Halloween Treats

Life has been crazy at my house for this past week, but I did manage to make a couple of Halloween gifts using American Crafts products from Rocky Mountain Hobbies.
I found a tutorial to make this acetate box over at SCS.

I also made this cute twist box. I found a template for it and decided to give it a try. Cute huh?

I hope to make more fun stuff with my American Crafts paper...hopefully Ill find some time to sit down and do some more.
Thanks for stopping by!

Football Injury

Brady got hurt at football practice on Tuesday night. When I showed up to the school, they already had his arm wrapped so I didnt see it. When we went to the hospital he was in so much pain that they decided to do x-rays first and see where we were at. Thats the first time I saw his was obviously broken. He had surgery on Wednesday to fix it. Poor guy, football season is over. Probably wont be wrestling either. He was also supposed to start drivers ed. on Oct. 5 (the day after his birthday) but they said he will have a cast up to his shoulder and cant do that so we had to cancel.
Here he is at the hospital before surgery.

Brady hadnt seen what his arm looked like, so I asked the doctor to take pictures before he fixed it.

Hes doing fairly well. Some pain, but its alot better since the surgery. Brady has had lots of support from friends and we so appreciate it!
Get feeling better sweetie!

The DT at Rocky Mountain Hobbies were asked to create a layout based on my sketch below. I created this sketch based on this layout (click on link)

I didnt want this layout to look exactly like the other one, so I changed it a little bit. I used the June Bug collection again (I used it on my Eagle Project layout, too). I just love the colors of this collection. I also used Bazzill cardstock, Pink Paislee stamp, Autumn Leaves stamp, Cuttlebug Red Tag Sale lettering, and Fiskars Apron Lace border punch.

Thanks for stopping by! Ill have more to post by next Sunday!

Eagle Project layout

We are showcasing Basic Grey paper over at Rocky Mountain Hobbies this week. I chose the June Bug line. I just loved the colors of the line and thought they would work great for Brady's layout about his Eagle Project. I scanned the layout because I think scanning shows a better representation of the colors, but I have a hard time stitching it all together and getting it to line up...anyway, here is what I came up with using the June Bug line. I also used element stickers, alphabet stickers, and buttons from Basic Grey on here.

Be sure to check out what the other DT members make using Basic Grey over in the RMH gallery!
