Better late than not at all

Howdy fellow surfers! I have been MIA for quite some time now. I really need to get back on the wagon and start blogging. The sad part is I've done some projects but have not taken pictures of them before I sent them or gave them away. How dumb is that? I guess I will have to entertain you with my wit extraordinaire. Now that I've said that I've completely drawn a blank and have nothing to talk about.

My eldest son will be six next weekend. He is having his party at the local gymnastics center. I learned my lesson last year having a houseful of boys making a mess. This year they can run around to their hearts content and I don't have to clean up. dh just popped in here reading over my shoulder so I asked him if he had anything to say. His response was he doesn't have anything to say to people he doesn't know. I'm certainly glad he doesn't have a job in public relations.....

Okay I found a project for you...this is a wooden box I got at Michael's and covered with patterned paper from CTMH. I made dividers for the inside also but apparently didn't take a picture of them (that I can find). I could do that later to show you, but then again, I just cut out 4x6 rectangles from cardstock and covered them with patterned paper and added a tab. easy peasy. I sponged the edges using a brown adirondack paint dauber. Those things are really cool and don't make a mess.

Until I decide to post again.....

Workshop projects

I tried the other day to upload these images of the projects we did at the workshop last week, but they wouldn't upload for me. Today it works. So anyhow, here are the projects. The first is a card using CTMH stamps, Reach for the Stars. I used nestabilities to cut the card shapes and the swiss dot embossing folder in the cuttlebug. The cards we did at the workshop had green backgrounds instead of pink. The inside of the card says "to the moon and back".

The second card is using CTMH "That's Amore patterned paper and big blooms flowers. The inside says "Love You". I got the idea for it on
someone's blog. I'm sorry I don't remember who.

The third project is a little tag box that I got the template from here. The paper is CTMH Emporium Creative Basics, stamps are Sensational Seals.

The last project I got the idea from Kathi's blog. Thanks, Kathi! We all had a great evening at the "hen party" as my dh calls it. Though I am disappointed that Heather couldn't make it cuz of all the snow. I just think she was being lazy and I don't really think she spent an hour trying to park her car.....though I'm sure she'll disagree. Now why is this doing this? Why can't all the projects line up along the left side? This drives me nuts!!

The paper for this last project is CTMH Whoops a Daisy. Now why is this underlining?????? Stop it!!!

Okay, the real reason I don't post everyday is because this just frustrates the poop out of me because I am a perfectionist and I can't be having this underlining stuff going on.
I have no idea where it came from or how to stop it.

I hope you like the box and the rest of the projects! Have a nice day.
