Wedding Shadow Box

After a couple hours..I think I got it!! I cut my letters just a little too big the first time around.I bought the "outfits" and to make them fit, I had to cut and piece together some paper dolls. So my dolls vary in size from 3 1/2 inches to 4 1/2 inches..I used Storybook to cut the letters (shadow and regular) at 1 1/2 inches. I have a corner punch that I used for the corners. I hope my sister and her fiance like it.

What do you think? I wish I had more shadow boxes..I think they make great gifts!!

"My Boys" Layout!!

Yippee!! I got a layout done today!! I love being able to do a challenge or two!! The layout is of my 2 doggies!
I used some DCWV paper and some regular cardstock..used Learning Curve for my font and used good ole' George for my circles. I had some chipboard stickers so I used those (I love being able to use up my stash of goodies!) And some ribbon, a few shaped brads, a border punch, a white pen for the dots..and there you go..there is my layout!!

What do you think? Leave me some comments!! I love them!

2nd project for August The Cuttlebug Blog!!

This is my last project for August! I created a mini altered comp book...it would be a great little book to have when on vacation to write down little notes that you want to remember!
I used my Seeing Spots CB folder, some rhinestones and a jeweled dolphin sticker that my friend Erica sent me! I used one of my border punches for the top and some silver ink!

My project for SSPT!!

Hello everyone!! August means a new challenge is issued over at Sugar Sweet Paper Treats!! (http://www.sugarsweetpapertreats.blogspot.com) and the challenge was to create a non traditional opening card (can't open from the top or side)..so I found this template in my one magazine, changed it just a little (no scalloped edges) and in about 10 minutes I had this card made! This card could be used for all kinds of occasions don't you think? You could add a cut out or a stamped image you colored then cut out..oh the possibilities!

I hope you like it!!
