Farmer's Market Phone Book Fun...Huh?

So I have to thank my teammate, Savannah
over at Savannahland2 for this challenge.
I spotted her card and thought it would be
so much fun and you know what...


 sponsored by Paper Crafts Magazine.
The idea....just whip up a project using pages
from a phone book.

I used Cosmo Cricket's 'Garden Variety' collection
which was a no-brainer considering the theme of
my yellow pages ad.
I cut out my sun using Spellbinders dahlia dies
and just zig-zagged my way around the
vegetable frame to complete the
old-fashioned flavor.

I am also tossing this in the ring over at

Challenge #54 - Bright & Cheerful

It was fun to pick out bits and pieces of this 
1/4 page ad and really like the result.

I hope YOU do too!

Before I go, I want to thank Savvy for one more thing.

I was honored over on her blog today with
this award.  Little does she know just how
much sunshine SHE brings to my life!
Love ya, kiddo!
