I love DCWV's Stack-a-holic Template Challenges!
This is the sketch for the November challenge
I used the Natural Stack to scrap this photo of my dad. My mom unearthed the original the last year and I scanned it and had it printed at Costco. We have no idea what year the photo was taken.
I think my son bears a striking resemblance to his gramps!

Since I am in a crafting mode and my scrap room floor is littered with paper right now, I decided to make some book marks for the craft fair (and use some stuff from my stash and clean my floor in the process!).
These rosettes were simple easy to do make using Tim Holtz's Mini Paper Rosette's Die Strip. Just ran the paper through my Cuttlebug, and it comes out perforated for easy folding.
I added some buttons and baker's twine and hot glued the rosettes to giant paper clips.
Quick and easy and cute!


I have been busy making desktop calendars for the upcoming craft fair. I am making them in 2 different sizes and using some different papers for variety.
The above calendars fit into business card sized CD cases.
The 2 calendars above and the ones below are examples of the calendars I made that fit into standard CD cases.

I love this flower embellishment. I can't remember where I got the idea but it is one of my favorites. I punched 10 scalloped circles from an old phone book, put them together with a brad, scrunched the layers up and misted with glimmer mist.

Projects, Projects, Projects!!!

I have been crafting a lot lately! Special Services has a small craft show the first weekend of December. I thought I would create a few items and see if they sell. If I don't sell them, I can always use them as gifts!
Post it note holders
I made 2 of these rosette holiday wreaths recently featured on the DCVW blog. Fun, fun, fun to make!
More toddler jackets-these are always a hit!

I made this wreath for my sister from last year's Christmas cards
A couple of fabric pins using a new little template I found from Clover
Holiday block lights--cut the vinyl out with my Cricut

Guess I should fix my family some dinner and do laundry now....oh, and pay some bills.

Roy Crazy

I did this LO of the girls and Roy based on a sketch I found at Sketch Savvy http://sketchsavvy.blogspot.com/. I am glad they are crazy about Roy, not boys!
