A2 Card Base in Sahara Sand Cardstock
Moonlight DSP Paper Stack
Hello Honey Cardstock
Blackberry Bliss Cardstock
Gold Sequin Trim
Decorative Dots Embossing Folder

Pinwheels At Work

Hello everyone,

The week is almost over and I have a 4-day weekend coming up. Yippee!

Today, some of my co-workers and I took a break during our lunch time and made Pinwheels using Stampin' Up!'s Paper Pumpkin June 2014 kit.  The ladies had fun and I had fun teaching them.  Oh, and it was nice to not eat at my desk!

I used the following Stampin' Up products:

Soft Sky, Garden Green and Whisper White Cardstock
Pacific Point, Island Indigo and Tempting Turquoise Ink Pads
