When Life Gives You Lemons...

I am up on the Echo Park Blog today with another upcycled project.  I love creating themed gift baskets and this one started with the lemon pie plate that I purchased at a Thrift shop last year.  I have been on the lookout for lemon themed items ever since.  I thought this would make a good 'Get Well' or 'When Life Gives You Lemons' kind of gift basket.  On gift giving day I would include some fresh lemons along with a homemade lemon loaf.

The Yellow Submarine Mini Theme was perfect for creating the accents for this theme!


I used my Preserves Cricut cartridge to cut out the lemon items.  I have also used some SRM Stickers, Papertrey Ink stamps (Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar additions) and some Lemon Divine Twine.
