Something for a friend

A girlfriend at work told me that I never have made her anything.
She was right.

So I made her this for her desk.
She loved it. I gave to her today.

Baby Shower Items

Items I made for a tag shower.
I have never heard of them but I think they are a great idea.
Used my Simply Charmed & George Basic carts.

The shower is for twin girls. So I made two tags & one welcome sign.

Made these items for a great active group that I just joined
called LowCountry Scrapbooking.
Let me know if you are interested in joining.
There are a ton of challenges & other activities!

I wanted to have some fun with the same picture so I did this:

(I promise better pictures soon)

Used some clear beads here
Glass beads & ribbons
Glass beads
Found this great poem and just changed the font on a few key words.
I used this die cut from my Accucut machine and put a few glass beads
here and there with the word LUCKY

Old Projects I just came across

Here are a few things I just came across:

Made this for my Co-workers when I still lived in TN.
Small tin with gift tags inside.
Thank goodness it was a small office :)

The creative juices are flowing :)

I hope everyone is having a great scrappin' Sunday!!

Here are some cards I made this morning:

I had this piece of black paper with white lettering laying around for
quite some time and just didn't know what to do with it.
Then I started cutting glueing    : )

I bought the cutest lil sewing machine for paper and decided to try it out.

Here's that sewing machine again :)

Found that blue and brown ribbon and I just had to use it.

Found this small laminate piece and this happened :)

A few of my favorite pages/frame backgrounds

Ever make something for someone and you
just don't want to part with it?
Well, I will admit that it has happened to me many times :)

Here are a few that I just had to make doubles of to have in my sample book

This Easter page was my first paper pieceing that I ever made.
Glo!! You inspired me lol

I was asked to make a cute Bath Time themed background for a frame.
It's rare when I have a picture to work with, which as you all know
the picture can make things to much easier.
I aske about colors. She told me to make it bright.
Well she loved it so much, she asked me to make more so the
Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles had one.

A friend wanted to make something using all the tickets she saved
to the movies that her and her husband saw.
This is what I came up with.

This one I just thought the paper was missing something.
So I added the mouse ;)

I have more pics posted on my facebook @ maria gonescraphappy
