timeless templates...

for those of you who do not know lauren meader, then you need too! *wink wink* she is super crafty and amazing with templates and just recently released a template line through papertrey ink.
i of course have no will power and bought both of her new templates as well as downloading the free one. she issued a challenge on her blog and here is what i came up with for the first one:

i made a buch of dried apples last week and thought that this new box would be the perfect way to make some treat boxes. i am super excited about the possibilities of this little fella. i think that all the neighbors will be happy come the holidays.
**oh and i used the american crafts glitter marker on the apples, it is hard to tell but that is as bling as this girl gets**

cs: hobby lobby orange, stampin'up kraft, old olive & whisper white
stamps: stampin'up tart& tangy, pockey silhouettes
ink: stampin'up markers old olive, ruby red & chocolate chip/classic pad
misc: american craft ribbon & glitter pen, stampin'up circle & scallop punches, dimensionals

happy world card making day...

whoa was it crazy here. my friend is gathering cardsforheroes; we ended up with 70 cards when everything was said and done. here is a not so perfect photo of all the cards and my little card elves. they chose all the paper, stamps, and which MACM we were going to duplicate. my kids love MACM... we usually watch them together and try to complete one. although... most of these cards were made easier due to the 6 & 4 year old helpers, but thanks for the inspiration kristina!
