Altered Journals

I was cleaning out my craft area and found these journals I bought last year after Christmas on sale. They were actually pretty blah, but I bought them with the intent of altering them. I had forgotten all about them! I used retired SU! paper and other papers I have in my stash. I like how they turned out. I'll be selling these once I get my Artfire store up and going. If you are interested in purchasing one before then, just email me.

Soda Can Bat

My son made this cute, cute, cute bat while a zoo day camp. I just love it!! The body is a crushed soda can painted black. The wings are cut out of foam and he just painted the eyes, mouth, and fangs. I will definitely be using this idea in my classroom this Halloween. The kids are going to love it! What a great way to recycle those cans!

Father's Day Card

Here is a card I made for my husband for Father's Day. We always play "SlugBug" when we are in the car with our son, so I thought this would be a cute card to make. How many of you remember playing that when you were little? I cased the card from Lauren Yang on Stampin' Connection. I changed mine a bit with the grass and sentiment. Both my husband and son loved the card!

Coaster Picture Frame

 Here is coaster picture frame I made for my husband for Father's Day. He didn't have any current pictures of our son, so I thought I'd make him a little something to fix that! I adhered DSP on the front and back of the coasters since you can see both sides when in his office.
