Whew, all done!

Well, I definitely don't feel well. I was going to work today at the Habitat Store but once I was there I was feeling wiped out and couldn't breath (through my nose). We came home and I tried to take some photos and failed because the camera was dying. My husband convinced me to take a nap, not that it took a lot of convincing. I slept for 3 hours but I felt better when I woke up. My nose is still a little messed up though. I was finally able to finish taking photos and resize pictures so that I could submit them for the Graphic 45 Design Team call. I'm not holding my breath but it would be nice to be able to design for them. I know there are people out there that either have more experience or are more talented than me. It was fun trying though. I will post pictures of my projects below. I didn't really do a layout because I don't have a lot of pictures. They are all still at my mom's or on the computer but we don't have a digital printer or is it a laser printer?? I will probably try one now that I have everything submitted, haha. Anyway, now I just have to wait.

In the meantime, I need to get started on some sewing, making tags, making a mini for Tracy, and deciding if I want to join the ATC swap on The Beach. I can't decide if it will be too much or not. I'm also hesitant because I feel like I don't have the materials to go along with the theme for the month and I don't really want to have to go buy more. Trying to be good. Don't need to buy more things. This will probably last until tomorrow when I am suppose to go meet up with a new paper crafting group in the area. I have in my head that I will stop by Joann's and a LSS really quick and get a couple of things. You know how getting a couple of things goes though ;) Well, maybe while I am there I can get some things to do the ATC swap, haha.

I'm off to go play with either the markers or the glimmer mist.

Tag-on-a-Tag - there is a background stamp but it is hard to see sometimes. You can just make out it out on the right hand side of the tag.

This is a clipboard that I altered using mod podge to adhere the paper and then I used a rose ribbon adhered to chipboard to attach to the clip.

I altered a simple frame from creatology by adhering the frame to chipboard and then covering it with the paper frame. I inked the inside edges of the frame black and the pocket is adhered to the back side so that you can slip a picture in. If we go on a cruise, I think I'll put a picture of it in this frame.

I used distress ink to color the background and do the edges. Then I added the prima flower riboon.

This is the back of a simple tag I had made for another mini. The dots are stickers. I attached an embossed butterfly to a piece of die-cut card stock.


  1. Aww sorry that you are feeling under the weather. But your hubby has the right idea, rest is what you need.
    Think positive about being on the design team. At least you have the confidence to try. I keep thinking of trying out for a design team but I have never submitted. Good for you.
    Take care

  2. I left you a bloggy award on my blog :)
