It's been SOC!

Greetings Fellow Crafters and Faithful Followers,

It's me again - twice in the same day!  LOL.

I just wanted to drop a little note here to let you know that there is a SCANDAL going on at Scraps of Color (SOC)!  Well, ok, it's not a real scandal, but a relay challenge hosted by the Robert Jackson Digi Group - featuring images/characters from the TV Show "Scandal".  We are currently working on Challenge #7!  Whew, what a relay this has been!  SMH and LOL!

Here are some of my completed projects...

Challenge # 6 - Olivia - use bling and flowers

Challenge # 5 - President Fitz - use red and a die cut

Challenge # 4 - Millie - include food/beverage

Challenge # 3 - Jake - use triangle(s)

Challenge # 2 - Huck - use dry embossing and double mat

Challenge # 1 - Cyrus Beene - add a heart
Thanks for visiting,again. 


Challenge #102 @ 613 Avenue Create

Happy Holiday Season,

It is hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner... LITERALLY!!  I can't believe that this holiday season has found me so unprepared, yet again!!  SMH..

In spite of being unprepared for this holiday season, I have managed to carve out a little time to finish a quick DT project for 613 Avenue Create.  This week's challenge - hosted by Team B - is another "Anything Goes w/optional gift packaging twist"!  So appropriate for this season, don't you think?!  LOL.  One of our sponsors for this challenge is Bugaboo Stamps, so be sure to visit the website to see what new holiday images are available, to help you get in the holiday crafting mood!  Here's a little inspiration... using the Celebrate Tag from Bugaboo.

Everything, except the tag, was from my stash/scraps!  Now, that's recycling!!  LOL.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to leave me a little blog love, if you don't mind.  I'm thinking about doing a give away in the New Year, once I've reached 50 followers!  So, please spread the word.

Warm holiday hugs!

Birthday Projects

It's me again - I know ... twice in the same week?!!  LOL.  I wanted to share a couple of projects that I completed, in celebration of DM's birthday this year.

Last year, my mom had mentioned that she needed a way to store or keep the different hand-made cards/gifts I've given her over the years.  That statement stuck with me for a while.  My first instinct was to get her some type of plastic storage/organizer.  But, as I was preparing for Cassie's Craft-cation in October, the idea hit me... alter a box!!  Well, that idea excited AND scared me, at the same time.  LOL.  This project was going to take me completely out of my comfort zone of paper, and force me into the world of wood!  Needless to say, I am pleased with how my first altered box project turned out.  I do need to learn how to tape off some of the fixtures to avoid getting paint on EVERYTHING!  Lesson learned...

Below is a small collage of the cards that I made for DM - one from the grands, and one from me.  What you don't see in this picture, is the funny...slightly smutty card that I made for her, that I placed inside the box!

Closer picture of the altered wooden box.

Thanks again for looking!
