From the Files Challenge

So I received Photoshop Elements for Christmas and have been able to get back to Digital Scrapbooking which I love!!! Lucky for me I have a great friend who has been giving me tips and back up to speed with everything in the digi world. So this is my first Challenge, it is from the Digi files and it was so much for fun to play around with what we have to work with. Thanks to The Daily Digi for creating such a great Idea!!

Magnetic Bulletin Board

I made 2 of these bulletin boards a couple months ago, one for my sister in law's birthday and one for myself. I got the idea from Anna Maria Horner's Book "Seams to Me", which I absolutely love. She has some really cute ideas and patterns in it. It was simply to make and I love the magnets that I made with it.

Step Right Up...

The first five people to leave a comment on this blog willreceive something made by me.

However there are some limitations
1. I make no guarantee that you will like what I make.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done this year. (might take a while)
4. You have no clue what it is going to be, blocks, sign, or a little invention of my own. I may bake something and mail it to you . Who knows? Not you that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange. It may blow your mind!

Here's the catch, if you choose to do this. You must post this on your blog and be ready to make something for five people too. This will be fun! When you receive the fabulous item I make you, you must post a picture of it on your blog.

Life at its craziest!

Sorry I have been gone so long, I have had a major upset in my life and I am feeling like I am starting from scratch.  It you really have to know (for those of you who don't all ready) what is going on you can go to my family blog to find out what is going on.  I will have some craft posts to share soon, just waiting for some presents to get to different people so I don't ruin the surprise. Thanks for being patient.

Fall Leaves

I haven't really had a chance to decorate for fall but I have been enjoying the changing colors of the leaves though it seems to be taking a while. Today as I stood at the bus stop waiting for Colin, I noticed that only one tree on our street has changed color all the way to a magnificent orange. I wish I had my camera on me, but since I didn't I thought it would be fun to bring some of that color in to our home. After Colin's bus came we went over and gathered some leaves for our table, I really wasn't sure what to do with them. But I found a crystal bowl we received for our wedding and this is what I came up with. The plus is that it was completely free but the draw back in using real leaves is that they will dry out and have to be replaced every couple days. I won't light the candle it is just for looks I am not looking to start a fire in my house. If I had an electric one that would be fun to have in the middle.

Family Notebook

I have been struggling with organizing all my papers that I need to keep, they normally end up in a pile that I go through a couple times a week.  So when I saw this simple idea on the blog "The Gift Closet" I knew it would work perfect for us.  I needed a way to keep things simple and safe.  I have a pile of things Colin has done at school that eventually will probably have there own notebook but for right now this will work great.  There is a deferent section for my piles and I can always add more.  I finally sat down and made it last night between Colby's 15 min naps. But I got it done, now I just need to buy more page protectors.
