Some Things To Share

Hey Bloggies, how is everyone today? It's been pretty hot and getting somewhat humid here now. I hear that the Cicadas are supposed to be coming out soon, eww! I have not seen or experienced one before and it's just our luck that right before we move Virginia is due for one and in our area too!! We got through almost 4 years without them. O-well I suppose this is something I can say I've experienced now. haha! Hopefully none of them hitch a ride on our moving trailer.

Anyway, I have a few things I want to share with you today. One being the Tim Holtz 2013 tag for May. I finished mine yesterday and put it into the display along with the others.
If you would like to play along with Tim, here is a link:

Here is my finished one:

I also wanted to share with you a prize that I had won a few weeks ago from the wonderful Jessica Sporn, she was doing a very generous drawing on her blog and I happen to win one of her beautiful watercolors. 

It's so bright and cheery and I'm in love with it. Thank you Jessica!!! If you would like to check out her blog, here is a link:

The final thing I wanted to share with you today is my finished piece from the online Andy Skinner class that I took called The Book OF Ruination. This was just awesome! I learned so much and now I know a few more techniques. WOW! For this I didn't use a book, I used a box that I had gotten at the thrift store. It has a little hanger at the top and it slides open,  It looked like this when I began...

You'll never believe what it looks like now... 
Here are some photos..........

I highly recommend this online class, it's so informative and easy too. I love how mine turned out and I'm not sure what I will put inside yet but I will think of something.. Here is a link to the class:

You also get a bonus class called "Rock this book", can't wait to try that one too.
Thanks for coming by, have a great day.
