Creative Escape, here I come...

It is time to leave for Creative Escape
I have been busy creating little Thank You gifts for the teachers and for various swap hostesses and thought you might enjoy a sneak peek... I created decorated containers that have a ribbon holding a chocolate candy truffle bar from Seattle Chocolates. It is concealed until you pull up on the ribbon. I think these also make delightful party treats.
The color theme for Creative Escape is pink, lime green and this year a zebra pattern as well. I don't often work with zebra print, was a bit of a challenge.

This is for Tim Holtz and he is the tag "King" so I thought a tag would be fun to give him as well. He also uses "Greetings From......."postcards, so I again did a right back at cha with a "Greetings From Washington postcard attached to the tag.

I adhered a chocolate Space Needle to the back side of the card as well. Hope he gets a chuckle.

And finally here is a "candy slider" for Heidi Swapp...
I fly out of SeaTac tomorrow late morning, am like a kid waiting for Christmas to come, today seems extra long. Shall try to take lots of photos to share upon my return September 1st. In the meantime, take a moment and enjoy the view.
