More Websters Inspiration...

Good Tuesday Morning!

It feels so good to be back to blogging...between the Holidays, grading midterms and getting some silly bug that had me wiped out this weekend...I love feeling good again.

I forgot to mention on my last post that the wonderful scrubster surprised me Friday Morning and got us body wraps! I lost 21.5"! How cool is that? he lost 9 and only did his chest, stomach and hips....darn those men and how they loose the weight so easily! I am still drinking water like a mad women...it has me really dehydrated and I know I drank more than the required 64 oz, LOL! I am getting more excited for my new Banana Republic dress I scored last week for the Holidays. Gosh I love that store, I just need another job for it, LOL!

So here is an altered Ball glass jar I made for the Webster's November Challenge to alter a kitchen item. I used more of their new holiday lines that will be available in TWO kits at Serendipity Scrapbooks today! I love love love recycling things around the house and altering them. I find myself wanting to do this more and more than scrapbooking layouts.

I layered my Shimmerz paints I got at Serendipity on the prima felt flowers and the red flower...I never get the right light for those to sparkle...

I also ran the tag through my Cuttlebug and used a cool American Crafts foam shape I got over at Scrapadilly.

My mom and her friend Louise had me bring my BTA {make sure you check out the Zutter Sisters 12 Days of Christmas} to our scrappy weekend and I think I made 10+ of these coffee mini albums. The were easy once I got my mom to cut all the inside sheets, LOL! But I loooooooooooooooove reindeers and Andrea let me cut a bunch out with her Cricut {all hail the Cricut goddess---her not me, LOL!}.

Again, I spread the Shimmerz love on the reindeer...i love that i can use the paint on this kind of stuff so it doesn't curl on me.

Okay...hope everyone has a great week! I can't wait to blog hop and see all the fun Holiday treats everyone is making this month...such a fun time of year!
