Hello friend caddy bag

I've had my eyes on this new scoreboard die that arrived in the stores last week. And finally was able to get one for myself on Saturday. It is called caddy bag and is a XL size die. I had some leftover pieces from last week's make & take kits and used it to decorate the bag.I filled it with 2 Bath & Body hand sanitizers which fit perfectly in the bag. You can also put different sized treats in it.
Dies used are from the Country Foliage line - accordion fold flowers set, decorative frames set and the swirl is from the edges cartridge for the Eclips machine.
I was a little shaken up this afternoon while crafting downstairs in my craft room. I heard all these really loud and weird noises coming from the hedge in front of my window. When I looked out my screen door, I saw 2 mongooses and I'm not sure if they were fighting or mating. Anyways, I was terrified to leave and I had to get back upstairs. So I got out my wood bat and a big rubbish can hoping to use it as a shield. Can you picture this??? I finally made it upstairs in one piece. LOL!!! If anyone knows how to get rid of mongooses, please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!!!

The make & takes

It's been a hectic week, but a lot of fun spending time with Cheri from Sizzix and getting more training on the Eclips machine. There's so many features that I have yet to explore and shortcuts.We made a milk carton box using the Eclips machine at our last make & take today at J's. We made a fancy cutout in the middle of the box. The box was made to fit on a 12x12 cardstock.I took a picture of my husband with Cheri at the end of the day. We were pooped!
We started our day at Photo Craft this morning and made this box with handles also using the Eclips machine. There was a butterfly that we put on the box but I took this photo before putting the butterfly on it.
The machine cut the center out using an embellishment die cut from another box and used a glue pen to draw around the window and we glittered it. It's so pretty!
We made this card at Flora-Dec using the Big Shot machine. All the dies used were from the Country Foliage line.
Cheri was at Stamps & Memories last week Friday making this box with the Eclips machine. The cutout was an embellishment from the same box cartridge.
I have one more box to post that I need to take a photo of.
Thanks for stopping by today and check back again for the last box. Have a great evening!!!

I'm back and make & take schedule

I'm back from Vegas and although I don't have anything crafty to post, thought I'd share with you some pictures that my husband took.
We stayed at The Orleans off of the strip. We checked in close to midnight and by the time they brought our luggage up, it was 2:30 am. I was not a happy camper. But the room was huge! The size of a suite.
Just the walk to our room took 160 steps from the elevator. It was at the very end of the long hallway. And another 160 steps from our room back to the elevator.
My husband who is usually the photographer, takes most of the pictures. Except this time, we ended up with a lot of these types of photos. See... very crooked photo. Here's another one.And then when I take the photo, I get facial expressions like this.
Anyways, just wanted to share some photos from our trip.
My girlfriend Cheri from Ellison is back in town this week. So I've been busy prepping kits and making sure we have everything for the make & takes scheduled for this weekend through next weekend. Every project is different.
