Sunday Scrappin #37

Where is the time going, this summer is buzzin right on by. It's hard to believe July is almost over. Well this week I didn't get much done craft wise, it was hot and I was just feeling lazy. If you haven't already you need to check out the Sunday Scrappin group, it's a fantastic group of creative people. I have made some wonderful friendships through there. I love that each week Amy gives us a different challenge.


Pictured below is the strawberry box for this weeks Sunday Scrappin challenge (make something fruity). For the "seeds" I used a white gel pen. It can hold a small trinket (jewelry, candy, etc). I have the pattern saved to my computer I think I found it on SCS (don't really recall though). If you would like the pattern you can leave me a message here or email me (email link on the side).


Keep participating in the different blog challenges

Make a birthday card for a 6 year old boy

Maybe do a scrapbook page

This week's Sunday Scrappin Challenge is to create something and mail it as a RAOK. A simple "thinking of you" note counts... and it doesn't have to be sent to a stranger, but it needs to be someone who wouldn't be expecting to hear from you. :) I thought this would be a fun one. You could make a postcard (stamped? collaged?), a card, a small gift... anything you want, but the challenge part is to get your project done and mailed to an unsuspecting recipient. And, if you can't think of anyone to send a little cheer to, you can always contact your local nursing home, Any Soldier. com, or your local church, any of which could give you the name of someone who would appreciate some happy mail. Have fun! This is perfect I have 2 cards done and they just have to be mailed to the recipients. I'm great at making but stink at mailing. The one card has been sitting here addressed ready to go since the 4th of July maybe this will be the boost to get the 2 cards (for 2 different people) mailed.
