This lay out was a weekly sketch challenge at SF. I really like the way it turned out. I used American Crafts pp with matching bazzills. The title is made out of LoriMart letters, she is a fantastic Ebayer with reasonable prices on chipboard letters. Her Ebay id is lordan37 check her out! :) Anywho, on the letters I painted them with acrylic paint and stickled them with clear starburst stickles. The shaped green paper was cut with my Fiskars treading water punch, thanks again Julie! I also used large Primas and I stickled the brad in the center. And there is a lttle bit of sewing around the pp.

The pictures were taken at the Hall Markets here. Everytime we go, Kaylee has to play in the jump house, ride the pony, or ride on the merry go round. We could spend all morning just at the kiddie ride end of the market.

{Turkey time, kit}

I haven't made a kit in a while, I feel like I am kind of a rut with them, but I do like the way this one turned out. I used DCWV papers with matching Bazzill papers. The title was cut with my wishblade and everything had been inked and stitched. I also stamped and stickled on most of the items. It is hard to make pretty Fall things when it is Spring here!

{Christmas Calendar time}

This year I decided to make a digi calendar. I got the template from The Shabby Shoppe. All I had to do is down load, add pics, layer everything, then take to the nearest photo printing station. I mounted them on chipboard and bound them with my bind it all. Two gifts down, many more to go!

{Christmas Cards take 2!}

And here is the second set of Christmas cards. Well I think there is one birthday card in the midst!

Once again I used mostly DCWV papers and matching cardstocks! :)

{Christmas Cards}

Here are some of the creations I came up with for an online crop. I just love the way they turned out. I used American Crafts pp, matching Bazzills, Making Memories chip greetings, and various flowers.

10 cards made out of one sheet of patterned paper is amazing!

{Christmas Candy dish}

Here is a candy dish that I made for a friend of mine. It is constructed out of Bazzill and the pp's are from the DCWV Christmas stack last year. Everything is inked with olive chalk ink. My only hope is that it arrives to Canada in time! *giggle*

Maybe I should whip up another one for the School holiday fair next weekend?

{Digitally created Calendar}

October was a crazy month and I have sooo much to add! I have been very busy making gifts for family, and I have two done! WOOT! These are digitally created calendars that are for my MIL and Dh's grandmother. I am waiting on photos to finish the ones for my mom.
