October Afternoon Back To School Mini Kit!!

This fun kit was inspired by this beautiful paper collection from October After noon. This kit is a bit vintage and shabby at the same time. I've loaded it up with tons of goodies, LETS HAVE FUN!!!
Every kit is a little different and may have different embellishments but it coordinates really well with the paper collection.
I only have a few kits available, so if you want me to hold one for you, let me know ASAP. You can take a good look at the entire kit on my YouTube: 4umarlene1.

You get all this goodness for just $19.99 plush shipping.

So much fun, so little time.

This so cute altered project was done by my niece. She came over very early in the morning and all we did was work on projects. She's an amazing child growing fast into a young lady, she's smart and always caring for other peoples feelings. I'm so blessed to have her in my life. My sister and her hubby are great parents and it shows in everything this child does and says.
Well, I had to get this kit when I saw it, cause it was so her. The kit is from Cosmo Cricket and it's call Material Girl, the little house was a $2.00 find from the thrift shop.
I love being an aunt!
Quick story..... It's got to be hard being a GOOD parent. My 6 year old nephew is going into the 1st grade. I have always, in the past gotten them their first phone. Well this year this little guy tells me he wanted a phone. I thought it was kinda early but, I got it for him anyway. Big mistake, I didn't think of running it by my sis and she was not happy when I gave it to him.
This of course is not new to me, I've gotten in trouble for things like this before. I think that must be the hardest part of parenting, knowing when to say no.
Ofcourse I tell them what a great job they're doing with their kids, It's true! So the kids always get to keep what I get them.
I love being an aunt!

Take a look at my first pin swap, I got a little carried away with the feathers. I forgot it was a pin swap and not a feather swap.

This "RICH" tag was gifted to me by my friend OLGA, she is a beautiful person inside out and her work is classy all they way. The ATC card I made for the June swap. I have to tell you these are great FUN to make.

Feast your eyes on these beautiful pieces of art work. Thank you ladies!

OK, I couldn't stop making pins, they are cheaper than therapy.

I was devastated to even think I might had to put her down. I couldn't hear a thing my Vet. said. On top of that I had left Olga and Kathryn in my home alone and I took off to the vet's. These ladies are so nice and sweet, sorry guys I'll make it up to ya.

My Juelsy is doing much better now, thank god! But, she was not doing well, she was totally paralyzed from her mid back down. I was blessed with finding a great Vet. He ASAP started her on intervenes Cortisone and I did two subcutaneous. She is now on oral meds and getting her physical therapy. She can now, at least walk and do her things. She is over 10 years old, and I'm just not ready to let her go.

Altered projects are so much fun.

For this project I used some vintage musical paper, post cards and some stamps. A bit of Prima and some bling. I'm keeping this one for me, as a writing journal.

This is my take on altering a clothespin. This is a clear clothespin, so I thought I use the elegant Teresa Collins. I loved how the charm just hangs freely from the center of the pin. I gifted this to my sis that love black and white.


What a nice surprise to get home and find the box. I couldn't wait to get my Cricut and when I got it I didn't know what to do with it. So I signed my self up to an intro class. I decided to invite my niece, who loves to scrap with me, well at the end of the class she was teaching me. We had a great day and ended up at Starbucks for our fav. I can't believe she is so smart and all grown up. We always have a great time together but, at the end of the day I was exhausted. Sometime I wounder how parents can do it 24/7. It's so great being an aunt!
