Happy Friday & some blog candy.....

Happy Friday everyone! This week's gone by super fast!! Today was my DD's first day back to school. I got a little weepy the other night. I can not believe that she is already a junior in high school. It seems like just yesterday this little girl with pigtail's was crying because she did not want to be left at Kindergarten. Now, she's almost thru with high school. Seriously, where does the time go? I've never really thought of myself as old until now.

Ok, enough of that. Let's get on with business shall we?

Here's another card for the collection of Halloween cards. There is a TAC set of stamps called Spooktacular that I just love!! This card was made using that set.

I stamped the image and colored it in with pencils. I layered it on to a piece of Basic Black and then layered that on to a piece of K&Company orange candy glitter paper. I stamped the sentiment on to Only Orange cs with black ink and then layered that on to a piece of Basic Black and I was done. Super fast & easy. Another thing I think I mentioned the other day, I am adding a piece of white cs inside my cards. Just something about it makes it look a little more finished.

This little project is something that I wanted to show you for a while but really couldn't. This is the first little project I made for my Monday challenge over at Paper Wings. It is a tag book.

The front and back are just coasters that I covered with some DP from TAC's Sands of Time collection. The flowers I stamped are TAC's Gerbena Daisy that I stamped twice and cut out to add to the front of the book.

I punched the holes in it, used eyelets and ribbon to secure it closed.

The way that I folded the paper inside left the openings staggered from top to side. Each "page" has an opening with a tag pull out in it. And each "page" is decorated either with an embellishment or a stamp.

This little book is a perfect way to use all those little tags that come with the paper sets. I never seem to use those up.

Now, if you are interested ~ leave me a comment on this post and I will pick a winner on Friday August 15th thru random number generator and I will send you this little book.

Well ~ I'm off or now to blog hop a bit. I'm waiting for my TAC shipment to come in. It's always fun to rummage thru the box of new goodies!!

Have a great day & weekend if I don't get back here!
And remember ~ time goes by fast.... Take time to tell your loved ones what they mean to you!

Beautiful little book, Joani. You will have to share how you folded the pages inside to give the opening. Love how you did it.

What an awesome book! I love that the pages are open at the top.

My DS is starting HS this year whoa! Just waiting to see how it goes.

My oldest DS should've graduated this year, but hopefully that will happen in January.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Joani as always your work just blows me away. Great job on both the Halloween card and the Tag book. Very nice.

You are in Halloween mode and I am in xmas mode trying to figure out what I am going to do for xmas cards this year.

Love, Love, Love the tag book! Great idea to use up some scraps. I may have to use this idea as gifts for the kids at school. Thanks for sharing with us.

Joani, Another fabulous project! I am glad you finally get to "reveal" it! Thanks also for the idea of using all those bits of pieces we all have lying around.
