My First Craft Fair!!

Hello, everyone! A while back my husband asked me to make some pretty envelopes for the tellers at our bank, something to put cancelled checks in that they could hang in their station. I ended up making a bunch out of the leftovers of my Summer Days Scrappin' Kit, and I figured every teller needs their own pen, so I also made matching beaded pens for each. Well, I didn't think to snap a picture before he took them to the bank, but he said they all loved them and thought they were so cute! Well, one of the ladies is on the PTA at her daughter's school, which is having a craft fair in March, and she asked me if I would like to have a table! Of course I would!! I've been trying to find something like that, so I said I'd love to. Well, here is the first of hopefully many items I'll be busy making. I bought unfinished frames from Michael's and spiffed them up with remnants of some Simply Scrappin' Kits.



I added some coordinating ribbon and brads to each. I really like how they turned out. This one is from the boy kit.



This is using a retired Sell-a-Bration kit from a few years ago. Aren't the colors just beautiful?


Well, that's all I have time for now. I have to run and take lunch to Sam and the guys who are setting another house today. If you'd like more info on that, click here . See you later!!
