Additions to the shadow box frames

Now I have 4 college friends on the shadow box train.  I made Haley's friend the Kappa Delta page since she just pledged, the nativity is the December page for the frames.

A few festive seahorses



Once again I was asked to make some seahorses for a co-worker, this is the result.

Holiday cards

 A co-worker asked if I would make a couple of cards for her daughter's classroom teacher and the teacher's assistant.  This is what I came up with.  I love the snowman, it could be my card next year with a little reworking.  I need to get busy with my cards, I received my first card in the mail today.

I look forward to visiting everyone's blogs and see what they are all doing.

I scraplifted my "concept" from a photo I had seen about a year ago. I had so much fun making these little snowmen I used the Snow Friends 2009-2010 limited edition cartridge.

I cut the snowmen all at 2.25 inches, then I cut the rosettes from Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge I cut the large rosette 1.50 inches, middle size at 1.25, and the small at .75 inches.

I cut a 10" circle and a smaller 8 inch circle out of a light weight cardboard, then wrapped the circle with ribbon. Then I placed the rosettes on the circle and hat glued them together. 


Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoyed my project.
Next blog to visit: October Beauty
Please leave a comment I will select someone randomly generated for a  little blog candy of a set of metal snowflake stickers like the stickers that I used on a couple of my small rosettes.

Haley Honey Boo Boo

What do you do when your 18 year old asks you to make her a Honey Boo Boo sash, of course you make it for her and then dig out a crown from the dress up box.  These are the photos of what I was able to get together for her.  I used my cricut to cut the letter out of a velvet paper and then used my scotch dot roller to adheare the letters to the sash, can you believe that I had thee silver fabric on hand.  The rest of the costume was bringing out the princess peach dress,  and fake eyelashes, she did not need the flipper she said her teeth were perfect.

Halloween 2012 Projects

Halloween Projects 2012

Full day at KIDS Club with projects by betsym

What a favorite project these little shoes were, the kids loved making them and could not make enough.
Later when we got back from a field trip we made candy corn back pack hangers

After we ran out of orange beads we had to come up with a new project so the boys especially loved this little skeleton,  and a little extra was that the beads glowed in the dark.

We also make a few spiders out of clay too.

Halloween Blog Hop

Welcome to the  Hop, this is the first time I have participated, please leave me a note, let me know how I am doing or give a suggestion. I am honored to be included with such a  talented group of people.
My project is my fun Haunted House.  I loved the cut and decided I wanted to find some cute paper to give the house some color.  I suspect there are  "friendly" spirits that live in this house.
Yes, that is Chip and Dale giving the cat on the porch a little scare.
I love to make little gifts to send to my daughter's friends that are away at college.  Recently I suprised a couple of gals with the witches shoe and notes  below.

I then felt that I wanted to send my cousin a little Halloween treat so I made the pumpkin boxes that I had seen on the cricut board, they were so cute I could not resist.
And then one last project that I have been working on.  Again I saw some shadow boxes created by a very talented  cricut circle member, I used the idea to make shadow boxes for my son, daughter and her friend at Iowa State.  Each month they receive a new background for their shadow boxes.  October's installment are:
