I used Bazzill cardstock and OA weathervane journaling boxes , buttons , felt ribbon and felt flowers. This was a fun project!! The supplies I used can be found at WWW.ACBaileyDesigns.com . My next post is going to be my top 10 favorite layouts of 2008, so stay tuned!! Have a great day!

I used Festive by MME and some scrappy Chrismas embellishments . I love ribbons and buttons and I was sure to use both. Ha, ha. Have a great Holiday and find time to be scrappy - after all its a holiday!!

Fruit Cake Yum!

Don't these look yummy! I just had to show the fruits of my labors yesterday. With a cup of coffee and a slice of fruit cake - It doesn't get any better than that ( well at least for me). A good friend in Anna, Illinois shared his famous recipe with me. I had to beat it out of him. I'll give you a hint, it has a wee bit of apricot brandy in it-but just a bit. Hee, hee!! Hope you have a great week and go bake something and then eat it!! It will make you feel better. Promise.....

more crafties

These are calendar book marks. You can go to www.timeanddate.com to get your calendars for the book marks. All I did was mat the calendars and add some ribbon.
I used jiffy pop corn(stove type) and covered the tops with a little paper, stamped a holiday greeting, ribbon and snowmen!!! Quick gift!

The metal clips can be purchased at an office supply store. Just cover the bottom and dust off those punches and add a shape, add a little sparkle and you have a photo holder, recipe holder or place setting holder.

This is a beverage card that can be made very easily and attched to any beverage as a gift card. As you can see, I have been crafting this week. I love to craft and make something out of nothing. One of my favorite things to do. Most of these projects were made from left over paper kits and scraps. I hope you will get your scrap papers out and create. Have a great week!!!
