Things I've been working on

Hello Crafty friends! I've been keeping busy at my desk here lately with some reviewing, recycling and  remembering. First reviewing: I am doing another Cricut class at my lss so I have been reviewing my notes from last time. If you are in the Charlotte/Concord/University area, join me Monday night at 6:00 at Scrapbooks & Etc for a lesson in how to make the most of your Cricut Expression and Cricut Create.

Next recycling: I am also creating a brand new class for my lss. It's an altered book and matching card class. You will learn now to take apart an old book, recycle the covers and make a card to match. It makes a wonderful gift for teachers, co-workers, friends and family. You will never look at an old book the same again!

And as for remembering, I scrapbooked a 12x12 2 page layout! Yay! Can't hardly remember the last time I did that! It was so fun and got my creative juices flowing again. The layout was about the first day of school this year. My 6th grader and his best buddy were so excited! To read more about that adventure, go to THIS POST.

Well, I'm off the the lss to make some cards for Operation Write Home.

Go create something today!

OWH Sunday Sketch Challenge - finally!

Hello Crafty friends! I am finally participating in the OWH Sunday Sketch Challenge again! It's been a while since I have done it. Hate it when life gets in the way. So, here is the sketch:

And here is my card!

I have had these sheets of vintage looking labels with different themes for a few years now and didn't know what I wanted to do with them. (You know, one of those things I just had to have but didn't have any plan for!) When I saw this weeks challenge I knew it would be perfect for these labels. Plus, it gives me a head start on this year's Christmas cards! Yay!
