Creative Cafe Felt Pocket

Isn't this felt pocket just the cutest thing? There is also a mini album (scallop edge and chipboard pages, in lime green) that goes with it!
The flowers and button are all from Creative Cafe.
To get the leaves and vines, I used Beautiful Morning stamps from Unity Stamp Co. and Palette Ink. The leaves were stamped on a separate piece of felt and cut out. The first time was just for a placement reference.

I am still flying high from all the fun and excitement from CHA. I had the privilege of meeting so many people, people that I truly admire! I guess I will share names because my DH and my mom don't want to hear about it any more! :)
I met Debbie Olson at the Copic booth. She is sweet and kind and sold me on the markers! :)
I had dinner with Lynn Mercurio, Nichole Heady, Dawn McVey, Heather Nichols, Jennifer Buck, Lisa Johnson, Michelle Wooderson, Deb from our PTI forum, and a few other lovely ladies! It was fun to talk about families and jobs and just chit chat! (yes, inside I was thinking, holy cow, please let some of their talent rub off on me! :) )
I also saw Angela from Unity Stamps, Layle Koncar, Vicki Boutin, Tim Holtz, Ali Edwards, Suze Weinberg, and so many others. The best part was, we were all ga-ga over everything at the show!
Well, back to reality; diapers, dishes, laundry, and cleaning, but I really wouldn't have it any other way! :) thanks for stopping by!

Those are cute.
This is cool that you got to hang out with all the PTI ladies. I think you are just as talented as they are.

This is entirely too cute and I just love the colors and how you did the leaves. And I really enjoy the recounting of who you met and what you did at CHA. I still say my favorite thing just might be the chocolate fountain!!!
