Graphic45 Cut

Hello and welcome back.  Well, I finally used some of my Graphic45 papers.  LOL   For those who know me this was a major accomplishment.  I am admitting that I tend to hoard these papers. 

I just love them but they are to be used and when I saw the Wizard of Oz I knew just what to make.  My former co-worker and friend, Linda, and her son used to watch this movie every year when he was growing up so it holds a special place in her heart.   I made this for her birthday.   Happy Birthday, Linda.

The box came from Michael's and I painted it with black acrylic paint.  The feet are from Time Holtz.  Then I just started decorating.  I hope you enjoy.

Challenge 17 at Craft Us Crazy

Hello all and welcome back.  This time at Craft Us Crazy the theme is "Goodbye to Summer" and/or "School Themed".    I choose to use this cute image by Bugaboo Stamps to represent school.   Since my grandson, Lucas, is now in preschool you know it had to look like him.  

Our sponsors for the next two weeks are Meljen's Designs from Sept. 15th thru Sept. 21st and Kelley's Kids from Sept. 22nd thru Sept 28th.  Both of our sponsors have such wonderful designs.  Please check them out.  

I hope you have a wonderful week and please come see me again.

Challenge 16 at Craft Us Crazy

Hello and welcome back.  Challenge 16 is up and running at Craft Us Crazy and the theme is Autumn Colors and/or Favorite Embellishments.  I love the browns, oranges and golds of autumn so I designed this picture holder using a small clipboard that I bought at Michaels.   One of my favorite embellishments is taking chipboard frames in horrible colors and repurposing them.  The frame was a truly hideous blue bubbles and I used UTEE to transform it into black.  So easy to do.

Our sponsor from Sept. 1 - Sept 7 is Digital Delights by Loubyloo.   Their stamps are just so beautiful.  You must check them out.  Warning:  It is hard to choose which ones you want !!!  

Our sponsor from Sept 8 - Sept 14 is Sweet and Sassy.  They have just joined as a Member Company of Splitcoaststampers.  You all know how wonderful that is.  They stamps are just so cute that you will want to check them out.

Please support our sponsors as their designs are really special.
