Catered Crop–Map It Recipe Swap

Get out the map get out the map and lay your finger anywhere down
We'll leave the figuring to those we pass on our way out of town ~ The Indigo Girls


The Catered Crop has another fun recipe swap – MAP IT!   Using maps in crafting projects is a hot trend.    For this swap, break out those map papers or even a real map and get crafty!

For my card, I dug into some October Afternoon papers that I had stashed away.   The Road Maps collection had some fun map-themed papers that I used for this project.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
