Dorothy Tags, bags and Classes- Oh My!

So for the last few weeks I have been working on a Grab bag swap of all things Krafty.  I had to make up 14 grab bags of goodies to for a Swap with friends thru Memoryworks.  Here is a picture of my bags before packaging and mailing.

I can't wait to see what I get back in the mail.  I will post a picture of all my goodies when I receive them mid-September.

I have also been working on these:

I made these for the Dorothy Tag Book Swap at Karla's Cottage.  Her blog is beautiful and has lots of inspiration.  There are still openings for this swap.  I had to make 6 tags based on the 1936 movie and the book Wizard of Oz.  It was a lot of fun making these.  Visit here to see all the tags made so far and posted to the Flicker gallery.

Creative Keepsake Convention was here in VA. Beach for the weekend so yesterday I went and took 3 classes and got tons of inspiration.  My first class was SEI- Making Ordinary - Extraordinary.  We used the Moravia line to make an Envelope Mini Album. This paper line is beautiful.

When I finish my album I will post pictures.  The next class I took was designed by none other than Ali Edwards and was taught by Technique Tuesday. (Love there stuff! I won Ali Edwards stamp set Dad and bought Message in a Banner stamp set)

The last class I took was my favorite because I got to meet Kelly Purkey.  What a wonderful person.  You can find her here.  She taught Sanding Embossing and Dies- Oh My!

The next two pictures from Quick Quotes and I signed up for there monthly kit club and I received the stuff to make these:

Well that is it for tonight, I will have more to show you in the next few day along with a new adventure that I will be going on.  Can't wait to tell you more about it on Wednesday or Thursday. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Where I have been-

        I have been enjoying the summer here at home and spending it with my family.  I haven't had any kids to watch this summer so it has been nice to get things done around the house.  Of course there are all the appointments and places the kids want to go so I have been very busy.
        Craft wise I have been cleaning up my craft room and also following a tutorial by Christine Middlecamp that you can find here.  I enjoyed the process of this since each one is a little piece of art.

         Last week my youngest and I went to No. VA to spent the week with my parents.  While we were there we went into Georgetown to the Shop that DC Cupcakes on TLC is filmed and got some cupcakes.  They were delicious a little piece of heaven in a paper liner.  The line was down the block but worth the wait in 90 degree heat.

The flavors that we liked best were Red Velvet, Pumpkin Spice and Key Lime.  The Coconut wasn't bad either.  Well that is it for now, I will be back to post about a few things I am participating in this month that are exciting to me. 

Have a great week!
