More Than six Months

Hi Stampers...I have been totally wrapped up in a busy weekend and my project is up for  Simply Create, but I haven't posted the accompanying post. I'm very sorry about that.
So, over there  where life is a lot more simpler than it is in my neck of the woods, we can use anything we have that you have had for more than six months. I've been stamping for 7 or so years, and I hardly ever throw anything away and rarely give anything away either.

I am in a boxy mood. I'm trying several different sorts of packaging so I can figure out what's best to give away some small goodies in for the T-Day holidays. This is fom a template that was a freebie on Lauren Meader's  My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence blog.  Lauren is one busy woman. In addition to many family responsibilities, she designs templates and dsp every single month specializing in packaging.  I love her stuff and am a frequent buyer. This cute little crayon-style box was one of her first. I don't know if it's still available. All of the items used on the box, with the exception of the scripture, are quite a bit older than six months...some retired. The scripture is from Dee here. Yet another designer who is kind enough to share her talent. Her forte is a scripture each Tuesday free to her readers. See, you don't always need dollars to hone your stamping skills.

Off to continue my busy week. I was given some fresh organic beets and I found a salad recipe in the Food Network October magazine...this is one of the few food-related magazines that's less than $5.00, on the newstand. Love the price and the magazine. Have a great weekend.
