Birthday Gift





Happy Friday Night everyone. I know I should be doing laundry now but I just can't get in the mood for that. So I decided to post some picts of a little project I have been working on. This is a gift I am giving my boss' daughter for her birthday. This idea came from two great bloggers:
and
You should check them out. They do the cutest work. I visit their blogs often.
I did have to do a few adjustments because they used full size cake mix boxes and I used little cake mix boxes. My upline found these smaller versions of Duncan Hines cake mix just for cupcakes at Big Lots. Now she can make some cupcakes and add a few sprinkles. I also added four "thank you" cards so she can send out those thank yous for those great gifts she will get.
I guess I should get to folding. Hoping to hit the outlet mall tomorrow. Mommy needs a new pair of shoes, and pants, and shirts, and purse, and, and, and...you get the picture!!!

Fall Wreath


Even though my craft room still looks like hell, I felt compelled to get a little crafting done this weekend. I have seen some beautiful wreaths using the Big Shot dies and thought I would try my hand at a fall one since I love decorating my home for the fal and spring. I hung this on my front door and now I am thinking I will do a smaller one for my cubicle at work. I also loved how I used items that I have been hoarding for months; like the corduroy brads and designer buttons.


Oh, and by the way, this is a sample of what we will be doing in my class on October 10.


Recipe:
DSP: Autumn Traditions
CS: Elegant Eggplant, Ruby Red, More Mustard, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Accessories: Jumbo Brads, Corduroy Buttons, Designer Buttons, Butterfly Punch, 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Big Shot: Flower Daisies #2, Leaves #2
