It's been a while since I did a Friday's 5 Faves post.  
These are five of my favorite things from the past week including a favorite pic and a favorite pin.  It also includes "Coffee Love". Why?  Because I LOVE COFFEE!

1. Time spent crafting with my granddaughter, Lilly.  She LOVES  to craft!  
 She loves Minions and princesses!  We also made Daddy an OU tissue box.  Dad is a big Oklahoma University Sooner's fan.

2.  My new toy for my craft room.
Now I can watch my soaps while I craft!  lol

3.  My blooming flowers.  They are looking so pretty!
I just have a few but I enjoy sitting out and looking at them.

4.  My fave pic for the week:
This is my great grandson.  He's such a cutie!

5.  My fave pin for the week:
I can't wait to make one!



It's really hard to stop at five!  I completed several projects that I would love to post here-but that's another day!  : )

Thank you for coming by and, hopefully, following and commenting!

...a few of my latest creations.

I love working with paper-it's my favorite crafty thing to do.  I got a new paper pack a couple of weeks ago that I fell in love with!  It's the Paper Studio Kellerkurtz & Company pack.  It has the most beautiful papers and they all coordinate with each other.  I purchased it at Hobby Lobby-my favorite place to shop!  lol

I've already made several projects from it.  It won't take long to use up this pack!!

Altered composition book.  I really love these!

Inside front pocket

This is my fave of the two.  I LOVE dress forms!


Inside front pocket

I've already started a few more projects using this paper pack.  Isn't it gorgeous??!!


I shared the following projects in an earlier post which you can see HERE.

I made this from food boxes and use it for my TV remotes on my end table.

This is a metal tray from $ Store.  It was a gift for a friend.


The altered composition books can be purchased from my shop:
I hope you will take a look!  Thanks!  : )

As always, thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to visit me!

Friday already!  Time flies when you're having fun-I guess.  lol

I visited my friend, +LaDenna Lawrence  this past weekend.  We always have a blast!  We do a lot of visiting, laughing and crafting.

For our side by side challenges, we chose to use food boxes, trays from $1 Store and paper.  We do our best to use what we have on hand.  We do a lot of re-purposing.

These are the boxes we used.  The base is made from cardboard.

I made mine to hold the TV remotes.  The papers I chose are movie themed from the Paper Studio Kellerkurtz & Company paper pack.  I love this whole pack!!  You will be seeing a lot of it!

 I attached paper cut outs to some paper medallions for decoration.

 Side view.

This is a tablet made from chip board.  We used LaDenna's new Cinch to bind it.  I have to have one!  I have a Bind It All but I really like the Cinch.

This is the Bind It All like mine.  

And this is the Cinch!  I'm going to look for one in pink and trade LaDenna-her room is pink and mine is turquoise.  : )

 This wall hanging is made from a silver tray purchased from the $1 Store. I sectioned it so I could use different papers from my new stack.  The embellishments came from my friend +Suzanne Thomas who lives in Tasmania!  She makes the most awesome cards and other fun paper crafts!  Take a peek at her page and tell her Pam sent you!  ABBY AND ALBITS SCRAPPIN SHACK   Thank you Suzanne for all the bits!  : )

 One of these butterflies is a magnet.

 And this is a mini cork board.
These are several cards that we made. They are very simple but pretty.

Next week's challenge will be to make 5 Christmas ornaments using our Cricuts and card stock/paper.

So glad you took time out of your busy day to stop by!

LOOKING BACK at Altered Notebooks

Hi! It's been a week or so since I've posted.  I went on my monthly mini vacation to craft with my friend +LaDenna Lawrence . We always have such a good time. I usually dread going back home.
I attended her daughter's graduation while I was there. I'm so very proud of her!
We made several projects but I won't be posting them until later this week. 

Today, I'm looking back at notebooks that I have altered.  They are among some of my favorite things to do.  I'm working on a few to list in my ETSY SHOP for back to school.

This was my personal notebook that I kept notes in.

 I did some random stamping throughout.


The following books were made and sold.

 I love the colors here.

I think this is one of my faves.

This is a mini notebook that I did for Pay It Forward. 

Thank you for stopping by!
