Christmas is on the way!

Here is a new fold I tried today, courtesy of Connie Babbert of I used my striped embossing folder (ran it both horizontal and vertical directions then gently rubbed a white ink pad over it) for the Sizzix top note center layer. I used some rhinestone and sparkle brads for the tops of the trees for bling. The sentiment will be stamped inside. The trees take some maneuvering until you like the shape of the trees exactly, but I think they are worth the work! Enjoy!

It's fall!!!

Time Flies!

My baby is growing up too fast...I saw a class advertised for about $70 for this scrapbooked clock...the lady even told me how to do I went to Wal-Mart and got a $15 clock, took it apart, traced a circle to make my "page" on, punched a hole in the center and reassembled the clock! I used rub-ons, rhinestones and a black and white photo of my daughter...I "faux" hung it from some striped ribbon...hope you are inspired to make one for your home!
