! Although the Serenity Now set is mine I really needed the Plants to go with it! I didn't think they were really a 'must have until' now!!

Anyway...are you ready for some pictures? My idea started with a simple picture for the new bathroom that we'll be putting in our basement right away and it somehow blossomed into this set! I think it would make a great gift for a friend, teacher, office colleague...or anyone that likes tea I suppose!

All of the images that you see are stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copics, including the yellow backgrounds! The colors were inspired by the My Mind's Eye Penny Lane dp that is used here.

This is a close up of the framed pictures and Post-It Note Holder with matching pen! The black accents were inspired by the black frame.

I got this Go-Mug from the Dollar Store...so much fun to make personalized gifts with these! The Tea Box is a 5X7 piece of dp, scored at 2" on all 4 sides. Those are my FAVORITE teas....Calm and Zen by Tazo...YUM!!!

I guess that's it! I hope you like it enough to come and vote for me over in the MFT Forum ! Voting starts tonight at 10pm EST and goes until tomorrow night at 10pm EST! And just so you know, you CAN vote for more than one entry by clicking on whicever ones you want to select and then you can hit the Vote Now button!

There's a good chance I might not make it through the next round but I gotta say...it's been an AWESOME ride!! How amazing to make it this far with these AMAZING women!! I can honestly say I have stretched my creativity to limits I didn't even know I had and I've been so inspired by what the other contestants have done! I think we've taken paper, glue, and poly to a whole new level....even if I do say so myself!! Lol!!

Thanks again to KelliJo for lending me those Annie LaPointe stamps....you ROCK girlfriend!! What a very cool and generous thing to do for someone!! Big Hugs! I'll be shipping them back to you right away quick...after I snag a few images of course!!

Thanks for stoppin' by for some Stamps 'n' Coffee....and don't forget to vote!!
