A little box for you!!!

This is a Creative Imaginations Bare Elements box that I just had to buy and decorate!!



Talk about recycling!!!











Ok - so this is a small project that I can't enlarge for some reason. I made a small project with toilet paper rolls.

Here is a link to photobucket:

New Work of Art

I really need to either get a new camera or take classes on how to take better pictures. It seems most of my pictures are always dull and don't show the true colors of my work! UGGH


Here is a plastic according 5x7 booklet that I made some 'enhancements' to.

My latest design

I had to make tags to attach to flower pots as a favor for my cousin's daughter's 1st communion and here they are! I used a Caterpillar stamp from Hambo, My Favorite Things Stamp (you make me smile) and My Favorite Things Stamp (thank you) on the inside with a picture she picked out and several different paper scraps!

Mom's Surprise 60th Birthday

I have been busy lately organizing and hiding favors and invitations. I made a favor box out of pastel colored paper from a template I found online. I stuffed the favor boxes with Lindt chocolate balls, Giradelli chocolate and Hersey kisses - that had a circle label on the bottom saying Marlene's 60Th Birthday. The stamp is a penguin with a Popsicle colored in with gold stickles.

Here are some pictures of the invitations that I made using a digital download from Dottie's World, silk flowers, buttons, stamp from Around the Corner Shop, a template I found online, paper pack from Bad Girls Kits and the invitation was a tag. I wish the photo came out better the colors were so bright, festive and fun!



Needless to say she really didn't know that the 30 favor boxes and the gift bags in my scrap room were for her party - thank goodness we have several events this month so I said it was for one or the other event and she believed me!!!

Here is a picture of the favor boxes...

Spring is Almost here

I haven't blogged in a while, been busy with party arrangements and favors for my niece's 3rd birthday, my mother's surpise 60th birthday - I have to post the pictures of the invites - they were so colorful!!. I have been determined to set aside time three nights a week to get things done! I have to!

I have finished a few books that I suggest for those looking for quick reads - The House of Night Series - another vampire book by P.C. Cast and Subterranian by James Rollins - a suspenseful end of the world race against time book! Excellent reads!
