Recycle for fun!

Hi girlfriends! How are you? Seems like forever since I posted! I can't believe the month is almost over (tonight in fact) and I haven't blogged that much! What can I say the girls are back in school and things have been busy around here. I have managed to get a little crafting time in which makes me so happy!! I have had these little tea tins for a long time with this idea in my head but haven't had the time to make them. One night I sat down and decided...it's time! So here is what I came up with. I thought these would be so much fun to give as a little birthday gift with a little "starter money" inside. All of the girls are bellas with the exception of the little chick with the glasses, I purchased her through All that Scraps web store. Speaking of web store did you see my new blinkie for Ellen Hutson? You gotta check those gals out! I have been trying to build up my Copic Marker collection and they have them for $4.99, which is a really great deal!

Well the first football game is Friday night but the first home game isn't until later in September, we only have 4 home games and most of them are all in a row so we will be pretty busy on Friday evenings. Sidney decided to play softball for the 7th/8th grade team so I am sure that will take up some of our evenings pretty soon too! Life is good!

Thanks for peekin' in friend! Hope all is well with you!

Does anyone like left overs? What about left overs in your scrapbook room? So you buy this really great sticker sheet for a project and use the ones you want and then there are all these cute little stickers left over and you think to yourself, I could use those for something else so you stick them in a box or a drawer and eventually forget all about them. Does this happen to anyone else or is it just me? Not just me? Ahhh that is good news to me! Well this past week I decided to clean my drawers out and use those left over stickers for cards. So here is what I came up with.

Remember these cute little stickers from Doodle Bug?

This is what I did with my leftovers...

just added a bit of bling bling...

These stickers were the coordinating stickers that matched the stickers above.  I thought the packages would make nice birthday cards.

I found these fun rainbow heart stickers and thought I would make really simple cards with them.  What do you think?  Seriously these went together in 5 minutes but aren't they fun?

These stickers were from the same set but I added a few buttons and twine.  These cards just made me happy...so I am sure whoever gets them will smile too ehh?
Well thanks for peekin in friend.  Sadly summer is coming to an end and the kids will be back in school soon.  This was a good summer.  The kids had so much going on...now it's back to homework and such.  I am looking forward to highschool football though.  This year Haley will be on the field at half time with the Color Gard team.  Yey!  Can't wait to share some footage with you then.  Take care of you!
