I apologise for the delay in some of these being posted, my fault totally, but with the move and lost of internet for 9 days I am abit behind.  Melissa assures me the remainder will be posted next week

Want a different idea for using the bottlecaps?  Well this took me 30 minutes to make (excluding the drying of the various mediums)

I love this Prima Pastiche Heartstrings but could never find the right style of photos to go with it so now I get to enjoy the paper always by using it for my "Remember to order" clipboard ... I have paper everywhere with requests from customers to order in products ... so now they all have their own special spot until I ordered them.  The bits of paper will just slip under the paper clips

It is made from a Pizza Box, which I covered with the pretty paper.  I used another piece of pizza box, just a little larger for the backing (to make it more sturdy) and the edges have been painted with Aged Mahogany Distress Crackle Paint

Piece from the pattern paper covered with Inkssentials Crackle Accent and a Tim Holtz Game Spinner

the other bottle caps have been dressed up with our flower embellishments

I could certainly dress this up a lot more, but I decided to make it while typing up the newsletter today, so it had to be quick before the sun disappeared on me and lost the lighting for the photos

Hope you are all having an enjoyable and safe long weekend
