Make & Take

This is my make & take that we did for Amanda's party last night. I forgot to get pictures of the ones that they made, but here is what they based it on. I am starting to like the color orange. I know I am from Orange, but it wasn't my best color. Anyhoo, I can scrapbook with it and don't have to wear it right!?

I used a large mat board tag
vellum flowers that I punched out(blue & orange)
felt flowers from American Craft
bronze colored eyelet
paper that was left over from a previous kit
distress ink in vintage photo

I wanted them to play with different textures on one item to see how they can work together. I also wanted them to be able to use the Crop-a-dile. Love that thing! It is quiet and so easy to use. They loved it and were amazed at how easy it was.

OK, so I am just getting to do my halloween pictures from last year. Just in time to take more! This is from the October kit that is coming out in a few weeks! I already have a page done! Whoo hooo! I plan on doing more so I might add it to this one later. The kit came with a stencil sheet that was too cute. That is what all of the swirls and the circle in the middle came from. I used the white pen from Inkssentials. WAY CUTE! I love it!

The kids weren't anything scary for halloween so I didn't want the page to be scary. Maybe I will add a few pumpkins to it or something.

Photo of Summer

I had so many photos from summer that I loved, but I settled on this one of my son's foot at the beach as one my favorites.

Hurricane Ike

Hey y'all-I don't have any pics of my family's houses, but we have had word that they are ok. We also have had word that there has been no water damage to our homes, just maybe some cosmetic stuff to fix. My family is still out of town and don't know when the power will be back on or when they will be let in. Some other places in Orange are really bad. Bridge City is pretty bad too. I am putting in some links to and the Orange Police Dept.. They have pics of some of the damage. This is a tv station that has been streaming online. KFDM Check them out if you want to see. Thank you to all that have said prayers and have been thinking of my family. I will post more later when we have more to update.

Purse Card

Just a couple of cards from the August kit. I LOVE the colors in this kit. The paper and rub-ons are from Daisy Bucket Designs. And of course the mat board from Heartstring Designs. LOVE IT! I also used Broken China distress ink from Ranger on both cards.

This is a purse card that I added a magnet to the back of the flower and to the card to make it stay closed and to help it stand up. I think it turned out really cute.
