vacation here i come!

so i haven't had a chance to go on my weekly blog visiting trip b/c i am jamming all my hours for work into 3 days! we leave for vacation tonight after i teach my class and i cannot wait! the only thing is, is that my boss is sitting on my class tonight so i am nnnnneeerrrvvvvoooouuuusss! {that spells nervous, LOL}

to calm my nerves this week i did the CPS sketch this week. here is my card:

Core'dinations Chocolate Box Cardstock {the core is green so when you sand it, the green comes through}. then i used the collage press journal spots along the sides as closures.



i printed my journal right on the back of the Core'dinations cardstock and then embossed it with the Twigs Cuttlebug folder. AND, of course, my fave Webster's Pages alpha stickers.



i used removable adhesive on the back so these journal spots just peel right off to open.

I think my feed reader is busted cause I missed a whole bunch of these, I love the altered jar, fantastic, those flap tickets are brilliant.

Neat card :)

PS--most of the things I've been posting on my blog are actually projects that I made back in July but never got to post due to my flu and then everything with Logan. I've done a little bit of scrapbooking since we've been home, but for the most part my Mojo has been lost (along with time) in nursing Logan 24/7 and chasing after Caeden! lol. Don't know what I was thinking when I thought that 23 months would be a "good age difference" lol.

Love your card!! How fun that you get to go on vacation soon! We FINALLY just got back. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I didn't do much blog hoppin' or computer anything while I was gone.

Love what you've done with the Collage Press too. Isn't that Knaves such a great line?

Have fun on your trip.

xoxo
