Hello Everyone,
Hope this is a blessed day for you, I woke up with a wicked migraine but still managed to get this posting out after taking some meds.  I worked on some projects last night to put in my booth at the store and I'm going to try and make a bunch.  I'm trying to keep the "Going Back To School" theme in mind and make little gifts for teachers and students.

The first project are Bookmarks made with  jumbo paper clips that I purchased from HEB for $1 ( Plastic Container of 25) I will think of something cute to do with the container later.  These bookmarks were made with scraps that I couldn't bare throwing away. 

This next project is a cute little paper treat "fold" idea made for Kitkat bars.  I used cutesy paper by Crate Paper & My Minds Eye.
These cute little baskets I've made before but I really like the texture of the crate paper double-sided design for the cuteness and sturdiness factor. I'm not sure what I'm going to fill these up with but it definitely will not be the truffles that I have in this pic, they were just for affect and I'm eating the chocolate.
 If  I'm not mistaken I have a tutorial on my blog for this basket, check the archives.
Lastly I couldn't have ended my work without my first love of crafts so I created a nice card for a teacher
 I actually used the back of new line of paper that The Scrapbooking Factory Just got in called JOY RIDE by Cosmo Cricket.  I suppose the black paper with the dashed and solid lines are suppose to be roads, but they look like school paper to me, so I thought it would go great with my teacher card.  I cut out the apple with my Cricut (George Basic Sampler.)  I have been waiting for the moment to use my self adhesive cork paper that I got from Michael's and last night I did it. YEAH!!

Lastly here is my latest layout that I will be displaying in Jane's store at the Scrapbooking Factory.  I thought It came out pretty cute, it's funny now all of a sudden my children are taking a little bit of interest in what I display.  Trust me it's not a compliment to my work the kids just want to make sure that I'm not putting anything out that will embarrass them!

I used a really lovely set of papers from My Little Yellow Bicycle called "Zinnia." These are not my favorite papers but they really are lovely and I can't do everything "PINK" all of  the time!
I will be teaching a couple of classes this month at the Scrapbooking Factory and would love to have you join me, you can check out the dates of the classes by going to the stores website: thescrapbookingfactory.blogspot.com
