As my chicks grow...

And as I find more time to get creative, I thought I would share some of my creations, as well as my time with others. Hopefully I will make new friendships and create lasting bonds over paper, adhesive, and embellishments. So sit back, relax, and let's share...have a cup of coffee, or tea, or in my case a Coke...lol... and let's just have a blast creating, finding new projects to make together, and gathering our supplies for future endeavors!

Funday Friday Challenge at Jo's Scrap Shack!

Time for another Fun Friday Challenge over at Jo's Scrap Shack, this week the theme is ANYTHING GOES!!! So....have fun, put together a FABULOUS and FUN card, scrapbook layout, or project and post it at Jo's before Friday, April 11 for a chance to win!

Here is my project I created!
I absolutely LOVE Popcorn Ellie from Paper Nest Dolls! 
This is a HUGE tag die cut I got some time ago...I think it was die cut from an Ellison machine. I loved the idea, but held onto it because I wanted to make something special. Well, the special time came. I have a very dear friend I want to bless with a gift the family can enjoy together...and today you get to see the tag for it....


So, I LOVE how it turned out and it is really just a decorative tag for the outside of a gift basket I am putting together...what do you think the theme is? :)
