Cleaning Thanks



I have to say goodbye to one of my housekeepers today and I thought the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge was perfect with the Paper Smooches Squeaky Clean set.  TGIF everyone.  Off to take a dip in the pool, seriously way too hot over here.  (Fun work blog post with the motel's pool here and some local photographers work here, which is where I really should be taking a dip, but I couldn't drag the kids out of the house fast enough to squeeze it all in).  And back to the crafty agenda-- there's still time to leave some love over at May Arts, the Ribbon Lady has announced all the new DT and she's got a giveaway and here's the link to my Cameo Ribbonista spot).

Materials: Paper Smooches Squeaky Clean and Sentiment Sampler, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz distress ink vintage photo, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen and tumbled glass, water color pencils, PTI kraft card stock

Oh, Erin I saw this just as I was leaving the house so I couldn't comment. Here I am back again! This is so fun! I love how you imitated the flowers with the cleaning supplies! Owning a motel, this stamp set looks like a must-have. I worked at a rustic resort in the summers during HS and college. I cleaned cabins and rooms in the lodge, and washed a lot of dishes. These tools are all too familiar to me!
