Treat Boxes

My samples of Treat Boxes I am offering for "Craft Day" at our church. 
This is always a fun day for the ladies and I love seeing all the
other crafty items that are being offered.  Hope
I have time to visit the other tables!
I used Close to My Heart's Art of Philosophy and Artiste
Cricut Cartidges.

Let's Go Giants!!!

We had a blast at the San Francisco Giants Playoff Game 6!  My first
Playoff Game and enjoyed it with my son, his fiance and Hubby.
Our stadium is beautiful and although our seats were in the upper deck,
the ocean view was fabulous!


Game #1 of the World Series is tomorrow....GO GIANTS!!!

My Heart's Swap

I am a little late in posting my My Heart's Swap card but here it is!

I really enjoy the challenge using guidelines from Tamra Pope.
 And let me tell you it is a challenge!  She is one creative lady! 
Here is the link to all the MHS cards from the August swap.
And check out Tamra's blog for all her creativeness!

Autumn Tags

More tags....had to catch up on my holidays you know!  Couldn't decide on Fall or Autumn, but am happy with my choice.  Next, Christmas and Winter tags.  Stay tuned.  *smile*

I am finally finished!  Once I finished my blocks, the tags are super easy and so fun to use embellies I already have "in stock". 

The 2x4's are sanded, "modpodged" with dictionary paper, inked around the edges and an upholstery tack set...good to go!

Happy Anniversary!

Seven....Hubby and I have been married 7 years ago today.  As I tell him, its been 7 full years!  LOL
Just had to post this pic from one of our road trips to Bodega Bay.  I was trying to take a picture of myself and the ocean with my iPhone and he had to get in on the action!  Cracks me up!!!
Our anniversary gifts to each other are Game 6 SF Giants Playoff tickets!  Please be a game 6!!!!

Florentine WOTG Cards

A couple of cards made from Close to My Heart's "Florentine" Workshop on the Go.  I  love to use the leftover scraps from our layouts to "whip up" cards.  *smile*

Break Over!

In August, I posted I would be taking a "Little Break".   My hand is great since my surgery, but have been taking care of Hubby as he had neck surgery.  Really???  Looking for a super healthy 2013 in our house!
I have been crafting though...which is fabulous therapy by the way!

This is a cute little mini album I made for my long time friend's first grand baby.  They are avid Disney fans and couldn't help but make Carrington her first Disneyland Visit album.
I don't know about you, but don't you love to use items you have hoarded  in stock?
I did use Close to My Heart's Artiste Cricut Cartridge and  Mini Album Chipboard for this album.  How cool is it to have your images cut perfect to match the chipboard!
Enjoy your Sunday and Go SF Giants!!!
