Altered Printer's Tray!

Happy New Year's Eve to you! It is hard to believe that 2010 is just about over. It must be a sign that I am getting older, because the years, months, weeks.....just seem to fly by!

I bought this printer's tray at Archivers ages ago and finally got around to altering it. I used lots of Cosmo Cricket, Circa 1934 paper as well as Theresa Collins Gratitude line. I used a few miscellaneous pieces I had as well as a flower I created using Provo Craft's quilling kit. I love these colors together because my living room is a golden yellow and my kitchen, that opens up from the living room, is a cranberry red. I plan on placing this on my fireplace mantel. They are all of my favorite pictures from this past year. My lil' family. Love them....and am so very grateful for them.
I love being able to add dimension to my projects! : )

Here are a few close ups......first off is my beautiful girl........
And my handsome dude......
And of course my lil' fur baby, Skippers, has to be included too!
Brian and I celebrating 17 years of marriage together!
My two guys together.......
All of us......taken on our mini vacation to French Lick, Indiana.
So what is everyone doing for New Year's? I am just staying home with the hubby and kids. We usually do game night, cook up some steak and lobster, drink a bit of bubbly and then watch the countdown on TV. The days of partying are long behind me, I am content to stay home and snuggle up on the couch.
What are your plans for the New Year's Eve celebration? Whatever you do, be safe, and have a Happy New YEAR!

Crafty Secrets is Having a Sale!

Be sure to do a bit of after Christmas shopping for yourself at Crafty Secrets! : )

Bee Happy!

Good morning! I have another card to share with you today using a sweet image from children's book author and illustrator, Elizabeth Dulemba. This JustRite set is called, "Bee Ride." Her images are so much fun to color! I used my Copic markers. For some reason the name of this paper is escaping me, if I find it my very messy scrap room I will post the name of it later! : ) I did some hand stitching on the circle and perimeter of the background paper. The circle and scalloped circle are from Spellbinders. When coloring her, I was sure to leave the area under the bee's wing lighter.

I stamped the flower twice, cut it out, added glitter to it, and placed a foam square between the layers. I then added it to my bow with a sentiment.
I have nothing on the ole' agenda today. Which kind of feels nice! Maybe I'll get a bit crafty today or something! Who knows! : ) Have a great day!
