Tuesday, June 29th

Someday I will figure out how to post correctly on this blog. Here are a few cards I made for challenges over at Simply Scrapping Crafts. My blog posting is below. I have no idea what I am doing wrong.....

I can not believe how fast the month of June flew by. It seems just as I am ready to enjoy summer, it is half over. The next few days will be very busy for me. We are trying to get away for the weekend, but have to be home very late Saturday night. My sister-n-law is turning 50, and my husband's family is having a surprise b-day party for her on the 4th of July.
Thanks for stopping by.

I'm sorry Dear Blog

I can not believe it has been almost 2 months since I have posted anything in my blog. I feel so bad. I have been very busy with lots of things. It seems once summer rolls around a lot of what I have been doing gets put on the back burner. I'll get back to those things once Fall comes. I have been doing a lot over at Simply Scrapping Crafts. The challenges are great and the ladies over there are wonderful!
The latest challenge I completed was for Wacky Wednesday. Transform a tin into some sort of summer kit. I didn't have a tin, but used a cigar box instead. I have a huge supply of cigar boxes. I seem to have an addiction to them. I do find uses for them eventually. I transformed a plain wooden cigar box into a travel kit for my son to use in the car. He loves it. I hope you guys do too.
This is the back of it. My pictures didn't post how I wanted them. Anyway, I laminated the tic tac toe board. I also laminated the bingo cards and hangman cards. A dry erase marker will work well, and easily wiped clean to use over and over again.
The Front:

The inside. I love the pic on the inside. The building on the right is the Klafter Cigar Company, which is the brand of cigars that were inside.

All of the goodies:

Bitten By the Bug 2 is having a cool challenge this week. Use the "Genie Lamp" from Paper Doll Dress Up. That is one of my favorite cartridges, and sadly I had no idea that this on it. Look through those booklets carefully, you never know what little extra surprises you may find! I hope I find a little bit of time to create something this week. I need to make a 50th b-day card for my sister-n-law and have a good idea on what I want to do. It would be great if I could incorporate the card to fit more than one challenge.
Thanks for stopping by. That is if I am still having any one follow me. I'm horrible at updating!
Have a great night!
