Iggy Vacation Prank Pt 3

So today is Friday and Melissa is out sick so Iggy and Friend will be returning Monday morning just worn out from their vacation adventure
In the afternoon mail run Iggy will receive a package from AK Studio, an album to put the memories of their 2011 vacation in.

Front and Back views of the mini album of Iggy and Friends vacation.

Inside views of the album with post cards.

In the back of the album is a sheet of mug shots from the Las Vegas Police Dept...
You've heard the saying... What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas..........

This was a blast to pull off, loved every minute of it and I had the perfect excuse to buy that post card stamp I have been wanting for such a long time....

Iggy Vacation Prank pt 2

So on Thursday morning Melissa received a post card from the Grand Canyon and in the afternoon she received another post card from The World's Largest Ball of Twine.
On the Grand Canyon card Iggy noted a little trouble in Las Vegas...

Iggy and friend are pictured on all of the post cards...

Iggy Vacation Prank

I have just finished helping my sister pull off the cutest office prank. One of her co workers has a stuffed lizard on her desk that she has named Iggy, she added a friend lizard that she did not name. This year when Melissa went on vacation, my sister thought Iggy looked a little bored and wanted to go on vacation himself with his friend. So on the Monday morning of Melissa's return she found a note on her desk from Iggy and friend that they had struck out on a vacation of their own. On Tuesday morning she received a post card from St Louis, Iggy and friend had stopped off for a beer and in the afternoon mail run she received another post card from Mt Rushmore.
On Wednesday morning she received a post card from the Dinosaur Monument in Utah and in the afternoon a post card from Las Vegas.

I have to move......

I just found out that I have to move. I have been living in my Grandmothers house for two years now and she just passed away last June. Nursing Homes are very expensive so the house has to be sold to cover her medical bills and to pay back Medicaid. I really hoped my sister and would have gotten to keep the house, but no such luck. So now I am house hunting. I haven't rented in over twenty years. But we really need more room then we have here. So house hunting I will go.....
Our annual Crop for the cure is coming up again, I can't wait....  Here is a couple pics from 2010.

Little ole Cricut Bug

I got my first Cricut in January 2010, it took a little while to get started but now that I have every extra moment ( not a lot of them might I add ) goes to crafting. I hope to someday have my own room, for now I have a corner in my bed room. The cricut head design I got from watching You Tube videos. I Love You Tube!
This is the first time using vinyl. I think I like it too.

Cigar Box, Altered

This is a cigar box I found in my Grandmothers house . I spruced it up a bit.
 This is my first altered project. I removed the label from the top but kept the one inside the box.
 I keep photo paper and cords for the camera in it, the camera never seems to make it in the box.

Grandmothers Trinket Box

Here is a project I did shortly after my Grandmother passed away. She is a beautiful lady and will be missed always. I used a section of her lavender pearls and a picture of her in her thirties for the top.

Beginner Blogger

Well, it seems my brand new blog may undergo many changes while I am learning to blog. Still looking for pretties and how to apply them to my blog.

2011 Calendar Box from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon

Well, here is the completed calender box. I think it turned out pretty good. I used the Rustic stack from DCWV. Love it. I used the Tim Holtz rusted metal technique for the swirl on top, a picture can be tucked under it for display. The small tag on the top is the pull to open the easel with, got it from the outside of the grunge paper letter package, already had an eyelet on it. I have only made January and February so far, looks like this may be a year long project. I used stencil material for the days and attached with brads so they can be changed if needed. I really loved making this project. Looking forward to Kathy's new projects for 2011.

Here is my Halloween House, also from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon.

My Gingerbread House, got it from Kathy at Paper Phenomenon.
I got this at Hobby Lobby, painted it and glued on one of my Grandmothers old pins. I love little things from her in my work. Cost: $3.00

Wall Sign

I made this sign from a doller store plaque that was not very attractive to start out.

My first post

I love scrapbooking and creating beautiful projects with paper. I am not lucky enough to come up with the ideas myself but have found a lot of wonderful ladies who are willing to share theirs.
