I have a layout to show you using some last year Easter picture's.  
I used a sketch and what caught my eye was the small photo's~how they were used, so I thought I would try to do that:):)  That was the only part of the sketch I used:):) ~inspiration!!!!
Never know where it will come from:)

The supplies are The Paper Studio, 7gypsies, Little Yellow Bicycle and American Crafts.

A good junkin' day~

Hi guys {happy valentine's day}!!
It's been awhile since I did a junkin' post, so I hope you enjoy this.
I was really excited to find these milk caps.  Borden's was the milk I grew up on as a kid.
  I paid $2.50 for ten. 

I think this will look awesome on the ladies restroom door at Craft Crossing.
I paid $2.  The letter's aren't raised or embossed, but it is still way cool!!!!

My mom gave these to me~size 3 child's. I decorate with them and remember
 when we had little feet like that around:):)
 This is a Bayer Aspirin bottle.  I thought it was a perfume bottle, got it home and it clearly says Bayer Company along the side.  I paid $1.  I have already found a purpose for it~
As a extra special *** treat*** for today.  The first 3 people that email me, with their address,
 I will share some milk caps with you. My way of saying Happy Valentine's Day!!!  It doesn't matter to me if you have been chosen before, it's just me thanking you for stopping by:):)

Avocado Arts~Forever Yours and Days & Months!!!

Hi guys!!
 Avocado Arts released two sets for February and they compliment each  other so well.

Days & Months
Forever Yours
I did a couple of layouts using my Disney pictures and a Wedding treat!!!

I used both sets on this one.  The bug is a great image, so many ways to use this.

Using both sets on this one also.  The thumbs up is super cute and a great image!!

On these I made a little candy wrapper and stamped the wedding saying, from Forever Yours, in the middle and then wrapped around a candy treat.  
Adorable to sprinkle on gift table or in giant candy dish. 
This is my last month being a member of the  Avocado Arts/Pit Crew Team.  I have had a blast using your awesome stamps.  I will  be doing some guest spots through out the year and I'm really excited about that.
Thank You Michelle!!!!

 Hi guys~hope you had a great weekend!
I did get to go junkin'.  The store was an old movie theater and it was extremely cold, (hard to shop when your freezing)  I did  find some keepers~I'll show you soon!
I've had this frame for sometime but wanted to show you how cool it looks showcasing the clock~

I still may do something else with it but for now I like this look!!!
Old frames are great back drops for clustering photos or a collection of something~
um~like a collection of 5's:):):)

Frames are a good thing~
as Martha would say
See ya for ~

don't miss it!!!!
I'll have all of my junkin' finds up!!!

 I have another project to share with you that also made it to CHA 2014Clear Scraps has a bunch a new mini albums, chipboard, acrylic or both.  This one is a Chipboard Teapot album.  I love the beauty of just the chipboard.
