I don’t know about you, but every time I type Little Darlings, I think of the song . . . Little Darlin by the Diamonds!  Just sayin!

I have one final Graphic 45 CHA project to share with you today.  I’ve seen it all over the internet, so I might as well share it myself.  There were 2 items requested by Diane that we make . . . a tag and an altered container.   For my container, I chose to work with the 5×5 Kraft Board Box.


The front flap open


I didn’t get the inside album finished for CHA, put I do have some ideas (and inspiration) now to finish that up.


Of course, it wouldn’t be one of my projects with out flowers . . . oh how I LOVE flowers!


To add balance, a flower on the upper right corner.


One thing I learned when working on this, don’t cover the entire box in paper . . . the magnets don’t work . . . thus, the reason for the ribbon tied off to the side.  I needed something to keep it all closed and the metals tags were used to hold the ends of the ribbon in place.

That’s all for today, except to say . . . thanks for stopping by and remember life is short, enjoy the adventures of your day!

Good morning!  Well, I’m finally home after 3 weeks of traveling.  After I came home from the cruise, I had one more weekend of traveling to a sorority meeting.  If I can get my butt in gear now, I’ll be spending some time in the studio.  Of course, it’s still a mess from CHA projects and the Christmas decorations are still in the middle of the basement (and Mallory’s room and the studio) that need to be put away . . . the storage closet is in my studio, so I’ve been putting everything off.

Anyhoo, today on Graphic 45 Blog they are showcasing some tags that were made by the Design Team for CHA.  Mine is there today along with Gloria Stengel’s, who has an excellent tutorial to go along with her.  Hop on over and check them out.


You’ll find a complete supply list along with other pictures on the Graphic 45 Blog.

Well, that’s it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by and spending a little bit of time with me!


Happy Wednesday!  I’m home from CHA and so tired, but I’m still chugging along.  Today I unpacked, started laundry, did some repacking and then did some last minute shopping for my Smiley from millan.net

I didn’t take many pictures at CHA, mainly because I was running around from meeting to meeting.  I never even pulled my camera out of my bag . . . I grabbed the cell phone each time and took just a few.  HOWEVER, I’ve borrowed a few photos from some friends.

Here I am with Nancy Wethington and Laura Denison at the Graphic 45 booth.

I was so thrilled to finally meet these girls . . . I’ve admired their work for a long time!

Here we all are with Diane!  That’s Gloria Stengel and Jane Tragenza on the right.

We had a G45 Dinner that night and we all gathered outside the restaurant for a group photo.  It’s a little blurry, but it’s the best I could find.  Jane’s son took a number of photos, so hopefully I’ll have another to upload.

CHA is not CHA unless I can spend a few minutes catching up with Wendy Vecchi.  Here we are at her book signing.

I’ll be gone for the next week or so, but I’ll try and post a few updates  . . . if I can.  While I’m away, let me leave you with these thoughts . . . CHA was fabulous for new adventures and things to come . . . there will be some big changes and announcements coming to the BAD Side over the next few months.  I think I can probably share this one now, because I’m over the moon excited . . . I’ve scheduled a weekend of classes at The Queen’s Ink!  YES, I will be teaching some classes with the Queen!  There will be more info on this later . . .

Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, grab onto the adventures of the day!


Good morning!  I just got in from my Graphic 45 dinner and while I’m packing up to leave in the morning I remembered that I have one final project to share.

This is one I did for Graphic 45 and also one of my favorites.  We were challenged to make a tag from the Staples packaging and this is what I came up with, using the packaging from the Metal Doorplate.


I need to cut this short, but I’ll be able to post a little more when I arrive home.

Thanks for stopping by!
