HOME MADE CANDY JAR & BUTTERFLY FRAME

I'm a little obsessed with Pinterest lately thanks to my super fabulous friend DeeDee (thanks girlie).  I have found a few projects on there that I have re-created.  My first project is this candy jar:





The original project shows 3 jars (different sizes) and it was Halloween theme.  The letters "B""O""O" hung from the lid and the wood pieces were painted black.  You can see the original project HERE.  I will be making several of these for the teachers for Christmas and filling them with Peppermint candy.

Then last week, DeeDee posted a few projects made with paint chips from Home Depot.  Check out her blog HERE for inspiration.   What a brilliant idea.   I immediately went to Pinterest and was inspired by THIS butterfly project.   While I was at Walmart picking up some easels on Sunday, I stopped in the paint dept.   Kasi and I chose colors to match her room....hot pink, orange, green and turquoise.  I love the way the colors go from light to dark.   The frame is also from Walmart.  Now I leave you with a couple pictures.

If you haven't checked out Pinterest, YOU HAVE TO!!!  It's awesome.....and very addictive- hee hee!!!

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!!

Hugs, T




This is the frame on the shelf with the 3 Donna Downey autographed artwork and the matching toss pillow on her bed.  The toss pillow was the inspiration behind the colors in her room:

MY SWEET CUPCAKE

Happy Tuesday my sweet friends!!!  Today I want to share with you this layout I started last week of my nephew Gabriel..... Isn't he a cutie pie?? I lifted this idea from Nichol Maguorik of course. I admire her style of scrapbooking so much. She totally inspires me.

This weekend I also worked on a frame for my daughters room....something simple but super fun.

Chit chat soon!

Hugs, T

These are the die cuts I used from the SILHOUETTE ONLINE store:



I also used this KERRY BRADFORD Storyboard.  I cut it in half and then cut the left section in half also to add the journaling in between the pictures:

BEAUTIFUL YOU - Layout

YAY...I FINALLY finished the layout of my daughter.  I had most of it done except for the journaling and some misc. embellishments.

In order to finish this project, I needed to buy some ink for my printer as well as some photo paper.  I've been collecting some Print and Cut images from the Silhouette that I was dying to use like the bar code seen in this layout "Priceless Moments".

Now I leave you with some pictures.....ENJOY!!

Hugs, T
