Teacher Basket - DTC #108...

Welcome to the Decorate  to Celebrate Challenge #108....

School is back in session and I'm DECORATING my son's teacher's room with this little Back To School Celebratory gift...hehehehehe.

We always go to "Meet the Teacher" a few days before school starts. I like this for a couple of reasons, one of the being that it makes the 1st day a little less awkward for the kids since they've already met their teacher...another reason being that I get to scope out the Teacher's Room and see how she decorates...what color scheme does she have...what's her style. This year's teacher LOVES grays and teals so I made her this little basket....

Both of the gifts were super simple to do but this box of crayons was the simplest...literally took me 15 minutes. I bought a bunch of Crayola 24-count crayon boxes (I think 4 fit in this jar), emptied them in then tied a ribbon around. I thought about labeling it somehow but decided not to so she can do whatever she wants with it later.
My next "gift" was this marquis D from Heidi Swapp! I've been soooooo wanting to do some of these for my scrap studio but haven't had the time. After doing this one little letter, I'm definitely hooked...I'm not scrambling to think of a 4 or 5 letter word that will fit on the fireplace in my studio.
I used CTMH Basic Fundamental Cardstock in Slate for the D and then used the teal heart washi to add a little somethin-somethin to the outside and inside of the D. I love how it turned out and so did she!

My Favorite Peeps with Let's Scrap...

It's the 1st of the month which means it's time for a NEW Let's Scrap Sketch...AND some special announcements concerning the Design Team. I'm so honored to be on for another term...LOVE the Let's Scrap Sketches and can't wait to show you what the next 6 months has in store for you guys!

Here's my take on the sketch...let me just say that this layout might be one of my FAVORITES!!! Not only are some of "my FAVORITE peeps" featured on this layout but it also gives me those wonderful, glorious squares that are a perfect fit for all my Instagram Photos AND all the other squares are perfect for all those tiny embellishments I've been hoarding...uhhhhh, I mean saving for a layout such as this!

Here's a look at the sketch!

Don't forget to head over to the Let's Scrap Blog and check out all the other DT's artwork AND link up!

And...we have UNITY Stamp Company as our Sponsor this week!

Love with all your might...

It's a new month and that means a NEW Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge!!!

I decided to do a OTP (Off The Page) project this month. This necklace was inspired by this month's Scripture Focus...

Have you ever tried  making your own jewelry with scrapbooking supplies you have lying around? It's super simple! While I used actual CTMH Supplies meant for these pendants, you could easily trim any sticker into a square and add any flat embellishments to the square then add your clear protective 'bubble'. 

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to go check out the other DT Members' projects AND take a look at this month's sketches.

Homemade FROZEN Waffles with PPPR...

It's my turn again to post over at the PPPR Blog and I'm really excited about this share!

Today I'm sharing a layout documenting the waffle bar we had a couple of weekends ago. My daughter is in love with the movie Frozen...I mean who isn't, right? So...I had the great idea of making her "FROZEN" waffles by adding some snow-themed sprinkles to the batter before I threw them in the waffle maker then adding some on top once they were cooked. The waffles really did turn out pretty tasty..definitely will be a repeat recipe!

Look at all those layers...LOVE that about Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files!

Here's a look at the files I used...

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope my layout inspires you to either create or make FROZEN waffles!!!

No more glasses...

It's my turn to post over on the PPPR Blog and I'm here with a layout share using the Floppy Disk Cutting File...

Here are some closeups...I use my Gossamer Blue Kit from last month for the paper and the "No More" Thickers from American Crafts.

I also cut the glasses from a transparency so it would look like real lenses....

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to go grab this week's FREEBIE before it's not free anymore!
