Hosting Monday Mania @ CA&F .... plus my Birthday Blog Candy!!!
The time has come for me to say WOOT WOOT!!!! I wanted to scream on top of the rooftops when Amy asked me to host this week's Monday Mania at Club Anya!!
For my challenge, I wanted to do something diffrent... something that hasn't been done before. Incorporate some type of paper ephemera or jewelry that is not your typical, run-of-the-mill paper crafting supply. Include such things as mementos, ticket stubs, price tags, packaging material... ANYTHING!
I am FOREVER collecting souvenirs or inspiring tidbits here and there. This card is actually for my preggo self last year. I'm probably going to include this on a scrapbooking lay-out.
The embellishments are:
1. an old earring bought at Etsy as an owl mobile.
2. a crib made out of incense sticks' ends.
3. clothing tags (whale, swaddled babe, and tag behind the sentiment).
4. a strip of a favorite handwriting (kol laj).
5. a drawn heart/initial by my niece, I.
6. picture of giraffes saved from party favors made by my sister.
The embellies were saved from my baby shower for MK. I am quite a pack-rat but am so happy I got to "recycle" these special items. I have enjoyed my pregnancy tremendously. And all the feelings associated with that bliss & promise of a new beginning for me are embedded in these mementos that I saved. Anyway, I am going to stop right there before I start tearing up. I'm corny like that!
I did want to add that I also like re-using old jewelry as charms. Isn't that owl 'mobile' darling? :)
I hope you all join in on the challenge at CA & F. Please upload your entry at the Gallery under Monday Mania. Select Rinne's ephemera. Can't wait to see your creations!
And this *blissful* post, DRUMROLL please.........
Here's my birthday blog candy:
There are more than 40 items that include some of my favorite items -- Dear Lizzy rub-ons, Love Elsie stickers, kol laj papers, distressing inks, 6x6 patterned papers, small & big brads, a mini canvas and a cardboard album to name most of them.
Three stamps are also included -- an anime stamp from In Style, a ching chou kuick stamp from Sweet Pea, and a Cheeky stamp from TGF.
Please leave me a comment below and link back to my blog by April 25th, midnight Standard Pacific Time. I will pick a random winner by the afternoon of that day. If you can, please also post a pic of my blog candy on the side bar of your blog. I will ship ANYWHERE.
Thanks for visiting!!!
