Garage Sale Find

Hi Everyone, I went to a garage sale and I found a couple of craft items but the best thing I came home with was  free.
This is Sophie. And she is as sweet as can be. Lucy is even starting to think so after two day.
Here is  a video.

Raisin Boat Challenge #5 Treats

It's time for another fun challenge here at the Raisin Boat Blog! This month, we want you to show us how you dress up a treat.  It can be a box, tins, bottles, or just cover a candy wrapper.

Raisin Boat offers a great selection of fun alterable products, if you're looking for something to "dress up" with your stamps. Check them out here! They make perfect goodies for Halloween and Christmas, which will be here before you know it!

I used a Raisin Boat Clear Pillow Box Small. I stamped the eyeball from the Halloween All Around set on Brighton Beach White cardstock and wrapped it around Smarties Candy and put them in the pillow box. Then I used Sealed with a Kiss to stamp the jar and the set Do Not Enter to create the spooky treat box.
The ribbon is Raisin Boat Gingham 1/4" Black/White and Rafia Natural Mix. I love working with the raffia, it is great stuff.

This month... you can use any stamp set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps). That's right, use any stamp set you wish for this treat challenge, but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a stamp set of your choice!

Something NEW this month... To get three chances to win a free Raisin Boat stamp set, invite a friend to play along with our challenge. If you get a friend to enter the challenge and he or she mentions your name, you will get your name entered three times and triple your chance to win a free set!

So, in summary:

1. Your name is entered once for joining the challenge. 
2. Your name is entered twice if you use Raisin Boat stamps. AND
3. Your name is entered three times if you do 1 and 2 and get a friend to join the challenge.

I hope you will join the challenge this month at the Raisin Boat Blog. You could win a stamp set of your choice. The hard part will be picking out the set when you win.

Here is how I made my treat box.

If you need more inspiration be sure to check out the rest of the design teams creations.

LESSology Challenge #19

Hi Everyone the challenge this month at LESSology is called Mirror, mirror on the wall. I thought and though what can I do. Well I was at a hotel and was in need of a magnifying mirror.  I am getting old and can not get my eye make up on with out one. LOL There wasn't any around. When I got hope I remembered I had my four Mary Kay mirrors from when I sold MK. I got one out and thought here is my project. I took the mirror that looked like this.
Then I up-cycled it to look like this.
With a little Graphic 45 paper, an old linen napkin, some bling and glue I now have a very pretty mirror to hang in my bathroom and to take when I go on a trip.

Here is the video of how I made the transformation.

And the Prize Is....
Our sponsor for this challenge is Spellbinders. 

The winner of this challenge will win a Spellbinders Nestabilities set and pouch. Design team member Julie Tucker-Wolek has also added in an Artbin Magnetic Die Storage Case for the winner. Awesome prize, don't you think?

Now head over to LESSology and see what the rest of the team has created. You have until November 4, 11:59pm EST to join the challenge
 I can't wait to see what you create!
