teenage motivation #1 (10min craft dash)

I did it again - the 10-minute Craft Dash.  And I made it before my timer went off.  Barely.  12 seconds left!  And I had to go back and glue some blooms on better with stronger-than-Glossy-Accents glue cuz I guess it doesn't work between fabric and paper, but I'm not counting that.

Needed gifts for kids I tutor who made their confirmation. Wanted to include a motivational quote and  personalize store-bought journals for each of them.  When I saw the Craft Dash colors I decided to challenge myself on this girly one. I had the sentiment ready to go and  I pulled the papers and my flower punches as well as the tiny alpha stickers ahead of time.  Keeping with the notecard theme I included some washi but probably shouldn't have.  In glueing down the flowers I aimed to put pink across from pink and blue across from blue but I probably could have done a better job.  Oh well.  Time pressure stinks, but it gets things done much quicker I must admit. Could probably have spent 10 minutes just re-arranging blooms!

Give the Craft Dash a go if you haven't before.  It's definitely challenging but you feel good when you're done.  And there's always a great prize.

Thanks for visiting.
