Get Ready...I'm About To "Strut My Style" For All Of You!

Howdy Friends...
It has been awhile since I have been around hasn't it?!? So much going on in my life! But, Now that the leaves are changing color (where you all live at least), and the days are getting shorter, I hope to be spending a lot more time in my little den of scrappiness.

Today I want to welcome you to our Just A Few Friendz "Strut your Style" Blog Hop!! 
Please excuse how messy my den looks, but I have been so busy creating in order to maybe inspire y'all to create, and to encourage y'all to stop hoarding all of those AWESOME supplies you have been buying! Yup, that's right...While I have been under the weather I've been watching all those haul videos that y'all have been putting on YouTube. Fussy cut that paper, use that new card stock, get all those pretty embellies out and make a few projects with "Just A Few Friendz" that make you smile and feel all warm and fuzzie on the inside! 

And because I practice what I about I take a minute to "Strut my Style"?!? 
Here are a few projects that I have created to "Strut my Style". I'm not certain that I have a style though, as I am pretty diverse in the projects I create depending on who I am creating them for.
Let me begin by showing you a wonderful card that I created especially for my Grandson's teacher...He started Kindergarten this year and I made her all kinds of cute goodies to use in her class and then I included this card with the goodie bag...I hope you like it...

Here is the inside of the card...
She was so pleased with all of the handmade goodies and especially this card.

After which I created these adorable "Butterfly Garden" Matchbook Post-It-Note Holders... 

Then I made these AWESOME little Altered Mini Notebooks...

ADORABLE aren't they??

And because I didn't want my "Friendz" at the "Pride" to think I couldn't do Vintage or Shabby Chic I created this Bookmark and Large Tag using Graphic 45's "A Ladies Diary" paper collection.

I hope I have made my Friendz ROARRRRRRR with PRIDE.

...and just because I NEVER leave the "crafty dudes" like my cub brother RJ out, I have made a little something just for them...

RJ...How'd you like it?!?

Oh...and one more thing...this month the "Pride" had an altered photo frame swap...I was partnered with Sherain she is totally into the "Parisian" look and she loves "Shabby Chic". Sherain...this one's for you my sweet sister. I hope you like it.

So now you know the true reason I have been away...well, besides being under the weather for a bit!! Now please take a minute and pounce on over to RJ's blog at and take a look at what he's been up to!

Here is a line up for the rest of the PRIDE so that you don't miss a thing we have all created.

As always, I want to thank you for stopping in and with visiting me...Y'all are the reason I create! Why don't you grab a cup of Joe and a warm bagel and visit the rest of the "Pride" on this wonderful "Strut your Style" Blog Hop weekend. Everyone would so appreciate your lovin' comments.
Until next time...May your days be filled with blessings....and beautiful paper treasures!
