Girls Just Wanna Have Fun...At Your Paper Pantry!!

Hi Friends...

So I haven't made you wait as long as usual for another post...Yeah Bon!! I wanted to take a minute to share a wonderful website with you. As some of you know before I go to sleep each night I spend a little time...okay a lot of time on my iPad watching YouTube videos of all of the treasures that are being created by so many wonderfully talented ladies. One night while watching one of my favorite channels..."Enastasia" Natasha Hensel's channel, she mentioned this fantastic place where she hosts swaps and because I wanted to try a particular swap (inchies), I wondered over to the site "Your Paper Pantry" just to take a peek...well what do you know...I LOVED IT IMMEDIATELY!!

Here is the link just in case you want to take a peek 
I couldn't wait to get involved. It took me a bit to get familiar with where things were and how things worked, in fact, I'm still learning. But, once I found what I was looking for, I couldn't have been happier. So I wanted to share my happiness with all of you. Now first you must know, it isn't a free! There is a $12 a year membership. But hey, what's a $1 a month right?? Then I wanted to let you know that they have the FUNNEST swaps! I have already participated in 4 just this month. And lastly I wanted to let you know that you can still get into the swaps for November because the swaps open for sign ups on the 25th of each month and don't close until the 5th of the following month, which means you can still sign up until November 5th...YIPPEE!!!

Now to the fun part...I wanted to share my creations with each of you! 

Bookworm "Got Books" Bookmark
"Sew Me Some Love" Inchies

"Boo" ATC Cards

And last but certainly not least my Artsy Fartsy "Thankful/Thank You Tickets"

Now that you have seen my creations I will share with you that this is the first time I had ever made inchies, ATC's or Tickets. What do y'all think???

Now that I have shared a great website with you...why don't you share one of your favorite websites with me??

I'll be waiting to hear from you...

Until then...

Be Blessed.

It's Time For A "Super SpookTacular Halloween" Blog Hop...Come Join The "Pride"!!

Howdy My Sweet Friends!! 
Once again life has gotten in the way of blogging...but that's a post for another day!
Right now I would like to invite you to join us as we celebrate the most "SpookTacular" of all holidays...Halloween!!
I want to welcome you to our SpookTacular Halloween Hop!! The "Pride" has been crazy busy creating little bits of inspiration for all of you. Some of us even took Elsa up on the "Slider Card" Challenge...I think that as you all have gotten to know me better y'all know how super excited I was to step outside my comfort zone and create something new...and I think y'all are going to love the card that I created!! What's most AWESOME about my enthusiasm is that Elsa and two of the alpha's in the den will be choosing one lucky cub's project as the "Best In Show" and the lucky winner will be receiving some AMAZING goodies!! As you all know I am pretty competitive and I would love to be the winner of the "Best In Show" but I need your help to do that!!  So please pounce on over to Elsa's den at and tell her which you liked the best...Maybe if you all go tell her that I am your favorite it will convince her to pick me! I hope you choose ME! :D But even if you love someone else's creation better, I hope that at the very least the "Pride" and I have inspired you to create and have fun with  spooky paper and embellies.
So without further ado...I would love to show you my "Super SpookTacular Halloween" Double Slider Card...
The front of the card...
The card as I begin to slide it...
and the card slid open...
Here you can find a YouTube video I made! In the video it might be easier to see all the detail and such. Sometimes pictures just don't really capture a creation as well. I hope you enjoy the video!
And because once I get going I can't seem to stop...I have some other AWESOME Halloween goodies that I have created to inspire you!
First I would like to show you these adorable little "Halloween Gang" Treat Boxes that I made especially for my Grandson's Kindergarten class! I wanted him to have an extra special memory of his very first Halloween, and I hope he has just that.
Aren't they just the cutest????
I also created some of the cutest little altered matchbook candy holders...just perfect for a fun sized pack of your favorite candy...
Here is a little close up of one...
Aren't they just too adorable?? They were so simple to create...and all made from scraps!! That's inspiration enough wouldn't you say???
And lastly, I would like to share with you a picture of the very first ATC card that I have ever created...I hope you like it? I will be making more for a swap that I am in later in the month...just thought I'd share with y'all here first. :)
Halloween "Boo" ATC Card...
Now I would love it if you would take a minute and pounce on over to my brother cub RJ's den and see what he has created...You can find him at!!
Here is the line up of all the members of the "Pride" so that you don't miss a thing that we have created for y'all.
Before I go...I want to take a minute to thank you for stoppin' by my blog and supporting me! You have no idea what it means to me to have such amazing followers. If you are new...please consider subscribing...It's because of all of you that I continue to create!! If I don't post before Halloween I want to wish each of you a safe and happy Halloween.
Until next time...
Be blessed.
