Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

365 Cards Day 271 AND Crop Stop Monthly Card Sketch:)

Wow!  I've been workin' overtime tryin' to STRETCH myself and CREATE cards with a more VINTAG-Y feel.  I defininitely think I"m getting there (with a little help from my friends over at 365 Cards, of course).

When I woke up this mornin' and found that today's card challenge is vintage + lace, I thought....Whoo hoo!  I just made a card with lace and was gettin' ready to post it this morning...and GUESS WHAT??????


A dear friend gave me a bag of scraps a while back and when I went through it I found a few "vintage" fotos in the bag.  I decided to use one of them for this project!

As you probably know, I also LOVE inspirational quotes, and found this quote below (also in this bag).  I'd like to think I'm a WISE mother, and definitely gave my kids roots...the wings to fly part, you ask????  I'm still workin' on that, lol....I've been know to say to them "Fly Babies, Fly"...and it worked on my oldest, my wonderful "middle child" keeps circlin' around and coming back to the "nest" youngest?...she just tells me "but Mom, it's SCARY out there", lol...

Honestly, though, I'm very proud of ALL of my kids!

Oh, and for those of you who are wonderin', no this isn't a foto of me, nor is it anyone I friend (the one who gave me the bag of "goodness (scraps)") just LOVES to go to swap meets and probably found them in the bottom of a box:)

Well, I've got my ENTIRE recipe for tomorrow's card over at 365 Cards, so I have work to do:)  AFTER, of course, I go to WORK today:(
