Baby Gift and Inspired by....

I wanted to make something special for my friend Karlie and her new baby Nate. When I saw the plastic container my tomatoes came in I thought that it would be perfect for the sock cupcakes that Lauren Meader demonstrated awhile back. In each holder is a pair of socks surrounded by a white sock "paper". Then I fancied up the packaging. I used some velvet stickers from Making Memories, some die cuts from the Jack line from Making Memories, and ribbon from Papertrey Ink. I love how it came out!

The second thing I have to share is the "Inspired by" challenge that Marisa has. I got a pair of sandals when I went to the garage sale this past weekend (the shoes were from a store closing out last summer's shoes, and yes it was the same sale I got the buttons at). I loved the shoes, they are totally my color.

Here is my card. The most fun was finding papers in my stash that were close to the colors on the shoe. Bazzil paper for the shoe base, Brown is from Stampin Up, White from Wausau paper, Blue from Paper studio. Stamp is Hero Arts.

And here is a glimpse at those buttons that I got! So fun! They are now sorted into muffin tins by color, I am working on my button storage. Have a great day!
