2. Teach paper craft classes.
3. Create Dies for Spellbinders(done)

Dream while you Read!

Welcome to my spot this chilly blistery day in September!  My boy started High School yesterday and he survived!  The best thing is he gets 70 minutes of study hall as a class!  So, "maybe" less homework!  I can only hope!  Well enough about me, on to the real goodies.

There is a challenge starting today at the Divas by Design Challenge Blog!  We want you to create a project of your choice with the

"Back to School"  theme

We are sponsored by CraftySentiment 

If you ask me, she's looking out to find her way around the world and her first prospective location is PARis!  But first, she's going to read up on it and maybe learn some French in school with the bookie mark! hehe!

So, the funnest part of this card is the stretch choker with the magnetic bottle cap!  Yep, you heard me, interchangeable bottle cap that magnetically attaches to the choker whenever you want to change it up!  It was actually a request by a craft sale patron and I couldn't wait to get them started, should be a huge success at the school cafeteria on September 17th.


This has been a great week so far, so thanks for joining me, don't forget to hop over to Divas by Design for both the new challenge and inspiration from a very talented DT! You have a whole week to enter so join us for the fun!  On to my little creation:

  9. great book mark! LOL - your son starts high school and my oldest grandson is a Marine. Also I have a teeny bopper granddaughter that wore these necklaces last year - I forget the teenage specialty story I bought it out - but they were all the rage for these 5th graders. You know I enjoy visiting with you Tammy!
