For this weeks CCC (last one, boo hoo) on Linda's blog the challenge is Design Details. I wanted to use some of the new toys that I have gotten. I started out with a whole different plan in mind and chucked it then went with something else then chucked it, wasted a lot of time and I just could not not participate in the last challenge!! Finally ended up with a travel box for memorabilia.
I always have memorabilia from trips etc. and wanted a box to store them in until I figured out a good use for them. I don't have much of the technique called for in the challenge on it but it's there. And oh I had fun using some of the new things I have added to my stash recently!! I did the tag with Broken China Distress Stains then added a little peeled paint Distress Inks here & there on it. And yes, I kinda did the tag like Tim did on his last blog post, I had just gotten the stamps so it was nice to see an idea for them. The new Distress Stains are absolutely wonderful, love them!!! And the Old Jalopy die cut and travel stamps are pretty awesome to! Stampers Anonymous has the best stamps!!
I'm leaving Sun. for another trip, going to go see our son Shad & his family in Kansas, so excited to see them! Shad is in the Army and leaves for Afghanistan the first part of April, so it will be a bitter sweet visit. After all these years you'd think I would be used of it, but I hate it!! So the major worrying will begin again for another year!! Shad's little boy Kevin is 4 years old now, so it is going to be harder for him this time around!! Hey, on a happier note I found out I'm going to be a grandma again, our son Joey & his wife are going to have another baby this Sept. I have 4 grandsons now so I'm really hoping they have a girl, will she be spoiled or what!! lol
I have to pay more attention to my shopping, I ordered Tim's small Visual Artistry stamps and I already had them!! So how about a give away, just leave a comment and I will choose a random winner on Mon. 3/21/11 when I get back.
Have a good weekend everyone!!
