Paper bag card

I created this after watching a video - posted for creative university. Card done by Aaron Brown. I wasn't going to post my card but she has posted a blog candy - to see what people have created so I thought why not?
Watch her video here

Window Treat Box!

Ok So it is another Tuesday and I was up early - There is no better way to spend that extra time then creating. I hopped on over to Project Tuesday ( http://sasprojecttuesday.blogspot.com/ ) and started to create the new challange.

This one was a little harder for me, I am known for only using Close To My Heart papers etc, I had picked this paper up about a year and a half ago thinking that I could use it for my soon to be adopted son, and just never did. This morning seeing the project it just cried out that I use it. I hope you like it.

The window is created from half or one of our containers for the CTMH brads. (I have seen this done before on cards - thank you to who ever you were for the insperation)

Paper Bag Album part 1

OK, I was waiting for my daughter to come home from her first high school dance last night so what could I do...CRAFT of course so here is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy - sorry the pics are so yellow but since the weather is bad today there really is no where to take good pictures in my house today. I really need to take another stab at a light box. I am thinking of doing this as a Christmas workshop, and I would love to know what you think :)
Thanks go out to my daughter Jayde for helping me, those are her fingers you see.
And Thanks to everyone else who has ever given me inspiration!

Take a Breath and Blow!

I thought I would post my layout for you. I loved this stamp set Treasure D1375 when it first came out, but had never used it. Now it is in the new catty on page 52 and thought it was time to break it out. These photos just happened one day on a walk with two of my kids...who could resist!
Since posting this I have been shown yet again how bad my spelling is..but no worries the E has been successfully removed from the word BREATH.
