fun little projects...




I have a fun little project for you today...


First go to the $1 section at your target and get one of these cute little calendars...







You might as well stop by electronics, the scrapbooking section, the grocery aisle, toy department and housewares since you're already there and spend $100 even though you went there to get one item for $1.00... at least that's what I did...


next gather some scraps...

I used my leftovers from a layout I did
last night since they were still on my table,
I used a "only use it if it's in plain sight" rule...

trim paper to match the cover
and embellish as desired ...





and Voila your 2008 purse calendar....




I made this one for me, but I'm going to have the boys make them for their teachers itty bitty buckets for Christmas...more on the buckets later since they aren't done yet...This project took about 10 minutes
this would make a great homemade gift for anyone and the the great thing is you can do it with stuff you already have










and here's what I did with the "teeny weeny album" from 7gypsies...



this will be my Dad's Christmas present...everyone..except for the boys are getting handmade presents this year and believe me if I could figure out how to make my own Xbox 360 or Darth Vader/Death Star Transformer, I would....




and here is my layout for Lain's 30-minute Thursday challenge...
the challenge was to do a layout using numbers...these are the lyrics from the begginning of Seasons of Love, from Rent...I have always wanted to used these lyrics in a layout...




Again, I used a bunch of scraps here, and I didn't sew, even though it looks like I did, these are pre sewn mats from Chatterbox...

I work for the next 3 days, so I don't know if I'll be here tomorrow, but Wed is a short day so I hope to be here then...until then everybody have a great night!!

Hi Amy!

Thanks for the comments! I like your layout...LOVE the use of scraps and it's amazing how much they change over a year, isn't it? Your project is TOO cute too!

I'm an Army wife, so I just had to comment on that too:).

Laughing about the other $100...been there, done that!

Loving your new projects! Love that little calendar idea and the layout about the boys is great! It's amazing how much they change at this age...I may just have to scraplift this idea... smiles!

isn't it funny Amy how we go somewhere with a specific place in mind and then end up spending money on other things. LOve your wee gift, and I would love to know more about the itty bitty buckets.
