My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers. Currently at about 45%)
2. Teach paper craft classes.
3. Create Dies for Spellbinders(done)
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Free to be married 25 years!

Happy "belated" Independence Day to all my friends and family!   Both of my karate guys were in the parade yesterday and as I was watching the four year old twins today, I was unable to join them.  However, as you know, it's not so interesting if you aren't participating!    Today is a little shorter post but I do want to share something near and dear to my heart at the end of the post . . . so please keep reading!


Today at Top Tip Tuesday we have a "Wedding/Anniversary" challenge that starts today that will be sponsored by both:

Also, there is a tutorial on a fabulous "easy" exploding box from Leanne at the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge.  Just wait till you see this gorgeous work!

On to the details of my newest piece of greeting art.  I made this with specific desires of a patron that has to give a gift for a 25th Wedding Anniversary and as this is the Silver one, here you go:

 INGREDIENTS: 
Paper mache frame
DP from stash
The Crafty Pad Sentiment digi stamp "with Love tag"
Bazzill card stock black behind tag


 MEDIUMS: 
Only printer ink


 EMBELLISHMENTS:
Pearled Ribbon from Offray 
Recollections Pearl stickers
Stickles "Silver Glitter"
Celebrate it Holiday Ribbon
Satin Ribbon by Offray
Floral pearls from stash
Charm from stash
Please don't forget to stop by for both inspiration and a challenge, I would love you to visit and enter your projects! 

 INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: 
I've been blessed with a lovely daughter that dated a courageous young man named Chris Oaks in High School.  

Since graduating in 2009, Chris joined our armed forces in Afghanistan, and returned to us 2 days ago, in what looks to be a permanently paralyzed condition at the age of 20!  

The "return home" event was covered by Channel 7 Action news, and the address location for donations to support the modifications to his families home and the video can be found HERE.  

I know that this news is not new as it happens all too often, however, never so close to me.  As much as we would appreciate any and all donations, I mainly wanted to show my support and gratitude to such a wonderful and truly beautiful young man that I am blessed to know personally.  These are the men that keep us safe and free!  

Thank you Chris and Welcome Home!

Thank you for visiting,
