I Love Bee-ing your Friend-DT Generations Crafting

 It feels great being home and getting back to creating..
being on vacation for 2 weeks kind of kicks your butt, if you know what I mean..LOL

I got these wonderful BasicGrey  Olivia line papers from Generations Crafting and since there are so many wonderful colors and prints to choose from,  I really had a hard time getting started..LOL
Plus, Leah (beecherrylady) talked me into buying the new Create A Critter cartridge, I did get it while vacationing in Florida and it was pure torture having to wait the 2 weeks till I got home to use it..  :O)
 I really wasnt sure if I needed this cartridge or not, but I'm so super glad I did buy for myself..
Here are some close ups of the layout:

I ended up adding some glossy accents to the wings of the bees and the hearts.. It looks super cute.
