Fanspiration Diva Dare


Hi all!  I’m the Diva host over on the Verve Blog today!  We’re having a Fanspiration Diva Dare this month.  The challenge is to CASE a Verve Fan project!  I had such a hard time choosing, but finally narrowed it down to 2 projects.  This first one is a CASE of Vickie’s gift bag from the ABC Anni-VERVE-sary Release Challenge.  I was drawn to the colours and sweet banners :)


My second project had to have some treats {wink!}!  LOL When I saw Lori’s sweet little back to school treat bags, I immediately thought of the teachers in my “pod” at work.  Yesterday was our first Monday AND a long staff meeting.  I dug out the “Hang in There” from Always on My Mind and paired it with “Happy Thoughts” from the new With Love.   A little chocolate goes a LONG way on a staff meeting Monday! LOL  These teachers found these little bags on their desks yesterday :)  And YES, they did have kisses in their bags (I only had a few after the photo shoot, wink again!).




Here are Lori’s adorable little bags :)

Such awesome CASE's Maureen! I have my CASE card ready to go for Thursday :) I'm sure your pod workers are going to love these! Love the grid pattern on the bags...so cute and fabulous colors to highlight the sweet little pencils!

Great cases! I'm surprised a few of the kisses survived the shoot, or did you secretly stop by to pick a few more up ;) Love all the white on the first card and the teacher pouches are adorable! Glad the chocolates help you make it through staff meeting :)
