I signed up on PCP two weeks ago and decided to comlete one of their challanges....how could I resist, it involved animanls. So this is what I camp up with...
I used my cricut to cut out the puppy and house....still learning this cricut and shadowing....as you can see...lol I found the saying online, and I t hought how cute to send to a child receiving a new friend. I used and edge distress to distress the edges on the wording block, and DCWV paper packet for the bone paper. The bellies and twill ribbon came from CTMH. The only thing I was concerned with was the puppy eye...it looks HUGE...lol but I had too. I hope you enjoy looking!

At least I hope it is....lol If you have tried to leave a comment I learned it was being difficult. I am still learning blogger so a new friend suggested I try something and I did. I am hoping this works! Haha..if you can let me know....I love feedback on all my posts!
My sweet hunny made me a paper tower for my papers, however we still need a some more slats, so Lowe's trip tomorrow and I will need another tower as I have more paper...lol
I primed the outside with a dark color in error, but didnt want to waste so I used it. I only primed the outsides and a little in, as the paper would hide the sides and bottom. (once filled with paper) He measured the holes 1 1/2" apart and we added dowels cut into 2" pieces...he drilled holes all the way thru both sides to insure proper placement.
I ended up painting, painting it this cream color, as we bought paint from the discount bin...only paid $3 for a gallon, which will be good to coordinate the other items in my room...and another tower. We need more slats like I mentioned before, but each tower will hold 32 colors.
I put my blocks on the bottom for now, the cuddle bug has found its home....lol
And here is the rest of my colors, and this my friends is why I need another tower..lol
So many different colors...but I love having the choices and I still need more colors!

I am sitting here at my "regular" job...lol...checking on my blogs and facebook....and found a Blog Crawl with Bella. Shhh!!! I am caught up with work, so I thought I would check it out...I love these srapping blog crawls, not just for the prizes, but meeing new bloggers for one. I have found my passion for scrapping and making cards. To me a handmade card is so much more then one bought at the store...I even made them when I was younger for people and my daddy. And I didnt even no about scrapping when I was younger, of course we are talking about the 70's and 80's. A friend of mine was telling me she made her son a scrapbook for christmas of his twin daughters first year. And as she was describing to me the book, as I am in another state now, I thought how beautiful it must be. She said Denise, I dont have all of that stuff you have or tools. I told her you dont need to have everything under the sun in scrapbooking supplies to make a beautiful scrapbook. A scrapbook is about what your vision is, not what anyone elses is. She did buy some things of course! Who could resist in reality! Her daughter-n-law cried when she seen it. As I look over these blogs, I see beautiful work with minimal supplies, and they are gorgeous. But I have to admit, I wouldnt mind winning more supplies, cause to me, can we ever have "enough?", not in my book..lol Well I will posting some more art on Sunday, made a few things last week but didnt post. Everyone have a great craft weekend, and remember to get outside and make memories to scrap.
