Hello all! Happy National Scrapbook Day! I'm not getting much scrappy time this weekend, but I am having a great day today so far, so I can't complain! I went out garage saling and got to go to the grocery store all by myself! Chris took off with the kids and I have had some quiet time...or not so quiet as I had the music blaring while I cleaned and did laundry!
On to some projects. Next week is Teacher Appreciation week. Peyton has such a fantastic teacher, I wanted to send something in to her every day. Here are a couple things I have made so far. I haven't been able to play along with the Paper Variety challenges for quite some time. I am excited to be able to play along with this months challenge, which is to use a handmade flower on your project.
These were cans of pears. I emptied them out from the bottom, washed them, filled them with mini snickers and taped the bottom back on. I am putting a fancy can opening on my wish list so that I can glue the cans back on.
I pulled a fun piece of paper from my scrap pile and cut a flower from my Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge to jazz it up.
Next thing I made were these:
Super simple...the best kind of project. The one with gumballs is for his PE teacher. It says 'Thank you for CHEWsing to teach. Peyton has a BALL with you'. Cheezy but cute!
And here is a couple of the things I found while out garage saling.
I've seen so many fun ideas with crates on Pinterest that at a buck, I snagged the one above quick. I can't decide if I want to hang it on the wall and have it be where Peyton puts his homework folder and papers, or if I want to find a spot for it in my kitchen. The metal things are trivets. I plan on spray painting them shiny red and then prettying up the tiles for the inside.
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you all are having (or had) a fab weekend!
