Markers - Great Idea

I was perusing the blogs and checking my email this morning and I had received an email from one of my favorite stamp websites.... Purple Onion Designs. I checked out their blog and saw this great idea for making color swatches for all of your markers. Her example was done with Copic Markers, but you could do it with I think, any markers. She first used a tag punch, then took each one of her makers and three lines of colors. The first line is one layer of color, the second line is two layers and the third line is three layers which allows you to be able to see the shades of the colors. She also wrote the name of the marker along with any number that is associated with that color. Once she was done, she hung all of these tags on a book ring. This allows you to be able to find that exact color you need to go with the cardstock and B&T paper. It will take some work, but this is exactly what I'm going to do.

1 Box of Kleenex - $ 1.29
1 Adorable Dog - $ 350.00
Putting these two together........PRICELESS
I just couldn't resist this. I went looking for our dog "Bear" today. He's like a little kid. You've got to know where he is at, at all times. Well today when I found him, I definitely laughed at this one. I mean..... really laughed. I found him downstairs with this on his head. He was moving back and forth like Ray Charles. I just couldn't resist..... Had to take a picture of this........ It was the perfect "candid" moment.

Those Wonderful Acrylic Albums

Just recently my friend came to visit and while she was here, we were able to sit and make this awesome acrylic album. All the product we used is from CTMH. We used the new xmas card kit and we still had enough left over to make 1 of each of the 4 different cards from the kit. This was so fun to make and what a treat it was to sit and play. This would make a great gift for someone. They just have to attach the pictures.
