Fancy Folds

Hi Ladies!
Who likes to fold? not your laundry.....  Are you into origami, or creating 3D items with paper?  Then the ladies at Our Creative Corner want to see your creations!  The ultra talented Tui is our hostess this week and she is putting us to the test.  Here is my creation for this challenge.  Tf you've checked out my tutorial, then you have seen the step-by-step for a basket like this.  After much nagging, I had to make one just like Lily's for my youngest daughter that turned 3 this month....she had to have one like her big sister.... I thought this was the perfect chance to get it done.

This basket is put together by folding 4 little boxes and putting them together.  It's easy, but time consuming and totally worth the effort!  She's been hopping around with it 'like a bunny' all day....she's so darn cute....

We are having a Halloween birthday party for her today so I'll share the photos with you later this week.  As always I've gone overboard, but hey, it's my sweet little bebe, so I couldn't resist!

Sweet baby face

Hola chickas!....the girls have been watching Dora all day....  Hows your face?  Mine's looking a little more wrinkled than it used to.  I still think I look like I did when I was in high school, but who am I kiddin'?....except for myself.....  Since my face isn't up to par, I thought I'd use a different one for this week's Our Creative Corner Fabulous Face challenge hosted again by Marjie, our super artsy DT member....check out her stuff, you'll know I ain't fibbin....

This is a sweet little frame I made for a friend of mine that had a baby girl.  It had to have some bling and since I'm not much of a scrapbooker, I did this.  Is that not the most adorable child you've ever seen?  Look at those cheeks!  I don't think she's real, it's a vintage drawing, *hello* but adorable!!!  I just want to nibble on them.  Ok enough of that, no go and make a creation using some fabulous faces in your life!

My new mantra....

This is it!  The new reason I'm giving my hubby when he asks "Why do you do this again?"

Transparency Theory

Hello Ladies!  It's that time again, Our Creative Corner Challenge time!  This week our hostess is fabulous Marjie Kemper and she is challenging us to use transparencies in your creations this week.  I had a hard time getting back into the craftin' groove this week, recovering from the vaca, Rug Doctoring my area rugs on the first floor....I'll give you a hint why, it rhymes with 'bat' and may be sleeping with the fishes when I'm done with him....  But now that it's all done, I'm 1 rug short....uugghhh....and have thoroughly enjoyed spending a few hours in the craftin' spot....*aaahhhhh*......

You all know I love using window sheets for card bases, but decided to spice it up a bit for this one.  I was really able to sit down and enjoy the crafting process this time and brought back my 'shabby' side.  The transparency is from Hambly Studios, its the dress maker forms.  I placed that over a stitched sheet I made with scraps.  I'm LOVIN' how this came out and that life is slowin' down, if only for a few weeks!

Now be sure you head over to the OCC and check out all that the DT has made this week, I've been swooning over each and every one!

Goodbye sweet World....

I'm leaving Disney as you read this....*tear*....  It was so nice to get away with just my hubby for some fun and relaxation.  Back to reality....

I prepared this card before I left for my break from life for this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner.  It's a color challenge and it has some really great colors!
Our hostess Lori really came up a fun fall combo.  I made this card for my in-laws, they took care of the kids for us while we were away.  What a blessing!
Be sure to head over the Our Creative Corner for some great inspiration from our DT!

Apparently you can't check you posts with your cell, otherwise they publish.  So my prescheduled OCC post for Sat. posted today!  I don't know how to take it off with my phone, so I apologize that its early.  I'm still here at Disney and will be back to my post here on the 9th.  Sorry for the mixup!

Say Wi, Merci!

Greeting from EPCOT's Food and Wine Festival!    In honor of World Card Making Day, the challenge this week at Our Creative Corner is to create a card inspired by another country!  I chose France...since I have the fabu 'Merci' stamp from PTI....  It's kind of appropriate that I'm here in EPCOT for this challenge, I'm strolling along, sampling the tasty treats from over 20 countries!...YUMMM....  I think I've gained 5 pounds, and I've only been here 3.5 days!

I made this card before I left this week, and while it's inspired by France, it's not at all Belle Epoche.  Another CAS creation made in my limited time.  I pulled out my old stand by, window sheets to create the card.  I think it's kind of fun!  Now be sure to visit the other ladies on the DT for some inspiration!
