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.

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!


  1. Amazing! I love your remote control holder. Who would think that you could create such a pretty and functional accessories holder from old boxes. Nice Work.

  2. Awesome! Such fun! Having a friend to "play" with lends to incredible inspiration! You two really ROCK!
