Vintage papers and ephemera candy from Zarah

Zarah has some blog candy this time! Look at at his:

Mmmmm... Lots of little treasures in there!

Home sick

I've been home sick the last two days. Yesterday was "wasted" with resting and sleeping on the couch, but today I scrapped:

This is for Pencil Lines' sketch #118.
The snakes were cut from an old grade school text book and enhanced with some Stickles. The photo is from 2000 when DH and I got to stop, a few times actually, in Vietnam. Love, love, love Vietnamese food! It's even better than Thai!
The wine however, is a curiosity, at least for tourists. For the locals it's a fix-it-all medicine. I didn't try any, but DH was tricked into it. Blech!!!

And even more candy!

I think I've mentioned before how good Zarah is at finding these things. There are so many great give-aways around and all you have to do usually is put up a photo and a link to whoever is giving away the candy and you're in!
So here's another great one:

The generous blogger this time is Bev.
Just look at all that stuff! Oh the things that can be created with this loot...!

Another Very Vintage LO =)

I just finished this LO that I made for Zarah's challenge blog, and I have to say I'm quite happy with it! I used only KIT 5, Very Vintage, except for the Dymo labels. I just find this kit so versatile! And the faux leather is sooo much fun to cut!

I made a LO (using KIT 5 Very Vintage)for Pencil Lines again, it's been quite a while...

And putting that square punch to good use again,(SOOO wish I had an XL Round 'n round Squeeze punch!!!)here's a LO I did for FiskarsCrafts:

The squares are all cut from misc. Christmas cards I've received over the last 8 or so years. I'm a hoarder and never throw cards or letters out. Unfortunately! Wish I could. This was the only way I could minimize the ever growing pile of cards.

I also decided to do "Project 365" this year to make myself be better about taking photos of everyday moments. Crossing my fingers for myself...
