Rockets and Treats

Below is the treat bucket I put together for the boys upstairs. Since we don't have any kids of our own yet and our nephews are too young to appreciate or have the treats, I decided to make a little goodie bucket for the two boys who live upstairs from us. I did treat bags for them last year, so this year I decided to do a bucket. I got this bucket on sale for $1.50 at ACMoore, since it had a minor dent in the plastic. I covered it right up and tada!

Here's another card for a co-worker. This one is for a 5-year-old boy's birthday. Originally I was planning on doing a airplane or train card, but I came across this paper I got that had rockets and I knew just what I wanted to do. I had these little monster popups that I just have been dying to use. I hoped it worked as an alien-look-alike. Close enough, don't you think?

Anyways, have a great week! I'm off go figure out my Halloween costume with the hubs. If you've ever seen "Dexter" then our couple costume will be perfect! hehe
Have a great day!

Cards for Co-Workers

In a tv announcer voice: "And now for another edition of Cards for Co-Workers"
hehe. Ok, sorry about that, I just think this might become a special part of my blog- "Cards for Co-Workers"...kinda has a ring to it, don't you think? lol
ANYWAYS, sorry to keep you all waiting. I still haven't gotten new batteries for my camera, but in the meantime I did take some photos with my camera on my iphone. They are not the best quality, ok...they are stinky quality, but take what you can get. So here are some cards I made for co-workers. I still have a handful requested to make that I"m still working on, so I'll post those laters. I also have some scrapbook pages I did at the Crop-For-A-Cure that I haven't photographed yet and need to post. So much fun stuff left to do! Maybe I'll have some time this weekend (*crossing fingers*).

Besides making cards for my co-workers, I've been busy with my new adorable kitty cat, Wendy. Since my beloved C.J. passed away, the hubs and I couldn't deal without having a little furry something in the house, so we got Wendy on our wedding anniversary Aug. 23rd. She's a little handful at times, but yet so adorably cute! Don't you think?

Anyways, have a great weekend and stay tuned for more fun stuff!

Cropping for the Cure!

Sorry I never got around to posting anything for World Cardmaking was a very busy day at Crop-for-the-cure and I didn't have a chance to photograph anything till I got home. My camera died, so I only have photographed half the stuff I did, so I apologize for the quality of the photos (took a bunch on my mom's camera, which I don't know how to use very well).
So I got a lot done at the Crop-for-a-cure...a lot of scrapbook pages, some cards, some altered items...lots of fun stuff. Then the day I got back to work on Tuesday I had some card orders for a co-worker, so I'll post those later as well.
Anyways, enjoy some of the stuff I did at the Crop for the Cure and a few quick photos of my mom and I at the crop.

I still have a few more layouts and cards to show you later, but they will have to wait till I can get batteries for my camera. Also, do any of you out there know a good way to photograph scrapbook layouts than how I have. I can never seem to get them perfectly clear or not glared. *sigh*
Crop crop crop! I hope everyone is having a great October. I love this time of the year! Pumpkins are my fav! I just have to convince the hubs to move our spare fridge so I can get to my Halloween decor before it's too late.
Have a great weekend all and stay tuned for more fun stuff!
