Something Fishy!

Today is my turn again posting a project for the Momenta blog.  I decided to alter another bit of toy packaging, this time a wooden box from a package of Melissa and Doug dinosaur magnets. We love Melissa and Doug toys, but the fact that the boxes don't have lids, makes no sense to me, and it seems like such a waste to throw them out.

Now Parker has an aquarium for his room, and there's no water to worry about !

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists
One Fine Day  5"x7" Cardstock Pad (PA-2337).
One Fine Day Puffy Flourishes ( ST-4147)
Beach Fun Layered Puffy Stickers ( ST-2114).
Pure Bubbles and Bling Stickers ( ST-1740)
Buttons- lots of em!
acrylic sheet
Diamond Glaze, Glue Dots, StixII foam squares

In case you missed it, the last packaging I altered was this:

It's beginning to look a lot like...

...time to start the Christmas crafts! I would usually wait until at least the 1st of December to break out anything Christmas related ( maybe that's why I'm always so rushed by the 25th!).  We are starting our Christmas Holiday Schedule over at Practical Scrappers, and today we're all about Christmas cards.
Here's my contribution, made with an absolutely adorable Digital Stamp from La La Land Crafts. I did a combination of Copic coloring, and paper piecing using The Great Outdoors Collection from Momenta.

I added a bit of Tim Holtz Distress Ink in the new Seasonal colours of Evergreen Bough, and Iced Spruce (YUM), a sentiment stamp from Studio G, chipboard snowflakes from American Crafts, mini pompoms from the Dollarama, all on a 6 x 6 card base made from Bazzill cardstock.

A bit of everything and anything

I'm not scrapping much these days, and I miss it horribly. Things are just a bit too hectic around here for me to get much time alone in my scraproom. I think it all started about 3 weeks ago when the flu bug hit our house. The last victims are slowly on the mend and back to school this week. In addition to the sick household, I received some bad news last week about my 6 1/2 year old cat Edgar.  I took him in for a routine check-up, and his vaccines which were long overdue, in preparation for the arrival of our new puppy next week-end. The vet checked him over and asked me if we could hold off on the shots, and do some blood tests instead. Long story short, Edgar has cysts all over his kidneys, and is having chronic renal failure. He's now on medications, and a special diet to help, but the prognosis isn't good. I'll hopefully know more after our next vet visit on Wednesday, when we get a look at his kidneys to see how bad the situation is. Poor kitty, here I was thinking that the drive to the vet's office was the most stress he was going to have before the puppy arrives, and now we don't even know how long he's going to be with us.

On a brighter note, I have a new page done for My Momenta featuring some of their fun puffy stickers. Who can't use a bit of glittery puffiness to brighten their day?

Oh and here's one I forgot to share. It was posted on Halloween for Momenta as well. Have I ever mentioned how much I love googley eyes?

And now that My friend Claude has posted her layout from our First annual Mad Hatter Day Crop, I think it's safe to go ahead and post mine. I invited the girls over for a special crop on 10/6 (also the hat size tucked into on the Mad Hatter's  hat band). We had tea instead of our usual Lattes, cupcakes, a few nonsensical rules, and a surprise paper swap where we each had to bring 3 pieces of patterned paper that somehow matched what we were wearing. We each ended up with one of each others papers, and had to make a layout with photos we took and a few extra goodies.

All I can say is thank goodness for double sided papers, and for understanding friends who willingly put up with my hairbrained schemes, even when it means cutting into papers they were intending for another purpose.

Happy Monday everyone!
