It's Friday and it's an exciting day for Taylor with her new stamp release! Pop over and check it out on her blog here! Congrats Taylor!
Here's Taylors Sketch for this week

As you can see, I did an altered project rather than a card this week. You can see how easy Taylors Sketches are to adapt to things other and cards. I often use them for altered projects and layouts also. Thanks Taylor for the inspiration!

This was one of the old cigar boxes my friend Rainy sent to me . She was so generous.. and sent me this huge box of alterables.. I've been so excited to dig into. I've also had this Graphic 45 paper that has been calling my name, so it was fun to get a chance to use them both.

I used a large vintage button, for the knob on the top, I added a brass piece to the center , and then a punched out piece of matching paper for the center.

I'm sure .. as always the other girls on the cupcake crew will have beautiful creations to share with you today.. so be sure to pop over and check them out

Yesterday my niece Kiley came over and we worked on some bridal shower invitations for a shower she is putting on for a friend. It was fast and furious..but we got them finished. SO fast and furious.. I cant believe it , but I didn't even take a photo of one of the invitations before she left.. and worse than that, I didn't even get a chance to take an photos of Halle. eeekkk, I know! That tells you how busy we were. Finally as they were rushing out the door to go pick up the boys from Pre School, I snapped a quick one of her.... ( and look at that lip ... she was so sad)
Ready to get moving. I'm sure once they got moving, and in the car, she was fine..but she was not happy right at this point. Poor babe.. she was not in the mood for crafting. lol
Well.. the sun is shining today.. so I'm thrilled! Off to get some things done.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
