I made these characters, Lightning McQueen and Mater for my nephew's 5th birthday. He is a huge Cars fan so I thought these would be great for him to hang in his room. I cut both characters at 5" and they fit well in 8x10 frames.

Recently, I tried glass etching for the first time in a class. I made these etched wine glasses using a Stampin' Up punch for the flower pattern and these matching flower wine charms. All of the patterned paper is from Stampin' Up.

I just received the most amazing 'Pot of Gold' from my Not-So-Secret-Sister, Chantal. For our June package, we were to create a 'Pot of Gold' as this is our last month of the swap. Chantal created a gorgeous decorated box and filled it to the brim with scrapbooking supplies! Not only was the box full, but there were lots more items that she included with the package. I received some beautiful handmade cards, Cuttlebug dies (including a very cute Cinderella card set), stamps (including the Stampin' Up Tart & Tangy set that was on my wish list!), tons of flowers, stickles, adhesives, Creative Memories kits, a K&Co designer paper pack, Stampin' Up cardstock and cards, and a lot more goodies!! I feel so spoiled! It was so great to have Chantal as a partner in this swap! Chantal, I hope you enjoy your 'Pot of Gold' as much as I am enjoying mine!! Thanks for everything!

I went to a customer garage sale at the LSS yesterday and came home with some great bargains! Here are all the goodies I picked up. Some of the best deals were Stampin' Up stamp sets for $5 and a pink Quickutz hand tool plus the whole Moxie alphabet (never opened) for $35!! Even though I use mostly the Cricut now for die cutting, I figured this could be handy if I'm hosting crops.

I received an awesome May NSSS package from my partner, Chantal (aka RyansMom from the Cricut mb). One of the challenges was so create a layout using your partner's photos, so I sent Chantal some photos of Paige to create a layout with. I just love the 'Princess Paige' layout that Chantal came up with! The altered book, Father's Day card, recipe layouts and treat packages are so nice too! Thanks for everything Chantal!
