Recycled Cereal Box

For a while I have been searching for something to keep
my 12"x12" scrapbook papers in. I wanted something that
would stand on my large computer table and where I
could easily see what I had. 

I just cut off a side of the box and then covered it with
pictures I cut out of a magazine. I used Modge Podge
over the box and after pasting the pictures, went over
them with Modge Podge.  Easy! Any feedback welcome.

Cards I've Made Lately

Well, I must say I've been absent from here for a while, but not
because I haven't continued making cards.  Perhaps I needed
a little time-out. But I'm back now.  I am adding some cards I
have recently made, but am not adding all the materials used
this time.   Also I am not on any design teams at present, so
I suppose that is another reason I haven't been active here.

Pattie's Creations Challenge #104 - Happy Birthday

This is my last card for Pattie's Creations DT.  Altogether I
have been with Pattie for about a year and a half and
had a lot of fun using her images. I wish all the rest of
the DT all the best and to continue with their lovely work.

Do take part in this challenge - just take note that you
should include any Digital or Stamped Image on your
creation! Stop on over to Pattie's ETSY Shop and have a look
at her many images. Don't forget to check out the Freebie First
Friday of the Month page. The Freebie will be available for
3 days, and then it will be removed from the site!
The challenge starts now and ends Thursday, November 27th 
at 1pm CST (Central Standard Time).
Have a look at this week's DT and their creations! You can check
their details by clicking on their names to leave some Luv at their

Now I am spending quite a lot of time getting to know about
Mixed Media - so watch this page!  I now have a 'craft room'
and the salon table is no longer overrun with all my crafting 
goods. I still have to find a solution for my 30x30 scrapbook
pages, but I know what to look for. I would like it on my
worktable, as what's better than having this paper at hand!
If it takes up too much room on my table, I have other ideas.
I have a round table behind me (next to a couch/bed), which
I use for my mixed media projects.
