Catered Crop–Safe Travels Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is “Safe Travels”.     Planes, trains, automobiles or anything related to travel all works for this fun challenge.

For my project, I inked up this Technique Tuesday stamp set that I won from Paper Craft magazine a while back.    The sentiment says “One’s destination is never a place but a new way of seeing things.”

It has been a hard couple of weeks for my family.   We had to put Summer, who was a part of our family for almost 15 years, to sleep.    We still miss her and are adjusting to not having her in our home.

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.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
