Hanging out with my BFF

Yesterday I got to go shopping with my very dear friend Cheri, we have know each other since sophomores in high school…and no I am not telling you how many years ago that was! We always wait until we get coupons for at least 40% off or better and yesterday we got 50% off at Michaels! I bought this adorable little box as it reminded me of Elizabeth from Bluebird Papercrafts adorable vintage painted silverware boxes!

I am going to add a little “bling” with some glitter and such, but is this not cute????? They had two designs.

We then when to JoAnn’s and I got this adorable vintage style fabric!

It has the cutest graphics….I am going to make a lamp shade out of a portion of it, I need to get out my old lamp and paint it red! LOL

I am also working on my tags for E’s Christmas Tag swap….we are using the colors mint green, light blue, pink and red. I saw this packet of paper at Michaels and got it for 50% off too! I had two coupons, so I just bought things twice! Smile

Some are glittery and it is all cardstock so it is nice and thick. This is going to be fun! I will probably use the whole stack with having to make 22 tags!!!!! Can’t wait! Cricut here I come! LOL

Hi Sandy,
I love that vintage styled fabric, oh so cute. I'm sure your Christmas tags will come out wonderful with all that pretty paper.
