Lot’s to share this week! I’m so excited and want to share that I’m on the My Sketch World Design Team for another term. I’m honored to be working with so many talented ladies. At My Sketch World Lucy has challenged everyone to participate in Project 12. The idea behind Project 12 is this: whether you take one photo, 100 photos, or no photos each month, you still have a life to document. Life happens and sometimes … we’ll you get busy! All those photo’s you want to scrap and all those memories you want to document. How do you keep up and not feel overwhelmed? Project 12! One layout a month. Check out Lucy’s post at My Sketch World here for more details and a chance to win a 12 X 12 album. You can check out Davinie Fiero’s Blog (the master mind behind Project 12) here. I’m busy (aren’t we all) but I think this is something I can do. Instead of using an album for my project I’ve decided to use a 7 Gypsies Carousel. This weeks challenge (#156) on the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog was winter. Since I was working on my January documentation for Project 12 I decided to incorporate the winter theme into my cover page.
Be sure to link your card, layout or other “winter” project to the inlinkz tool on the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge Blog.To be eligible for the prize draw you need to be linked by Sunday, February3rd.
One random drawn prize winner will receive 8 images from Whoopsi Daisy.
I had so many ideas for using ribbon it was hard to just pick one project.
There was a lamp in the living room that was screaming I’m to plain! So I gave the shade an easy update by wrapping ribbon vertically around the shade and knotting it at the bottom. What were the chances of finding the same color of ribbon as the stripes on the walls?!
I also made a few bookmarks. For some of them I just wove one end of a 12” length of ribbon through a ribbon charm. I then pulled about an 1 ½” of the ribbon back under and secured it with a brad.
For the other bookmarks I used ribbon clamps. They are the same width as the ribbon. I used a pair of flat nose jewelry pliers to affix the claps to both ends of the ribbon. I finished them off by adding a charm. I’m thinking these will make cute teacher gifts.

I did this layout using a photo of 2 of our grandsons (Samuel and Elisha) from our visit to FL in October. Samuel with his thumb and Elisha with his animated expression … priceless! To meet the challenge criteria I used buttons on the banner.

A few years ago the agency that I work for had new windows put in our school building. I’m the one who had to deal with the contractor on a daily basis, setting up dates and times when he could get his crew in to complete the job. One day (and I have no idea how this conversation started) we started talking old windows. I told the guy I would love to have some old windows to alter (and he had no idea what that was, so I had to explain lol!). To my surprise a few days later he brought me 4 old windows that they had taken out of a house and he thought I could use them for my altering projects. The windows have sat in the corner of the garage all this time. Randy has threatened to throw them out on several occasions but I kept telling him that I wanted them for some special projects.
When I saw that the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge for this week was “Vintage” I knew it was time to alter one of those windows. Randy was a big help with this project and painted the window black and added the hardware needed for hanging it. I made the banner, distressed the edges, inked it and added the vintage photos. I think it’s the perfect accent for our little vintage corner in the living room.
