Off to a slo-o-o-o-w start........

hmmmm....maybe this is going to be one of those "once a month posts" blogs. To be honest, I've busy debating on whether to continue with this or not. While I continue to debate with myself I will go ahead and post a photo or two of my most recent projects.

The first photo is a magnet that I made for a swap at http://swap-bot.com/. We were to create a vintage themed magnet. The floral background is actually a from a wallpaper sample from a sample book that I found at a Flea Market. I believe it is a 60ish vintage.

The next photo is of a "skinny" page. In order to be a "skinny", the size must be 5" x 3". This was for another swap at . We were required to make an arch shaped skinny, but we were free to do any theme.

The last photos is a "Christmas Tree Box" that I created for the Card Maker magazine forum, This was "pre-crop" challenge. You've gotta be an online paper crafter to understand what "pre-crop" means.
