monday...Ew to New #12

i returned from my scrappin' weekend yesterday afternoon. aimee was not able to go at the last minute, but jana was there and so was her sister dana whom i had not seen in about a year or so. but, they had things going on with the family (a new baby for their brother) and had to leave early. ooh, and she is a cutie!

still, eva and i had a ball! she had another friend over on saturday night (trudy) and they really beat me out by staying up until past 3am! it was trudi's first time scrapbooking...she's completely hooked and left with a list of necessities. i hit the hay about midnight or so on sat. and...i know i said, "straight scrapbooking." well, that didn't happen. only 7 layouts. but i did 3 ew to new projects. before i share one of them, here are a few pics from the weekend. i only took two. we were just too busy!


Eva has a ton of buttons!!! look at them all! she was so very nice to let me dig through and pick out ones i wanted. i didn't have the heart to tell her that i just wanted to shut the container and hide the whole thing in my cropping bag. so i limited myself to about 10 or so. :)




EW to NEW #12...

super countrified frame-$1.00 at Goodwill (during 1/2 price day). I commented during the crop this weekend that i'm so damn cheap i only shop at Goodwill on 1/2 price days. eva's friend suggested that isn't cheap, it's smart. and i think i agree...why pay full price for junk? but she is still too kind. :)

a little paint, sandpaper, and lots of pp strips (inspired by April Foster)...and some items from SC kits...not sure which kits though.

and ta-na (as mich used to say):



have a good monday! crap! it's already 12:32pm!

Love how this turned out, neat idea!
I'm a little cheap too. My dh made me get new shoes after I duck-taped the old pair (the soles only had worn out, the rest of the shoe was ok). I'm trying not to let it get to that point anymore. :)

Do you even know how many countrified framed art pieces I sold at a garage sale a year ago? Makes me sick that I have to go purchase one at Goodwill to copy you, because I love what you designed. I will probably be rebuying one of my old ones back. LOL! :o) TFS!

WOW - you are completely amazing! That sooooooo rocks!

mommy2alex said...

I so love your ew to new items!
This one is great and I too shop at Goodwill on the 1/2 off days!

Greta said...

Seriously wayyyy cool! I think I say that about all your ew to new projects. But it's true - it is fantastic! Shopping on 1/2 price day makes complete sense to me, absolutely nothing wrong with that.

A woman after my own heart! I love altering stuff and will only buy the cheapest stuff available to do it with...Want some buttons? I have a couple hundred I could spare...Gina
