* This super, duper cute tag AND the lollipop are both from the Mickey & Friends cartridge. I loved how the tag wasn't your regular straight lines! Definitely more fun!!

The house was cut at 7 1/2", but after assembly, I think I may cut it at around 9" next time. I used George & Basic Shapes to cut the "shingles" for the roof to give it a little more layers (I of course noticed one side was a tad bit longer than the other AFTER I uploaded my pictures - go figure! :)). The flowers were cut at about 1", .8" and .6" (on my Gypsy) and the curtains were hand cut.
Wish me luck!!!

Do you like to receive gifts? How about give them? Well this hop is all about the outside…the wrapping; gift bags, boxes, baskets and more. There are 22 wonderful stops on this hop and we hope you will take some time to stop in and see everything we have created for you.
For my project I created a hand-made gift bag that would be just the right size - in this case, 5" high x 4" wide. It's perfect for knick knacks, jewelry, gift cards, etc. The flower layers were cut from the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. It's a simple little bag, but I'd like to think it makes a statement! lol :)
Here's a little close-up of my flower...

As I was blog surfing last night, I ran across THIS old post with information about a biography on paper back. I almost passed it by because I honestly don't need to know what's going on in Hollywood, but figured it wouldn't hurt to read what it was all about. Those three little paragraphs, on that little post caught my attention to the point of making me call Barnes & Nobles to see if they had it in stock. A few hours after reading the post, I had the book in my hands. I haven't been this excited about a book in a long time - given with an 18 month old running around, the thought of reading has just made me a bit drowsy lately lol - but the books talks about a healthy lifestyle physically and spiritually (both things that I have struggled with in the past).
What does all this have to do with my altered notebook?! lol I'm getting there! Some times when I read books of this sort, I like to not only take notes, but jot down thoughts. So I needed a notebook! My travel theme is not only for my love of traveling, but for a new journey I'm hoping to embark on because you know what they say... "It's not the destination, it's the journey!"
Is there a journey you'd like to embark on? Or something you've always wanted to accomplish? Or maybe that "what if" that's always been in the back of your mind? I'd love to read about it, if you have a moment to leave a comment...or shoot me an e-mail!
Kind of deep today, huh?! lol :)
