Awesome Explosion Box !

Happy Sunday! 

Today I went to CT to hang out with some friends at and take an explosion box class taught by Sue at Treasured Memories.  She is amazing!  Her store is located in Watertown, CT and I highly recommend checking her out. The store will start doing online challenges in about a month.  Can't wait!  

This is my amazing finished product!  Love, love, love!

NSD 2014 --I did a few challenges so far !

It was so nice not to work this NSD day!  I enjoyed being on the board and taking challenges.  It was a very nice day in RI and that made it hard to stay inside crafting.  

I did a Sing-A-Song challenge and I made an Olaf card for my Daughter.  I will add a recorded button with Olaf singing his snowman in summer song.  
Next was a Make-Mine-A-Mini !  You were to watch a Youtube video on making a one page mini album and then create one yourself.  This was awesome!  

And the last challenge I have completed.  Make something inspired by Sis's mini-album, either the beach or the way it was made...etc.  I chose try to make an album with the hidden hinge system.  

I used chipboard for the bookbinder, book pages and front and back covers.  The pages are back to back pages making them very thick and sturdy.   I have not embellished much as this project is not for anyone-- yet!  
This is the hidden binder

Easter Swap on Circle Board 2014

I did the Easter Swap again this year..... and it was a little rushed but I still managed to make what I think is an awesome basket.  I had a round box I had been saving to make something with and some paper that I had been hoarding!  I decided to use them and make this her "basket"  I also made her an Egg that came out a little "odd" and a Beautiful tag that I did not get pictures of :(    I stuffed her basket below with little stuff and candy.  She also received a RI Tshirt, 2 pack of Cricut Mats, 3 packs of cricut vinyl, Tacky Tape, pop dots round and square.  I love the way the "basket" turned out.  I wish I had gotten a picture of the inside of the basket

This is the basket that I received from my partner JoJoy! 
Can't wait to make the Tim Holtz clock and try out the Ribbon Sealer!  


I did a Book Swap on the Cricut Circle Board........

What a great swap!  I had fun dipping my toes back into the message board swaps.  I missed being with the gals, but the time was well spent with my daughter.  

Here are some pics of the swap I was in:  I made a tag and a stuffed butterfly pin holder for the stickpins.  I do not sew well, but I like to try.
I received this amazing box from my partner ABrennick: 
I told her I like Dragonflies and she made this!  Isn't it stunning!  I love the use of paper and the colors the style fits my house so well.
