ATCs and Class Treats

Sadly, I have not done my 365 challenge for today. I am not really inspired by sketches so I kinda put it off for tomorrow. On the other hand, I have been working! My camera is now in Camera Heaven. I dropped it yersterday trying to take a photo of my class treats and I broke the lens mechanism. I had a Cannon Power Shot and I LOVE it! It was my second one. So tomorrow will be another trip to the bank so that I can replace it. Unfortunately, I have to dip into my trip money for the summer :( Anyway, I borrowed my sister's camera to take today's photos:

At Mommysavers, we are having an ATC swap. There is no theme so I thought I'd use some new Studio G stamps I bought the other day at Michael's. They were scrapbook themed and I thought that, although they are the CUTEST, I wouldn't get much use out of them. SO I was glad to be able to use them for this. I am not sure if I like them or not.... I used the Studio G set for all of the stamping. I stamped the base with three of the stamps (the glue bottle, a tag, and scissors images) I then stamped the "create" and cut it out. I also stamped the scrapbook image and cut it out. I typed and printed the "ready, set," in Courier font on my computer. I CuttleBugged my black paper (2x3) with the Swiss dots folder. I then decided that a flower would be cute and the button shaped brads were kind of crafty so I used them for the centers. I glued it all together and this is what I got:

Also, I broke my camera to photograph the class treats I made for my sons Pre-K class. They raised almost $400 for the MDA!! They had thier Hop-A-Thon on Friday but I have been having eye troubles and couldn't drive to see it. So I am sending these little treats tomorrow. I used my favorite Stampin' Up set that I own, "Very Punny" to make these little circles and attached them to the scallops. It is all scrap paper and I used Green Galore ink to stamp the images. Again, I do not like this camera. It is hard to see the image. It says "Hoppy for you" (Hop A Thon- Hoppy for you)I used glue dots to attach them to Reece's Cups. I also tied the bag with a ribbon when I was done :)
