A Play date with CASE

 How sweet is life!
 It's pretty good right now!

When I saw this week The Play Date Cafe color story I had to play.  So very yummy!

 And this fabulous CASE study of Joy Taylor.
 Story Time:  SO I went to the craft store with my kiddos and saw the most perfect Martha Stewart anywhere punch.  I really wanted to pick it up.  Not only would it have been perfect for this case but it was super pretty.  Anyhoo after debating to myself (out loud) my son says "Really mom, look at this thing, 28 dollars come on".  Leave it to the kids to talk sense into you.  So I used an edge punch I already had and I LIKE IT!!!

Aw... your post makes me smile, Lalo! I love how you used your punch here ( who needs a NEW one!?). Love the splash of colors and intricate borders. Perfect take on the challenges! My kids and I just watched "The Descendents" on DVD and that movie makes me want to go to Hawaii! Knowing that you are there makes me happy ,too! HUGS!

LOVE this Lalo - your punch does look great!
If I had my son in the store, he'd talk me into buying it, then say OK you've got a treat now let's go get something for me! LOL. Needless to say we don't go shopping together very often - my budget would never recover!

Beautiful job putting these two challenges together. The punch you used is great. Sounds like you're teaching your children the value of a dollar!
