my husband my hero
girl friday love on a tuesday

earlybird love

i'm on a little vacay...from makin' coffee and being a mom...i have a week off from sbux and we dropped off nic in arizona for a week of volleyball on saturday...we will return to phoenix on wednesday afternoon, but till days are filled with creativity and relaxation...just what i needed!!!

so, what did i do today? i took the pup for a long walk, i cleaned the house (not too industriously though), and then...i played...with my current favorite paper...cosmo cricket's earlybird...

first up...a little something i picked up from the thrift store a while back...

the $5.95 wee chest of drawers before...and, after:

with a bit of patterned paper, ready-set-chip board, buttons, ribbon, tiny attacher, copics, ivory crochet thread, frayed burlap distress ink, and some is what you get!

be sure to click on the picture to see it up close and personal like...i am in love!

and, then, there are these...

a few cards that i 'threw' together with scraps from the case you didn't notice on the drawers, take a look here...i used copic markers to color some of the black and white images in the paper's a fun, neat trick for customizing papers...

and, finally, this:

again, using some of the scraps from the box...i made a tag for a jar of homemade corn salsa i made for the hostess of a bbq we are heading to on 4th of make the tag look more 'authenitic' (LOL) i punched out a half inch circle over a 1/4 inch circle punched in cardstock and adhered it over another 1/4 inch circle punched in my the look of this...

well, hope you enjoyed the results of my fun today...i have BIG plans to play some more tomorrow!

Too cute! I love that paper, too. It's one I wish I had bought more of. Your box redux is adorable. Is it a cardboard box? And you didn't include your recipe for the corn salsa. :(


How coooool is that?! I love it!
And I'm a bit envious of the vacay! hee hee! Your kid is at least old enough to fend for oldest is only 7! lol.
