It was such a gorgeous day today. Just the energy boost I needed to tidy up some of my crafting things. During the process I found a box of tins I had forgotten I'd been saving for that *you never know what you might need it for * project. I set them aside and finished my tidying. It didn't take me long and I figured I'd try and think of something for those tins. I finally came up with this idea. I'm always looking for a tissue to wipe something off or to wipe my aqua painter on while crafting. So what better than a cute little tin to sit on my desk and hold a roll of tissue. This really was very simple and lots of fun. Besides whats better than recycling something old and turning it into something functional and pretty at the same time.

Project Recipe
1 empty tin with plastic lid (big enough to hold a TP roll) TP roll with the inner cardboard removed.
Paper: Summer Garden Simply scrapin kit ( If you are a SU demo you can still purchase it under the bulk buying program), Certainly celery, So saffron, Baja blue ( Bashful blue would work just as well).
Accessories: Scalloped circle punch, 1" circle punch, Circle scissor plus, So saffron grosgrain ribbon, Beautiful wings embosslit die, Glue dots.

My very first blog...

Well here it goes. This blog business is all new to me so please bare with me as I figure things out.

Today has been a fairly quiet day and I wanted to make a card but wasn't sure just where to begin. Sooo I thought I'd just make up my own challenge today. I decided I would just close my eyes, pull out a sheet of DSP and then while my eyes were still closed I would choose a stamp set. What ever the luck of the draw was I would have to just go with it.
To my surprise I had pulled out a sheet of Candy Lane DSP(retired) and the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set and these are what I came up with. Enjoy.
