More layouts

Here are a few layouts I have done for challenges on a scrapping site.
Right now I am working on crochet towel tops. A friend showed me how to make one. I took notes. Now I am trying it on my own. The first few will be for family. Then I hope to make some for my craft fairs.

Excited about movies

I am so excited. I just saw the movies they are having at the drive in this week. Last year we went a lot. This year we haven't had the chance yet. I am so not going to pass up this opportunity. The drive in is like $6 for me and the boys are free. They also show 2 movies for that price. Can't pass that up. We load up with snacks and drinks from home. The boys and I just love it. They are showing......WALL E

An Altered picture frame

It is a much cooler day here today. We are supposed to be getting thunder storms sometime today and tomorrow.
Here is an altered picture frame I have made. I used a frame I got at the dollar store. DCWV paper. I sanded all the edges. Blossoms, buttons, and a fabric label that says forever.

I've been is a knit scarf

Well I haven't been near the computer for days. I was getting ready for the craft fair. I just remembered I forgot to take a picture of my table. I did get some at home the night I had my test set up. Maybe I will post them sometime. I made a few more cards and some gift card holders. I had a great time. I made 49$ after table cost so that is pretty good. It wasn't too far from home. I was also lucky to have a couple friends at this one too. So I got to chat all day. I am so good at that. I can't wait until the next one. i love creating things. I have posted a picture of a scarf I knitted a few days ago. I have to get ready for the fall craft sales. I also had my 11 month old nephew overnight Saturday. Wow! I forgot how much work a baby was. He was such a sweetie. I loved having him here.

A hot day...Here's something altered

Well it was a hot day here. I only had a 4 hour work day. It was 90° here and there was no air conditioning. Thank goodness for fans. I can't believe I used to work 11 hour days in a resteraunt in the 101° kitchen with no breaks. I really don't miss those days.

Here are some altered plastic juice cans. I turned them into pencil holders.

Layouts I have made

Well I thought I would post every day. I missed one. OOPS! Oh well. I have been deep in my scrap room creating. I am getting ready for a craft sale this Saturday. I just love doing them. I have all kinds of new ideas for things to make.

So, here are some pages I have done. They are a little old...but it is what I have found on the computer.

This first one is baby Me. I hand stitched the flowers on. I used the cricut to cut a flower out. Punched holes in it. Used it as a template to punch the holes on the paper to stitch in.

My oldest when he was a todler. The first time I used stickles. It is on the eggs. I was hooked.

My youngest when he was a baby. I used the cricut to cut the cat, letters and heart.

Also My youngest asleep in his squash baby food. I used a friends shillouette to cut the title.

Both my boys when they were little.
