Back to Craftin”

I joined Elizbaeth of  Creative Breathing for a fun “Boxed Lunch Tag Swap”.  She always comes up with such fun themes! 

So I went looking for images and papers….and found these…


Lucky girl…she has two beaus! 


A mixture of October Afternoon papers and the Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges…thank goodness for my Cricket!


Some fun shapes and words, and of course part of my stash of goodies….



And this is what I came up with!


I did everyone a little different, I just go with what I pick up off of the table…:)

The back of one…


I get myself all worked up trying to find a “theme”…I do it every time, and it ticks me off frankly!  I have to quit it, perfectionism be gone!

Once I get in the groove I have such a good time….thanks E for having this swap!

Sandy, I had to pop back after reading the previous post. Congrats to your son. I'm a Texas girl(Dallas), but you should go check out Austin. It's a great and unique city. My son is also a budding music man-he's still in college, so who knows what's in store for him. Hang in there and keep in touch with your son.

Cute, cute, cute!!!! I can't wait to get mine! I am definitely making a garland of these cards when they arrive. I found the same picnic picture and added it to my files. What a fun theme! =D

Such cute tags! I love the colors and the vintage images. I have been busy making tags for Tammy's (Tammys in love) cartoon swap. It is soooo much fun.

Your tags are adorable Sandy! I love the image you chose (Lucky Me-cracks me up!)and OA papers always make projects look their happiest! Great job!

Corey said...

Boy, I know exactly what you mean about perfectionism! I drive myself crazy with it!!

You were right about my doll- she is a Ruth E. Newton, So-Wee. I tried squeaking her, but just air came out, so the squeaker must be broken. She's so adorable, I don't mind!

Sandy I had to come back and tell you how much I love your ceramic yule log. It does look like a vintage one. I'm so happy to see a return of this hobby. I used to absolutely love going to Ceramics as well!
So glad your son got to TX safely. I know how hard the distance is for you. Take care, Elizabeth

SueLovesCherries said...

Great theme, Sandy! They're so cute! If I wasn't so busy in the garden, I would have joined in, too. I have a tag swap idea for this summer, though! ;)

I absolutely love your Yule Log - it looks so professional!

Soooo cute! Luv your images!
Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Sandy, Your tags arrived today, and they are absolutely wonderful! I love all the buttons. I had to choose for myself one with a bluebird. I'm looking through previous posts for favorite photos to post along with your tags. You have been a wonderful and dear friend to me here in this community. I think of you often. Have a great weekend, E
