I wish I had my own Scrapbook Store!!! I wish I could teach Scrapbooking and Cardmaking!!! I wish I could just do crafting all the time!!!

I have started to believe that work is getting in the way of my serious play. LOL!!! I love to Scrapbook and make cards and all kinds of Paper Crafts. I have the Cricut Expression and Love Love Love It too!!!. Have a wonderful husband whom I cherish and thank god for every day. My son who is 30 now is starting his own business and is a slow start but he's working on it. I have many wonderful friends whom I couldn't live without. Hope you enjoy seeing all my creations and I hope you will share yours with me too.

My First Purse made of Paper!!!

Here is a look at my very first Purse I made from Paper. It measures 7" wide by 5" tall not including the Handles which adds another 3". It will hold 10 notecards and envelopes and has a hook and loop closure under the gold button which I cut the back off of and then glued to the closure. Some of the parts I cut with the Cricut Expression. I only used 2 pieces of 12"x12" cardstock for the Purse Itself. I really think it came out pretty good. Let me know what you think. Thanks for Looking.
