Throwback Thursday - w/Retired Cartridge

Hello Friends,...
Have you hear that Emma from My Creative Time is coming out with her next, 9th Release this Friday. Check out her Sneak Peaks and the Design Team's showcase of them from this week's Mon-Wed posts. Yes, it will be her 9th release. I wish I could afford them all. For this week's Throwback Thursday, she asked us to use any retired cartridge and link up our entry. I used the "Home Decor" cartridge. Well I'll admit that this started out really easy in my head, but when it came to actually creating it, I had quite a few trial and errors. More than I care to Anyhew, I knew that I certainly want to create some that would highlight one of her favorite stamp sets of mine using the "Inspiring Words". I thought how wonderful it would be to be able to have such quotes on hand as a reminder to get you through your day no matter what. Well my creative mind really took me beyond my comfort zone. I was inspired when Emma first showcased this set with a home decor project she did making some coasters. Click here to see her video. Well I haven't been able to get that idea out of my mind and wanted to piggyback off her inspiration. All Women Love Flowers; at least I like to think so and I know I sure do. "Yellow Roses" are my #1Favorite. Well I wanted to combine one of My Favorite Stamp Sets with one of My Favorite things..."Flowers". So hence you have my creation below, a Bouquet of Flowers. I called it my...
"Inspiring & Encouraging Bouquet"
The hardest part with this was choosing which quotes to use. Now of course I had to also use the "Inspiring Words - Accents". This bouquet will remain in my craft area to keep me Inspired, Encouraged and Creative... and to just get me though those not sooo good days. There is a different quote on each side of the flower so I can arrange them according to the Inspiration or Encouraging Words I need for that day.

Oh, Ohhh... I almost forgot some other exciting new going on over at My Creative Time with Emma. Be sure to Spread the Word on this New Release and tune into Emma's Blog on Friday and watch her video for the full Release & Winners. She is also going to give one Super Lucky Crafty Winner an opportunity to be a part of her next release (10th) with her Design Team. This means they get the entire set of her 10th release to showcase with the rest of her Ahhh-Mazing DT! I can't begin to tell you what a Dream Come True of Mine that would be. My Inspiring & Encouraging Bouquet will keep me going in hopes she announces my name. Let me know what you think of my Bouquet. I barely got this in on time...  p.s. my apologies for some of the blurred pics. Like I said, I was trying to meet the deadline. I'll post the recipe later. Happy Crafting! Smooches...
