Blog Hop..dust off those stamps

Hello...Im back.....
Blog Hop..so fun!!
I really loved the challenge this month, gave me a chance to dust off some "not so loved" PTI goodies...


I used dot spot and the pink series of inks..I pop dotted two of them then stamped a sentiment from the scrapbook stamps that have not seen alot of love either (oops)

I buy these things with the best of intentions but.....hmmmm

Go hop of to Nicoles blog and see what everyone did!

SHUT UP....its a layout

OMG..I actually scrapped...

I've been so preoccupied with cards and sewing lately I havent done any layouts..



this is a photo that Lola took of me in the summer in Florida..

the layout kinda represents accepting the fact that I am totally randomly crazy!!!!

Im a crazy chick, I own it

Thanks for peekin'

Coffee sack clutches

Well hey hey hey!!

Thought I'd pop in and show you a little project I've been working on

I got a bit of a sewing gig for a local coffee shop... (yay)

I made these clutches from the coffee sacks that the coffee come in..
lemme just say...these are NO FUN to sew--this burlap frays like a mutha!!

I used some fuseable interfacing, 2 layers of canvas and HEAVY thread..now they are secure and wont fray!



They measure about 4x9 so a decent size..
