In a "Blue" Mood - 2 Sketches 4 You (week of December 22, 2008) and a picture frame!


At our local scrapbook store, Scrapbook Fever, they have make and takes every monday. A couple weeks ago, they had a cool little frame that we made using chipboard. I have a bunch of frame dies for sizzix so I made this one using the rectangle frame (cut once out of chipboard ~ I recycle cereal boxes and other boxes for my chipboard!) and once out of BoBunny polka dot paper. Then I used the Jelly frame to cute the other frame out of Me and My Big Ideas paper. The flowers are prima lace flowers. I cut Carl, Shaina, 2008 with the cricut DonJuan font. The brad is Darice. I made 16 of these and included one in my Christmas Cards for close family and friends - my parents, sisters, my aunts and uncles (that don't get to see us much).













































I thought about Laura's Sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You alot while I was driving up and down the freeway in the snow and ice (see below)! After making all those little picture frames I found myself going for the white, black, and blue combo (that is why I say a Blue Mood!) because it is so striking. I made a get well card a few weeks ago that had the same colors and loved it also! The card uses the same BoBunny Paper (lots of scraps from the frames), DCWV (the black and white striped), and another black and white scrap. the happy birthday is Quickutz Revolution. The blue and white flower is a doodlebug, and the black flower is another prima lace flower (I've used them all up now!), and the brad a Darice. This was really a fun card!












It has been an interesting week here. The week started out with snow and it is still working on more ~ it has melted off a couple times and then came back! Very odd for Western Oregon! No school all week! The kids were getting stir crazy! It took a long time to get to work most days and then when it did thaw out, the lines in the stores were incredibly long because everyone took the window of opportunity to do shopping and stock up on groceries. I also had an incredibly strange car problem ~ I rolled down my passenger side window to get some snow off and the window would not go back up! Driving on the freeway with snow blowing in was not very fun. I took it into the shop and the motor in the window was shot! $429 later I'm staying dry and warm in my car and got it done before the next wave of winter weather! The weather man says more is on it's way tonight and tomorrow!
