This week our assignment was to scraplift a fellow DT member. I always love it when we get these kinds of assignments!
This first layout is a scraplift of Karen (Sethro). I used Basic Grey Kioshi papers...I thought it was great paper for Easter.

This second layout is a scraplift of Gina (GinaL). I loved all her white space and simple design.

Come to the gallery at HOP to see everyone elses scraplifts! Dont forget to check out the store. Chiara is always have some kind of sale and shipping is really reasonable!

Birthday Boxes

I felt like being crafty last night. I really should have scrapped a layout but made these little boxes instead. I used some of my old stash...Basic Grey Color Me Silly paper, Studio G stamp, and White cardstock. Wouldnt these be great as party favors with treats inside? Or a cute box to put a small gift in?

I will have my stuff for House of Paper to share tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by!

On this layout I used Basic Grey Green at Heart papers.

Easter Boxes

Jeff and I were asked to be a Ma and Pa for Trek this year. We just got our official list of "our kids" for Trek. We thought it would be fun to take around a treat to let them know we would be their Ma and Pa on Trek. I made these little boxes out of cardstock, then filled them with candy eggs. I covered the boxes with paper and stamped the eggs for the tags. Inside the tag it says: We are so "egg"cited to be your Ma and Pa for Trek! I hope they like them.

I will have more scrapbook stuff to post on Tuesday!
