Well I made this altered/hybrid cookie jar with the great new kit Giving Thanks by Meredith Cardall and AngieKovacs at ES. You get some free quick pages this week if you buy the kit (yeah!!!) Anyway I created the design and then printed on photo paper. Put the insert inside and then added ribbon, flowers, brads, etc. This is a cookie jar I got at WalMart for about 6 bucks and then you can make new inserts for each season or holiday. It would be a great gift too,
Just had to share with you the newest kit from Meredith Cardall and Bella Gypsy coming to ES on Monday the 19th. It's called Mr. Cuddle Monkey. I used Meredith's darling Quick pages that you can purchase or are free with the purchase of her kit.
Well I made a fun game for primary with little felt hats I got at the craft store. I used the new kit Boo 2 U from Meredith Cardall to make the cute bands(digital paper cut in strips and then inked) and the fun elements and numbers I attached to them(LOVE THESE!). I tried glue and glue dots to adhere the paper and then just ended up stapling the band to the hat. I used foam squares to adhere the elements and after punching out the numbers with a circle punch and gluing on the circle cardstock I added eyelets and ribbon and used the cutest little safety pins from Making Memories to hook the number to the hat.

I then had the primary kids I teach music to pick a hat and each number matched a song that we would sing. I added a little candy corn element and placed it underneath one and the child who picked that one got to choose whatever song they wanted. I can use the hats for any choosing game. I absolutely love Halloween and all the fun colors and costumes. I will definately have to use this cute digital kit to create some fun pages with the cosutmes I'm sure to see this year(my kids are on the lookout for that perfect costume.) I'm usually a witch every year to scare the kiddies who come to my door but I may just change it up this year and find something new.
Did I get your attention. This photo is just a sample of what's in store. So if you want to get some fun freebies that I made with Krystal Hartley's kits you will have to go check out her team blog HERE on Sunday Oct 4th to find out all about it.
Well I don't know if any of you have gone on the settings and clicked on the new updated image editor or not. Basically it's suppose to make adding pictures so much easier. Well I use MSN and when I went and changed it to the new update I suddenly couldn't do anything on my blog. I went and switched it back to the old way and still nothing. Well I went on the search to see if there was any info about it. I saw something about going to Internet Explorer. Well when I go to my blog from IE it works just fine and the new photo uploader is fabulous. But alas when I'm in MSN(my main homepage) it doesn't load so it just gives me that little rectangle box at the bottom right of the screen but it doesn't load. If anyone knows how to get it fixed I'd love some help. I'd hate to have to go over to Internet Explorer everytime I want to post on my blog.
