Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Challenge-Christmas in July

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!
Hi everyone and happy Friday! Don't they come around fast? Yikes, it's almost August already! Where did the summer go? I hope you are all enjoying summer~

I have a busy weekend son from NY is moving to LA to continue to pursue music (writing & recording). He will be home this weekend for his 10 yr reunion and then leaving for LA on Monday.  We are hosting a pre-class reunion gathering this evening with a BBQ and the entertainment will be my son singing:) We are hoping for sunny skies and a great turn out!

Well, today we have another Fun Friday challenge at Little Scrap Pieces and I am sad to say this will be my last DT project. As, I mentioned Monday, I am going to take a little time off. I will still be posting projects periodically, so please stop and for a visit. It has been an extremely busy time for me and I just need to take a back seat for a while. 
Thanks for all the sweet comments this week and your understanding! 
The challenge this week is: Christmas in July!
Here is my DT project: 
I made these using My Creative Time's stitched lollipop die and the papers are scraps from Recollections-Jolly & Bright collection. 
I tied on a crinkle ribbon bow with ribbon from 3Girl Jam...colors: Mistletoe and Holly Berry.  The twine is from my stash. The fun tag is My Creative Time's die from Teeny Tag Greeting set and the sentiment is from the All  Around Christmas stamp set. 
Be sure to stop and visit the DT and see there fabulous Christmas projects:) We would love for you to join in the challenge!
I am entering this in a challenge over at 3 Girl JAM- challenge #22 Anything Goes w/ribbon
Thanks for stopping and have a GREAT weekend!!

  12. Awesome Treats, love the lollipop holder. Hope you have a great weekend my friend.

  13. My dear friend, these lollipop holders are so festively delightful! The papers, ribbon, and twine are so much fun together.. I love all of the color going on. :o) You have inspired so many people through all of your DT work, but the good news is that you inspired long before then, too! Your talent reaches far... no DT is needed. I know the decision wasn't the easiest, but when it's the right decision, it is always a blessing. I'm excited for the time you'll gain with your family and be free to craft only when time/energy permit. We will all continue to visit you, regardless of how much time passes between posts. You are loved and we are all blessed to know you! :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
