Happy Wednesday to all!

This week's challenge reveal is projects +LaDenna Lawrence  and I worked on when I visited her last weekend.

We had a great time as usual -  shopping, eating, crafting, talking and laughing! 
There's never enough time to do everything we want to do.  But I will be going back the middle of next month for another great visit!

  This is a cork board made from a silver tray from Dollar Tree. I painted it a shimmery copper and covered the cork with fabric.  I used gems for the push pins but am going to replace them with real coffee beans.

LaDenna made these years ago. I had never seen one and fell in love with it and had to make this one!  It's made from 2 toddler socks sewn together. The hanger is a craft stick with wire.  These would make great additions to baby shower gifts!

This is a 1/4" piece of wood covered with paper.  I still need to attach a ribbon for hanging.  This is for my new great granddaughter, Emma. Her room is done in the black and white damask and hot pink.

And here is where I will sneak in a new pic of her!  lol

We also worked on an explosion box.  I have made these before.  We both got the new Cricut Cart- Mini Books.  Love it!  It eliminates all the tedious measuring. 
 I will be using this cart a lot!   In fact, it is our new challenge for the week:

We have to use a wooden box and use the cart to make a mini album to go in it.
This will be fun!

I always have such a good time in Amarillo! Can't wait to go back!

Mother's Day is coming soon.  Please visit my shops for some great ideas: 

Thank you!

Everyone have a lovely day/night!
