Oh, How I LOVE Generous Blogs

Since I have been blogging, I have met some of the most generous, kind, giving and cheerful people you could ever hope to meet.  From personal blogs and company blogs to challenge blogs and beyond - it has been SUCH a tremendous blessing to get a peek into the lives of so many wonderful people.  One of these special people is Cath Edvalson, Trends Editor for Paper Crafts Magazine.  Although I have never met Cath personally, I have had the honor of being allowed to glimpse into her generous heart through her lovely blog at:  www.moxiefabworld.com where you can learn about the newest issues of the magazines, get inspiration, enter challenges and give-aways, and SO much more.  If you have never visited this Moxie Fabulous blog, please take the time this week to check it out.  You WON'T be disappointed.

I have decided to enter TWO of the current challenges at Moxie Fab World.  They are both based on a photo inspiration.  I will post the photo inspiration, then my entry, followed by the link(s) so that you can check them out, and even enter them if you should so choose.

I used October Afternoon products on this project.  I took a glassine bag and decorated it with their adorable papers and embellishments.  I will use this little treat bag to fill with goodies for one of the special children in my life.  It's always nice to have a special little treat to give away.

My Second Entry:

I used an inexpensive rub-on set from Michaels, a Sizzix die, some Recollections flowers, sewing around the edges, Tim Holtz ink, a Making Memories journaling page, Prima lace and a snippet of October Afternoon patterned paper.

Again, I hope you will check out this moxie fabulous fun blog.  There is SO much from which to gain inspiration.  Thank you, Cath, from the bottom of my heart for giving us such a fun place to visit.  I can never get enough.

Thank you all for stopping by, and for your kind comments.  I cherish all of you as well, and look forward to visiting your blogs to see what you've each been creating this week.  Have a blessed day.

My Cup Runneth Over,

Karen
