Which I have to also say, thank heavens Michael Bolton was voted off DWTS last night. It was just painful watching him dance and take criticism.

I got a plain wooden frame at my LSS and painted it with pink, white, and raspberry. I wrote Claudia's name with a pencil first, then painted it black. The finishing touch was one of my cute felt owls (available HERE in my Etsy shop). The photo opening is for a 3.5x5 picture.
This is the picture I used in the frame. My brother, Nate and his beautiful family:
Here's Claudia in her baptismal gown. My mom made it and all the grandchildren have worn it.

One of the items I make at sell at my craft shows are these cute little sketch books. I cover chipboard, punch a hole in all the paper and attach a binder ring to hold them all together. I add ribbons for added cuteness!And for tomorrow, a post on something super cute I made with one of my Etsy felt owls! You will love it! Happy Crafting!

The next star I have to earn is in tennis... had my first lesson yesterday, it's been about 15 years since I had played. It was so much fun and an awesome workout! I'm not gunna lie, either... I can barely move today! Tennis is like riding a bike... you never forget how to do it!

The card... another Halloween one. The yellow ruffle is crepe paper and the rest is all scraps leftover from scrappin'. Notice the 31 on the yellow crossword puzzle paper? :)

I used the Get Sketchy card sketch for the week which is this:
And the end result: Sorry the picture is so bad. It was dark in my studio when I took the pic and using my Adobe tools just made it look worse! You get the jist! Have a great day... we are expecting a cold front! Yipee!
