Thanks for Paul McCartney

Well, this past weekend was an exciting one for my 16 year old daughter.  I may have mentioned what a massive Beatles fan she is.  This past summer we promised her if Paul McCartney ever came close to us we would try to get her tickets.  Well, 3 months later (wouldn't you know it) the dates were announced and we got her floor tickets to see her idol Paul McCartney in Vancouver BC.  Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday.... and Merry Christmas!
 
We called it the Ultimate Father/Daughter Date!  Sunday Nov 25th Mercedes and her Dad boarded a plane for Vancouver to see Paul Live at BC Place Stadium.  When she got home yesterday, she was full of stories and excitment.  So we decided to make her Daddy a Thank You card. 
 
I grabbed an image from Google and printed for the grunge Union Jack paper, much like the Headboard I made for her.... remember? Then cut out IMAGINE with my TH Movers and Shapers die.

 
Mercedes and I made this card together *snort* more like 70/30!  But... she was present in charge of glue, punching, photo's and adhering.  She also picked the sentiment from SMS, Many Thanks stamp set.

Welcome back to Vancouver after 48 years!
 
 
What a lovely way to thank her Daddy for a day she will never forget.  She showed me what she wrote in the card.  Oh ya, he's gonna cry!

  2. Wow, what a lucky girl!! I personally would love to see Paul McCartney and I'm a mom of a 24 year old. Isn't it neat that our kids can relate and enjoy the same music that we do? Great card that you made together! TFS.

  3. Wonderful concert memory. I saw Paul Mc Cartney in concert at the American Airlines Center (AAC) in Dallas, TX. Enjoyed the concert. My fav concert of all is Rod Stewart. He walked through the audience and allowed photography. A close second is Elton John concert. 3rd fav concert is Adam Lambert that I saw at the Winstar Casino in OK. Paul's concert is my 4th fav.

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!

Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
