Custom Vintage Car Chipboard Mini kit

 Hello Everyone,
   Be still my heart! OMG A friend of mine has designed her own kit through Accucut. This Jalopy is so AWESOME! Oh, isn't it cool? I can see this is going to be a great gift for the guys in my life. This is so cool. I can see pictures added to the windows. All grunge and distressed.
You can find the link to it HERE!
 Theresa has her own store called Enchantments Scrapbooking and More.  It is a cute little shop and online store but she has all the good stuff. I can't wait to get my hands on this kit. Oh how exciting.

Theresa did this kit up and put a VIDEO on youtube. She actually did 2 versions of this mini. One is a wedding album. Just stunning! I love it. It is simply elegant. The other she had fun with and that is the Steampunk debutant. Oh I never would have thought of that paperline. Just goes to show how many choices you have with this mini album. Go check out her channel. You will love it.

 Okay everyone, this chick is toast. Fighting a heck of a headache all day and I give. Going to bed. Have a wonderful week.

Single Fighter

 I love dragonflies. To me they represent the fighter pilots of the bug world. I happily watched our single patrolman today for about a hour. He takes the same path each time but extends his search just a little farther into one of the other zones with each flight. Nature at it's best.

A uninvited patrolman from another district flew in today. This foreigner was not well received by our friendly but fearless fighter. It was like watching a dog fight from a old black and white WW2 movie. Of course our  fighter was the true winner and the invader quickly went back to his own airspace.

I never did see if our fighter caught what he was after, but it was surely peaceful entertainment.
 I was not able to snap a picture of him. For security reasons of course. LOL I just don't have that high of a security level. DH tells me he does and he will see what he can do. Being the crew chief I would gather he could get the clearance. LOL
 This picture is a close enough representation of our friendly fighter.

 This post is dedicated to the events and people lost in the 9-11 attacks. May we never forget the high cost of freedom.
 Have a wonderful week

Dress form and Tag

Hi everyone,
I have only been home 2 days and have already accomplished something. WOW. I feel under the gun though. Like I am months behind and ya know I am? The good news is I work well under pressure. I get going and don't stop. That is the way it will be this week. Tons, I mean TONS to do. So keep watching for more projects soon:)

I had a custom order for another dress form and made a little tag to go along with it. I also made a video of it.
here is the LINK

The tag is simple but love how it turned out. Did it pretty simple on the back as well.

The dress form turned out very nice I think. Simple and elegant. I think it will match her craft space perfectly.

So this was my day. Nothing too exciting but glad that the video is done, the projects as well and now on to the next items. I can't wait to get started on the big project. You will just have to wait and see on that one. Taking Mom grocery shopping tomorrow. That will be fun.
Have a great week.

It is so much fun. They go pretty quickly really. On this one I had to wait a while for the gloss accents to dry though.

A tag for a friend

This tag was made with the cardboard from a punch. I love how it turned out. I used my spellbinders to do the cut outs, added a recollections flower sprayed with Lindy's stamp gang. Some black lace and the cut out she send me in my June swap. She is so sweet and loved the tag. I had a lot of fun making this. I love using those backings from the punches.

His crackle over that, here and there. Added bo bunny papers,digital images, stickles, and tons of vintage lace. You will have to watch the video to hear that story.
