The FOUR Hour Project....Milk Cartons & Container!

These four little milk cartons and container took me about four hours to make. I'm not sure if I will ever make one of these again, even if it is cute. I received the project in a swap I did in February. I do not remember the name of the girl who did this, but she got the idea from Becky Roberts a Stampin Up demonstrator.

Round Tin and BLOG Candy Winner!

This cute round tin was something I received at a scrapbook retreat where we all swapped a project and/or layout. The tin was designed by Galene R.

The blog candy winner is Vicki from Bark River, MI. Send me an e-mail and let me know what your address is, so I can send you a Reach for the Stars layout. Thanks everyone for all your nice comments!

Notice my daughter's frown. I told her she had to take a bath and go to bed, after she draws a name. She is not happy with me! LOL!

Valentines FUN - Share the LOVE!

I saw this on Lea's blog and thought would be fun to play myself. She always makes the cutest things, so I can't wait to get something from her. Thanks Lea!

To show the LOVE this week and to celebrate Valentine's Day, here is what you do. The first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the year, a handmade gift from me. What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well. Before you leave your comment, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going. Then come back, let me know you're going to play and sit back and anticipate the arrival of your gift! Be sure to send me an e-mail and tell me your address.

Remember, you must post this on your blog (I will be checking) and leave a comment. The first 3 to do both will receive a gift from me, so be quick!

Reach for the STARS and BLOG CANDY!!!

This is the layout I did for a swap at an all day retreat at Sheri R's house. Only a few people were invited, so I was honored to be one of the few to attend. I received 14 projects to make, but only ended up completing a few. One project took me about 4 hours to make! I will post some of the fun projects later this week, and the others when I complete them.

I used a PageMaps layout, which I located on Jena's blog. I always find such great ideas from her blog. Thanks Jena! The pictures are of my son and daughter, which were taken in September 2007.

Okay, for the blog candy, leave a comment on this post and your name will be entered into a drawing for a Reach for the STARS layout kit. I will draw a winner on February 16. I also am giving two away now to Jena and Stacy, because I won blog candy from both of them and wanted to give something in return. I will get theirs in the mail later this week.
