Mouse trap

Here is another one of our short and sweet swaps.. What can you do with a mouse trap?  I made mine so that you could add a note or picture to the bottom of the trap plus use the snap part of the trap to hold another one.  This is done with Graphic 45 papers which is favorite paper to use and these are a great way to use up little pieces of scrap paper.

Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Chasing the blues away

Here are pictures of a swap I recently did on the CMB that was the theme of chasing the winter blues away. As most people know I love snowmen and so I was really lucky to get a partner that also loves them.  So this swap was all about snowmen.  The spool is done with the TH winter wonderland snowman, the wooden blocks are done on both sides so after the winter season you can still use them and not have to store them and the canvas has a wonderful snowman paper that I love. Yes my dh took the pictures for me and put the live laugh love blocks in the wrong order..LOL which I did not notice until I had already boxed the swap up for mailing..

Thanks for looking and please leave a comment.
