Stampalooza shoebox projects.,

And last but not least.... a snowman..the three circles are connected so that he swings down so that all layers are on top of each other, and his nose is a little electric lite... he's cute. and all we had to do was put him together!

Stampalooza shoebox projects.,

This is a gift card...and
this one was little tuff... the large red ribbon had to be cut down the sides  with a craft knife... I'm not that handy with the knife so it came out not nice.. fortunately you can't tell in the pic.

Okey doekey...

I'll be uploading pics from Stampalooza event that was held on October 26,2013.  Starting with these 2 shoebox projects.
The top one is very simple.. just tape and assemble... as are most of the shoeboxes.
The bottom one is a fake window card... cute don't ya think.??
I had a great time ... 20 shoe box projects and lots of door prizes.
I won 2 door prizes, one was a little stamping carry tote.. perfect for the day...and the other was a roll of washi tape, some mini brads packaged together  and a grand door prize that only cost me 5bucks... Yep,, and it was actually something I really wanted..... the envelope punch!!! I'm already making envies and little boxes!...
Food was prepped by Wegmans,,, delicious.. salads, pitas, cookies...Yummy

Labor Day trip

Our short visit to Massachusetts Labor Day weekend. That's my son Nick in foreground, and hubby Steve in the back.  We were walking on the pier in Plymouth harbor.  It juts out into the ocean and Nick wanted to say he had seen the ocean.... not like he hasn't seen it before, but hey, whatever he wants... it was our first 'Family" vacation since Nick was 18 months old just the 3 of us.....  Time flies,,,, he'll be 32 y.o in October. It was a cloudy day, and wasn't sure about going on whale watch that day,, maybe next year with Erin and Kay and Molly.
