My Crafty Life, Episode 8: Metro Card Earrings

This is a great project to make with your 'tween and teen girls.  Not only does it provide for some quality mother-daughter time, but it is also a fun and educational recycling activity.  Not to mention that they're making something cool and funky that they can wear.  Wickedly awesome!  (If you would like to purchase these earrings already made, please visit my Etsy shop at Wednesday's Dream.)

Half a Layout

Busy, busy, busy.  Here's half a layout I did for my son David's school album.  I didn't post the other half because his classmates are in it, and I don't post photos of others without permission.  On this layout, I used patterned paper from a stack by DCWV.  The title has metal letters from Making Memories that I painted with acrylic paint to match my papers.  I used some star brads and some chipboard shapes from Basic Grey to complete the page.  Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your week.
