Shoebox swap stuff

Here is a sneak peak of my doorprize for the North Texas Shoebox swap this weekend. I made an A2 card keeper using matboard and the SU Western Sky Designer Paper. Then I made a little chocolate themed chipboard book in coordinating papers. I also purchased a nice crafting book and a Hero Arts stamp set that I found at Archivers. I decorated a coffee bag to match too.I hope its a good enough doorprize.
I will post more pictures of the inside pages of my chocolate book later.

Where have I been?

I have been doing things around my home and with my family and staying busy with life. I have made a few things in preparation for the upcoming North Texas SCS gathering. I made my shoebox card and my name tag, a few little items for my door prize. I will try to get pictures posted this week. Today I am having a special treat courtesy of my hubby. I was given a gift certificate for a house cleaning service. They are here to clean my ceiling fans , window blinds and sills, dust my baseboards ect...All the stuff I absolutely hate doing! I am really hoping they do a good job in the time they have allotted. Anyway, I will get back to crafting as soon as I can. Dear daughter has 2 proms to attend and we have been shopping and stuff for that too. Its nails and pedicures this week too for her. Life is crazy sometimes!

I am no Debbie Olson.....

but I love her art and I can case it! OK, so it is not just like her beautiful card here but she inspired me to drag out the new stuff and the old stuff and make something. I have never had any luck using the Green Thumb set, it might have something to do with my brown thumb*wink* I kill all plant life. I also gave paper pleating a first time try after seeing some cute things in a Paper crafting magazine this month. I broke out the new Dew Drops too. Hope I get my groove back soon.

*Paper: Papertrey Ink Moss, Berry, and Blush, white, and Pinks Designer Papers
*Ribbon and sentiment also Papertrey Ink
*Embellishments stickles, dew drops, and Swavorski crystals, Prima flowers
