(front view)

( side view)

Hi all! I haven't made a creation in eons it seems!! So, I was supposed to make a trinket/treasure box for my kids for Christmas and I just finished yesterday! My mom even helped me finish Cohen's, as I was still stumped on my daughter's. I know-where's the glitter and bling? I wanted to put stickles all around the edges, but it's for a boy! Darn! This box matches my son's bedroom! He likes to save his treasures too like his mother! LOL! I'm entering the Magnolia Down Under Challenge (A gift for you), Anything Goes Challenge ( the letter C) Mine is C-for Cohen!! Crafty Emma's , Crafty Pad, (Anything goes). Hope u like! xox Trish

Use Kraft stock!

Hey all! I don't know about you-but I have never been able to find kraft stock at any Michaels stores, so I use file folders!! LOL.

Christmas Carol Sentiment!

Hey gang! This week's challenge over at DCD's Christmas Club is to use a Christmas Carol Sentiment. Sweetie pie and fellow DT member, Lynne, was so kind to give us some to use. Check out her site at Sentiments 4 You. I love this Tilda so much and wanted her her dress to be a lighter shade of green, but live and learn when you only own 3 dozen copics! I miss my prisma colour pencils and may revert soon! LOL! The silvery pine boughs aren't DPs, they're from an old Christmas card from one my students and I didn't part with the card, knowing I wanted to do something with it! I know-pack-ratting again! I'm proud to be so eco-friendly and recycle lots of treasures! lmao!! I'm entering Just Magnolia's challenge (Christmas),Alphabet (G-Glitter)and Stampin' with the Dragon (Make it Sparkle).

For The One You Love!

Hey gang! Happy Sunday! Christmas seems to be creeping up faster and faster! I'm getting excited for school to let out!! This week's challenge over at Totally Tilda is to make a card for the one you love. We all used sentiments from Dt member, Lynne's Digi Shop, Sentiments 4 You. I'm giving this to my parents for all the sacrifices and hard work they've done for me these past few months. It's a small token for what I really owe them! The shaped die- is from dear Susie at Die Cut Dreams and the papers are from Bo Bunny. The snowflake charm is from a candle I burnt last Christmas. My oldest sister calls me a pack-rat for saving doo-dads like this, and she pitched so much of my treasures when I moved into my new house-but a creative mind always sees a use for something right? I'm entering the following challenges: 2 Sisters (Sparkly Christmas), Secret Crafter (Christmas), Ai Factory (Winter), Let's Ink It Up! (Christmas Sparkle and Bling) and Paper Romance.

Happy 50th Anniversary!

Hey gang! Yes, I changed my blog look-I don't care for it very much-I would have liked something more wintery, but this will have to do for the time being, as it seems I have no time lately! LOL. I made this card for my grandmother's baby brother's upcoming 50th wedding anniversary this week-end in Hinton, Alberta. She only asked me last night!! So, this Tilda image is new and thank God already colored in the right shades, but the background is off my Cracker Christmas card! he he!! I added the 50th gold wreath, the gold roses and rings! Pheww! So, after school today, I've got to bring my Mom and my Mémère to the airport so they can attend this celebration, then I've got to attend a Math Inservice Friday morning, do a bit of Xmas shopping. Plus, I have to be at the arena for my son's hockey tourney Sat. and Sun., then back to the city on Monday for another Inservice, pick up my family at the airport in the evening. I feel exhausted already! Too lazy to look for challenges,okay, maybe just this one: Pixie Dust Studio (Wedding/Anniversary) Have a great week-end if I don't talk sooner! xox

Recycled Prima Tin!

Hey all! Just wanted to show off this recycled tin that I made hastily for my daughter's friend's party yesterday! I didn't have time to get a gift, so I made this little tin and put money inside it! Thanks Lori for the inspiration- but this tin pales in comparison, I couldn't add lace or extras because my glue gun hadn't any glue sticks!! I like the metal look somewhat! When it came time to shut the tin, the punched edge wouldn't let me close the tin! So, I bent the edges, and lace effect looked alright after all! I' entering I Did It Creations (Surprise Me), Let's Ink It Up! (No digis and recycle it!) and Craft Your Days Away (Texture) Hope you like! xox Trisha
