I had a sick child this week so no time to create :( I put this lil treat holder together this morning. Lyn B. is hosting the 3D Tuesday Challenge over at PCP this week and shared this FABBY mug-shaped template. I have used the snowman soup poem to make goodie bags in the past, but this just seemed the perfect packaging! Thanks for visiting :)
1 packet cocoa mix
small candy cane
The poem reads:
"Was told you've been real good this year
Always glad to hear it
With freezing weather drawing near
You'll need to warm the spirit
So here's a little Snowman Soup
Complete with stirring stick
Just add hot water, sip it slow
It's sure to do the trick!"

LOVE LOVE LOVE the sketch at Unscripted Sketches this week, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I was gonna make a scrapbook page.
I took so many photos of Emmalee this Halloween and I didn't want to leave any out, so I decided to make a mini album. I bought this chipboard All-Sorts album from CTMH a while back and thought it would be perfect. I grabbed my Enchanted Level 2 papers, also CTMH, and went to work.
Notice the inverted scallop Nestie mat around the photo...it is my very first time using them. I was the lucky winner of Alanna's candy during the blog hop last month, and this was one of my goodies :) I will def be buying more of these!
Finally, I embellished with ribbon, twine, paper flowers, buttons, brads, and a metal tag. This is the cover of the album...I will post again when I complete the other pages.
Thanks for looking and taking the time to leave me lovely comments...they are always appreciated!
This is my take on this week's FAB sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays. I just took these pics on Saturday while visiting my daughter's ballet class. This was the first time parents were invited into the studio to watch the girls perform. What a treat!!! Thanks for looking :)

Here is my take on this week's sketch at Unscripted Sketches. The papers are from a Making Memories stack and the SS is called Celebrate in Style (SU!) LOVE that octopus with all the yummy handbags!!! I have been wanting to reconnect with a dear friend...we just kinda lost touch last year and I decided to send a card to tell her I've been thinking of her and want to get together. I was also inspired by challenge #254 at 365 Cards to think of a wish and create a card to express that wish. I'm wishing for friendship :)

The lesson this week was how to make a simple gift card holder. This only uses a 4" x 11" piece of double sided PP and took about 10 minutes to put together. LOVE it! If you want to make one (or 2 or 3) of your own, join the CAS Card Group over at Paper Craft Planet. Lyn has a terrific new idea/card to share every week.

I used this week's sketch from The Beary Scrap and the photo @ The Shabby Tea Room as inspiration for this card. I am usually very traditional and never do anything but red & green for Christmas, but I decided to step outside my comfort zone (just a bit) and try something different. I chose the papers to compliment the blue and red in "Hollie's" outfit. The digital stamp is a freebie over at Sj's Little Musings. I discovered her blog last week and have been enjoying using her adorable images on my projects.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I am house & dog sitting at my Mom's all week and I have to say I've had the best time in her scrapbook studio. It's like having a whole store with new things to discover & play with! You know, I think that fabby ribbon you see on my card may "accidentally" find it's way into my suitcase LOL

Here is my take on the Sunday sketch @ 365 Cards. The adorable giraffe digi,"Fifi" was a freebie at Sj's Little Musings. As soon as I saw her, I knew I was going to make a card for friends expecting their first child...a boy! Such an exciting time...I miss having a baby in the house...well sometimes LOL I have had 4 of my own, ages 6, 16, 19and 21 at the moment(all still at home) and it's quite enough now that I think about it. They're blessings,every one, but oh my such work :)
