Look What I've Made!

If you haven't downloaded the 3 FREE MDS downloads yet, what are you waiting for?  They are great! 
I had fun with them today.  

This first project is for an Advent Calendar I am going to make.  Sonny and I went to the Y and to lunch today and afterwards, he needed to go to Lowe's.  Well .... a new Hobby Lobby just opened right next door to Lowe's so he dropped me off there.  All their Christmas craft items were on sale for 50% off.  I found this cute Advent Calendar that I bought for about $5.  And that was before I saw the free download!  So I made little 2" squares with the "Day In December download and decorated each square.  The squares and the numbers are all from the free download.  Some of the elements used to decorate the squares are from it also; others are from various Christmas downloads that I have.  All I will have to do is just print these out onto card stock and cut out each square and adhere to the front of the little box!!  I'll share the finished product when I am done.

This next picture is a page I created using the free Enjoying Everything download featuring sweet little Jack IV, my great nephew.  I did a little recoloring, added the polka dot overlay and voila, a darling scrapbook page!

 Next we have 2 pages I created with the final free download, A Split Second.  I used the pictures I took on our recent trip to the mountains for this two page spread.

Muffin, Muffin, Who's got the Muffin?

I made a couple of Advent Calendars from Mini Muffin Tins!  What fun they were.  I originally had just made one but the gal who bought it wanted another one for her other grandchild.  So I improved on the original!

I got the tins at Walmart.  The red and green paper is cut to 1 1/4" square.  Layer on those squares, the large scallop circles.  Then punch designer paper in 1 3/4" circles and layer them onto the scallops.  Then I just typed 1-24 on my word processing program in a font I liked, printed them out onto white cardstock, and punched them out with the 3/4" punch.  On the back of the red and green squares, I glued think magnets.  The magnets were a real find!  A few years ago, Ashley was cleaning out her desk and had about 100 of these refrigerator magnets she'd gotten from a drug rep or something.  Anyway, I don't like to throw anything away so I took them.  It's amazing how often I've used those little magnets.  They have been a real find!

I played bridge today .... and actually had the top score which was surprising because my hands pretty much sucked!  But that just goes to show how bad everyone's hands were.  I won't be able to play Mahjongg on Friday due to going to Pittsburgh which made several of the gals happy since I have been winning big time the past month and taking their money!  (We only play for $2!)
