So Off The Page

My big brother just bought his first house and he gets the keys this week. I am so proud of him. He will only be 45 minutes away now, he was over 2 hours before. I wanted to make him a little decoration for his entryway, nothing to girly! I thought Collage Press, Knave of Hearts would do the trick. The cloud paper is one of my most favorite pieces of paper ever. It reminds me of the ceiling in the Sistine Chapel. Gorgeous. The *C* is for his last name. Hey ladies, he is single!
Hey Lexie, there is our new border punch!

The fun wooden shaped piece was made by Kim Hesson, she creates lovely wooden shapes to use in crafting. This was my last piece that I bought from her. The plaque with the glass knob is just a piece that I was lucky to find for just $2. I knew I would figure out something someday! The keyholes are from Tim Holtz. Letter C was sprayed with Maya Rd mist.

Can anyone spot the Maya Road in the photo below?

Can you see it now? The blue butterflies and bluebirds are Maya Road trinkets! Yep, I thought they would be perfect for these bracelets that I made.

This one has a long way to go, my best British friend just had a birthday so I need to get it in the mail asap. I put one blue bead and one pink bead, for her Oliver and Connie.

Don't forget to come on by tomorrow to see all the stuff you need to have from the Freehand Scraps kit!
