Thanks for Paul McCartney

Well, this past weekend was an exciting one for my 16 year old daughter.  I may have mentioned what a massive Beatles fan she is.  This past summer we promised her if Paul McCartney ever came close to us we would try to get her tickets.  Well, 3 months later (wouldn't you know it) the dates were announced and we got her floor tickets to see her idol Paul McCartney in Vancouver BC.  Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday.... and Merry Christmas!
 
We called it the Ultimate Father/Daughter Date!  Sunday Nov 25th Mercedes and her Dad boarded a plane for Vancouver to see Paul Live at BC Place Stadium.  When she got home yesterday, she was full of stories and excitment.  So we decided to make her Daddy a Thank You card. 
 
I grabbed an image from Google and printed for the grunge Union Jack paper, much like the Headboard I made for her.... remember? Then cut out IMAGINE with my TH Movers and Shapers die.

 
Mercedes and I made this card together *snort* more like 70/30!  But... she was present in charge of glue, punching, photo's and adhering.  She also picked the sentiment from SMS, Many Thanks stamp set.

Welcome back to Vancouver after 48 years!
 
 
What a lovely way to thank her Daddy for a day she will never forget.  She showed me what she wrote in the card.  Oh ya, he's gonna cry!

  2. Wow, what a lucky girl!! I personally would love to see Paul McCartney and I'm a mom of a 24 year old. Isn't it neat that our kids can relate and enjoy the same music that we do? Great card that you made together! TFS.

  3. Wonderful concert memory. I saw Paul Mc Cartney in concert at the American Airlines Center (AAC) in Dallas, TX. Enjoyed the concert. My fav concert of all is Rod Stewart. He walked through the audience and allowed photography. A close second is Elton John concert. 3rd fav concert is Adam Lambert that I saw at the Winstar Casino in OK. Paul's concert is my 4th fav.

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …

A BEVY OF MONSTERS

If you are looking for a great Halloween card that is UNDER 10 MINUTES to build this is it.  I made a variety of these to give you different ideas of creeps you can make.  From start to finish these Halloween cards are a breeze and would be perfect for a class, office and for some friends.  I made these in between making projects...mostly waiting for things to dry!  The googlie eyes are different sizes make them so cute.

Vampire, I love this one!  I didn't distress the white glitter paper.  Then added this red glitter glue to the fangs.
Ghost, I posted this the other day HERE
All my fun cards together
I cut the cards to 5x5.  Then I cut a 4 3/3x 4 3/4 black for the black behind the googlie eyes.  Pick your coloured carstock and rip.  I distressed the torn edges a bit then…
