#ShareACoke -- featuring Chic Tags :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a layout I made for the latest sketch challenge at Chic Tags :) 


I used Chic Tags "Cloud 9" collection on my page :) 



Funny story about my layout .... so on Saturday, I had printed 4 photos out that I wanted to use on a layout ....

I didn't get a chance to make the page on Saturday, because of errands etc :) 

So on Sunday, with the photos still sitting on my desk uncut ... I start to visit my fave blogs -- and I come to Chic Tags -- and lo and behold they have posted their sketch on Sunday morning ... and the sketch called for FOUR PHOTOS ... which is EXACTLY how many photos I had printed on Saturday!!! SCORE :) 

So off to my page :) 

I am sure most of you have seen the BEST.MARKETING.CAMPAIGN.EVER.  -- for reals ... COKE has nailed it with this marketing campaign -- having NAMES on their bottles!!!! Who doesn't want to see their on a Coke bottle?!?!? :)  

We never buy Coke bottles --- but when we were out grocery shopping and we saw Brookie's name on a Diet Coke ... how could we resist!??!?! :)

Here is my page :) 








Now ... since I mentioned above that we don't buy Coke by the bottle -- you are probably wondering where I got all these Coke labels???  

If you remember, Brookie's school participates with Waste Management for a nationwide recycling contest (Brookie won Top Recycler last year!) ... so on a DAILY basis, my co-workers bring their empty water bottles, soda bottles and soda cans to my desk for me to add to the recycling contest (seriously I come home with SEVERAL bags filled DAILY of bottles and cans!!!) 

-- so when my friends bring their Coke bottles to my desk, I have been checking them out, and I grabbed these labels for future ideas -- which as you see, I added to my page :) 




The journaling which is tucked behind the photos :) 

 
 

And here is their sketch --

Sew Happy -- featuring Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone! :) 

I wanted to share our latest challenge at LESSology!!!! Sew lovely!!!


The challenge goes like this ..... Incorporate elements that have to do with sewing...thread, scissors, needles, cloth...etc

 
I was recently at an antique store and found this Wine collection box?? -- Wine box for a collection??  ***Edited to add --- thanks for letting me know that it's a WHISKEY BOX Cindy! Appreciate it!! :) ******* 
(hmmmm ... not sure how to say that -- I don't drink, so I am not sure what this box would be officially called! LOL!) ... anyhoo -- it's a wooden box, with a glass top -- and I picked it up for $10.00 :)


At first I thought, what am I going to do with this??? And then it hit me!!! I have been struggling lately with my spools of sewing threads -- because I have another BAD habit at the antique stores I frequent ... when I see a bag full of sewing spool threads ... I BUY THEM!!! Because let's face it ... thread is NOT cheap at the big box stores ...so when I see a bag full of spools at the antique store for $3.00 I grab them!! :) 

So here is what I had  ---

a small Rubbermaid box filled to the brim with my threads :)



And here is the wine box I bought from the antique store :) 





I was going to paint it PINK (yes, I am OBSESSED with PINK! LOL!!!) .... but the wood was in such good shape, I decided not to touch the finish :) 



And here is what I made with it using Bella Blvd.'s Family Forever collection and some Maya Road chipboard pieces :) 








And here is the inside of the box ... the new HOME for all my sewing goodies :) 





Can't wait to see what you create for this challenge!! :)


Our prize for this challenge is -- Heidi Swapp's  Mixed Company paper collection :)
