Paper Shoe

Another GIBBS 3 item - a paper shoe.  You can find the instructions on this blog:  stampartic.blogspot.com.  She does wonderful work.  I cut out two shoe bottoms and glued them together.  It made the shoe stronger and hid the glue from the top of the shoe!
I made the flower on the shoe with tissue paper scraps.  I cut scalloped circles from nestabilities, scrunched them all up, unscrunched them and then put them all together with a brad and fluffed them.  I love them - so easy and so cute.
I then filled the shoe with little goodies - a cute little container of goodies!

Desk Organizer

OK, the Cricut MB GIBBS 3 swap is done and my partner has received her items.  I love this swap but it is sooooo time intensive that I always have a huge sigh of relief when done.
This is a desk organizer which I scraplifted but I can't for anything find the link - when I find it I will post it and give credit where credit is due.   I did not use this as a desk organizer.  Instead, I filled it with candy and gave it under the "share and share alike" category.

Wedding Layout

Yes, I have been married 15 years and YES I just put together our wedding pictures! Better late then never, right?

Brian received a watch from my husband to remember the
day we became a family.  He has since adopted Brian and
is the best father in the world.

We had alot of receipts and documents we put together for our wedding; we even had a sweet, sweet letter from my 90 year old grandmother offering her advice, so I made these pockets to include the documents with the photos.  I cut a 12 x 12 sheet of white paper diagonally and attached with my ATG 714, inked the edges and decorated.
