Stuck on you

This week's challenge is to use up some of those printed stickers you have piled up here & there! I know, craziness right? I personally just don't use that many stickers any more, I'd much prefer to make my own with my handy dandy Cricut E... but I'm too cheap, errr thrify to throw them out.
Here's my Creation:
Products used: stickers & alpha-Making Memories 5th Avenue; Diamond Glaze; Ink-CTMH; ribbon-misc

Flowers Flowers everywhere

my new pen & pencil holder is supposed to look like two flowers, one on top of the other... I'm not sure I actually accomplished the look, but I like it
The top view:
This challenge is to make flowers out of floral paper, that's right you can cut some flowers out on your die cut machine, stack em up & drive a brad thru the middle... or get kind of crazy creative like I did!

How did I make this silly thing... you see I design developments for a civil engineer & our rolls of paper come in 36" rolls, these are called cores. I simply used my husband's chop saw and cut them to the length I wanted, dressed them up, added a little ink to the edges, then glued the whole mess together in the shape I wanted... actually Ron suggested it & I actually liked his suggestion.

Prints Prints Prints

This week's challenge is to use 3 very different prints on a creation!

Here's what I came up with:
I would have taken pictures of the products used or listed them for you on this one, but it was all scraps. This is my favorite Thank You stamp, it's made by Hippo Heart of San Mateo, CA; I have no idea how long I've had it.

Who's this month's winner?

First I want to show off what I did this morning with my friend, Wendy. I replaced all my recycled glass jars with MM medium & large ones (got them for a super price from Crop Chocolate) therefore, these were hand-me-downs to Wendy. She's here in the Attic playing with me this weekend and I didn't want to send her home with plain boring jars so we dressed them up!
Oh yea, and this month's winner..... Jasmine! Jasmine, I'm going to let you choose your prize so please email me at ScrapAddictsAttic at gmail dot com to select either a $10 Crop Credit from Crop Chocolate or a random ribbon/button/embellishment kit

Loving you...

more each day... Made one for my niece, Autumn who is 9 and born the same year as Ike. Made one for my three nieces that are sisters; Brooklyn, Maddie & Lyric. Made the last one just because I had 3 and will send it with this month's prize package to the random winner!

This super sweet digi is from Spyder's Corner (of course) because I just love her work and she give a freebie each week, all you have to do it go get it... plus I usually drop her a line letting her know I was there. She hasn't seen me for a while but I'm getting caught up again.

This is a bonus challenge! Make a Valentine or Love card, post it, link it up before noon on Jan. 15 CST to be in my random drawing for a prize package!

my first ATC

Over on Crop Chocolate we were talking about ATC's the other day & decided, Hey! We should do a swap. Our swap is Valentine's themed but I wanted my very first ATC's to be extra special & all about me :-) Here it is:
I made three of very close to being the same & numbered them for future reference.
I'm giving #2 & #3 to my bff's

This week's challenge is to make an ATC all about you! The cards are 2.5”x3.5”, I included my "user name", date, series # & signed them since they're for my besties

Blog award from Spyder!

Lyn from Spyder's Corner sent me this sweet Blog Award! It comes with a $5 gift certificate to spend in their store! How fabulously cool is that! To qualify for the $5.00 Digi's 'With Attitude!' Gift Certificate you must state 3 things that makes you different from everyone else, then nominate 5 blogs and let those 5 blogs know you've nominated them. Lastly, you must display the Blog Award Badge in your sidebar and link it back to the Digi's With Attitude! For all the details of this and the Digi's With Attitude please visit THIS LINK

So 3 things that make me "different" (the list is so long, where to begin?!)...
1. I am around men probably 90% of the time (work, home, etc.).
2. I love broccoli... plain, covered in butter, surrounded in cheese, dipped in dressing.
3. Both my dads walked me down the aisle and neither was married at my mom at the time.
