Altered silver tray with Lush paper

I bought this tray at the dollar store. Used lush paper with other embellishments. Used Big Bite to make the holes in the tray to attached black rose ribbon.

world-wide blog inspiration

I talked to Christy the other day
& we both agreed that linking
inspiration to other peoples blogs
would be a good thing.
She carries so many wonderful products,
but the design team doesn't always
get to use each & every thing.
So periodically,
we'll link you to another blog
that showcases products Christy
has in-stock or has carried in the past.
She wants her customers to USE THEIR products!!
Today I have 2 blogs to show you:

here, Ingrid Danvers, uses
some of the My Minds Eye Lush Blue.

and here, Peet Roeven, uses
some of the My Minds Eye Jack & Jill collection here;
and then again here My Minds Eye Jack & Jill collection.
& then My Minds Eye Lush Pink here.

Christy currently has these products in the store,
and I, personally, want to work with ALL of them.
Tomorrow I'll upload some projects
using the "Little Boy Blue" collection,
mixed with the Brown LUSH and Cosmo Cricket Earth Love.
So stop by if you like these projects
and get these products before she sells out!!

***Free Class***

We are beginning a new club at Scraphappy. This club is about sharing and learning various arts & craft hobbies and the items we make will be donated back into our community. The first meeting is Friday March 26, 5:00 - 7:00 pm. I am teaching a class on 5 techniques to use when making cards. The cards we make will be donated to operationhomewrite.org Other items may be a baby scrapbook for a pregnancy resource center or something for a retirement home. If you have any suggestions please let us know. The club will meet twice a month and I hope by doing this you can join us for a meeting. Trying to find a date that fits into everyone's schedule is difficult but we want everyone to have a couple of choices to join us. We don't have a name yet for our club. If you have any suggestions on a name for the club please post a comment to this post. Christy will choose a couple of the names you come up with and at our first meeting on Friday 3/26, we will all vote to decide on a name. If you want to join this club or donate items let me know.
