Desktop Calendar LO

Happy Thursday!  I am back today to share with you a desktop calendar project I made last month.  The Calendar is interchangeable and you can add a picture also.  I've been trying out different type of projects besides greeting cards and I am loving the outcomes, I spruce them up with quilling and voila! fun projects. Here it is...let me know what you think.

CHA Chicago 2012 and a Project!

Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday to all.  I am so excited to show you some pics from my CHA Chicago trip.  I was thrilled to have been able to attend this year.  It was my very first show and I had a blast.  Meeting designers and crafty peeps was the highlight of my trip.  Unfortunately I did not buy anything but was able to do make-and-takes and also took a class on Banners and Swags.Here's a picture of a project I worked on last week before I went on my trip.  My basement is almost finished and I've been making a few picture frames to decorate my walls down there.  Let me know what you think.

 This is my Project for today.  This was a $1 unfinished frame from Michael's, I painted it with Martha Stewart's Magnetic Paint and then top coated it with brown paint.  I made magnets with my Itop.   I used the DCWV Preppy Princess Stack.  Bird Punch from SU and last but not least Quilled a few flowers with branches.
The pictures are of my 3 1/2 yr old Daughter Macie. 

 Tim Holtz and I...(don't we make a cute couple! LOL)

 Jinger and I..Her Paper and Embellishment collections are Amazing!

Hope you enjoyed my post today.  I will be back with more later on this week.

Thank you for stopping by.

'I Miss You'- Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July Everyone!!!
I am having so much fun with my family today.  My brother makes the most amazing BBQ and he's out there grillin' right now while I came inside to post this.  I know I've been MIA for a while, but wonderful things have been going on in my neck of the woods, so my absence  hasn't been bad at all, at least not for me :).  I made this card for my sister Nancy who is a Marine and stationed in San Diego.  I miss her very much and we are sad that she could not be here with us today while we celebrate this memorable day.
I used the KinderStampo 'Through Sunshine and Rain' stamp set.  the paper is from Papertrey Inc.  White quilling paper strips that I cut out myself from the Recollections textured paper pack.  Stampin Up Oval and Scallop Oval punches.  Let me know what you think!

Enjoy your day and I will see you back again with more news and projects!

Quilled Hugs,
Linda K.
