My doggy donation 8x8 mini album

These are just a sampling of the "just add photos" mini album I am donating to the Paws for the Cause crop. This is obviously the doggy themed album and the kitty one is about 3/4 done. Between the mini's I have done for the Florida Boxer Rescue and now this one, can you tell I am an animal lover. Both of my grand puppies are rescue was/is a Katrina rescue baby (who now weighs over 90lbs)and I am a firm believer is pet rescue. Check out the crop!

A Cherry on Top Reveal: Altered drawer organizer


I found this drawer organizer at a home goods store a while back thinking it would be a good way to keep my ink pads grouped in their drawer. Alas! It didn't fit so I turned it into something else...a shadow box for my small but every growing collection of tiny and not so tiny bottles.

I used the Shimmerz paint in pink to covert the beige fabric on the outsides of the organizer into a soft glowing color, lined the backs of the shelves with lawyers of Tim Holtz' papers from his Vintage Shabby Paper Stack, added brads from KI and lace by Melissa Francis. All of these can be purchased at A Cherry on Top. The French hand dyed ribbon around the larger bottle came from Rainbow's End, in Dunedin, Florida.

Thank you for looking.

A Cherry on Top May altered object challenge

The Creative Team at ACOT host a challenge each at the beginning of each month. I have the altered object challenge with objects from around the house. This month my object is aluminum foil. The challenge is to create an embellishment or something to be used on a card or layout out of household aluminum foil.

I used a frame from the Dollar Store, aluminum foil, alcohol inks and a brayer to create this. Come join in the challenge!
