Thankful Thursday Reminder, and Cosmo Cricket Day 4!!

Hi Everybody!
I hope you all are having a great week so far.  Only one more day until the weekend, whoooooo hoooo!  So for today, I just want to remind you all that you still have one more week to enter the current Thankful Thursday Challenge HERE.  You can enter to win an AMAZING prize pack from Post-it!  If you haven't tried their craft paper yet, or live somewhere you can't find it then you NEED to enter this challenge! 

Next, I want to share my project I made for day 4 of Cosmo Cricket!  The Scrapbooking Queen and her design team are highlighting CC all week long, so check in with us everyday this week!  Here is what I came up with for today:

*Pink By Design = Big Thoughts set
*twine and buttons from my stash
*glass candle holder from Dollar Tree!

*Cosmo Cricket paper is double sided, so this project still looks good on the inside too!

The paper ring will slide right off, so you don't have to worry about any fire danger!  Or you can just use a flameless candle :o)  I thought this turned out really nice, and can't wait to make a bunch more of these to put out on our patio.  My kids will be out of school in a couple of weeks, and I can't wait to start those summer nights out in the backyard!  There's nothing like roasting hot dogs, with smores for dessert! 

Don't forget you can keep up with everything Cosmo Cricket on their Facebook Page HERE, and on the Cosmo Cricket blog HERE

Here's the lineup in case you get lost or need to stop along the way:

TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :oD
