Oh, my GORGEOUS!!! Those shadowboxes are amazing!!! So pretty!

loir oles

I am so glad you liked the silver bella article and I excited to see you there again. Oh, ya and do a little shopping.


Karla, your pictures are ginormous...did you do something different to get them so big? i am on a different laptop than the one i usually use, maybe that is why...pics do look bigger on this one...i am totally dying over those shadowboxes...they are all totally gorgeous...i love the shape of them, what pretty little things they are...Vicki was so sweet to share with all of you...what a spectacular craft day!!!

Love all the tags! They look so pretty just sitting in a pile there! And I'm glad to hear someone else is less productive with a little one around, I usually craft after bedtime because my daughter LOVES to help me and her creations tend to take over the time and supplies ;)


How beautiful!!!

KARLA, every time I come here, I get dizzy with gorgeousness, lol! You make the prettiest things and I always get so happy when I see you have a new post! I love everything.That jelly bean dispenser is so pretty too! And lasagna?? YUMMERS! On of my favorite foods. I am glad you had so much fun with friend, You are all amazing!
Love and hugs,


I LOVE VICKI! She sent me a few of the new die cuts to play with too. She & I always get together for dinner when she comes to town for the Scrapbook Convention in June. She is sooooooooooo talented & such a SWEET person. Looks like your group had a ball with this project & dinner sounded yummy until you got the the jelly beans (yuck that is just not my bag! Now M&M's wouldn't be safe anywhere near me) I love the name Sugar Wings. How adorable! And for the thought on too many tags? Can there be too many? Have a wonderful day. Charlene

I love looking at your blog and I always look forward to new posts. Sugarwings is adorable and lucky to have you as a grandmother. I love your little path with hidden treasures in the woods. Jackie from Quebec, Canada


The shadowboxes are gorgeous and I want to get in on winning one for sure....I envy you getting to craft and have fun with friends....I have lived here in Fl for little over 5 years now and still do not have any crafting friends.....I guess since I don't get out much except by myself, I just don't get to meet crafty people....oh well, that is why I love following your blog and others. I can ohhhh and awwww over all of your projects.....lol..


Sounds like such a fun day -- days, really! And boy, were you all productive! Everything is just beautiful, Karla!


Wow what pretty tags and I love those shadow boxes Vickie sent! They turned out so sweet!!

I am having a giveaway at my place- would love for you to come sign up!!

Google connect must be something different then what I thought I had joined your blog on- it came up that I was not part of it so- now I am! Is is better or how is it different then the follower list? I am so dumb about some of this stuff!

Wish I lived closer so I could join in on those wonderful crafting days you have!

Karla amor, what beautiful treasures you all made, I bet lunch was delish! I asked Beth what a cuttle bug was..never heard of it :) I love the beautiful tags you made with it though :) You always do the prettiest giveaways :) Have a great week! Besos, Rose

I just found out Beth is coming to So Cal with you too :) You'll be in my old neighborhood, about 20 min from me...so close :)

Beth Leintz

The more I look at all the shadow box frames, the more I like them. This group project turned out as nice as the last one (Shawn's baby book).


Isn't it great to get together with friends for a day of complete enjoyment ! ! ! !



How I wish I had crafty friends like yours! Always looks like you have such a good time! Vicki was wonderful to share her stash and I would love to try to make a shadowbox as pretty as your pictures! Count me in!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth

I would love to live near blogging/crafty friends! How fun...these tags are gorgeous as are Vicki's shadow boxes, that everyone added their spin to.
A lot of potential for greatness, using all these fine bits n' bobs you have!

Tag book is beautiful! Everything is lovely~


Hi Karla, you are so funny with your "bribes" to get new friends, haha! Somehow, I don't think YOU would ever have a problem with not having enough friends!!! Love all the pretties you are offering! Love all the pretty tags you are making, too! I have a question...when you make your tags, do you use any kind of paper or chipboard on the backs to make them sturdier? Thanks ahead of time for any tips! Glad you are having fun in your studio!
Happy Spring (((hugs)))

Lovely photography and site! I'm so happy that I found it and have several friends that will love it too. Holley

Mitzi Curi

Your snippers and gluers sure churn out some awesome stuff! I'm really intrigued by Beth's Cuttlebug......I actually read about it on her blog and ran right over to Michael's to buy one, but chickened out. Now I'm going to have to re-think that. I'd love to make tags of all different sizes!


WOW! You knocked my little cotton socks right off!! These are amazing and look like such fun to make. I'm going to have to order the kit. I just love these!!!! Have a great day - Kathy


Those little shadowboxes are great! I will have to go peek at her blog...does she sell them? Have a great thursday sweet Karla! karen...

Your tag book turned out beautifully. Your craft group sounds like a wonderful way to pass the day...

Cami @ Creating Myself

My art group always works on lone projects too but I bet it was fun to do a group thing. I'm gonna suggest that @ our next meet, next week. Your tags are beautiful!


Four giveaways? I don't know if I can handle the excitement!!

Ruth Graham

So nice to be able to have wonderful crafty friends close enough to get together.

Just love the shadowboxes! So beautiful!

Happy Crafting..... Ruth


Karla, What a nice group of friends you have for crafting days. The shadowboxes are so great!


ooooooh, to put those tags in a bowl and every once in awhile sit down and just run your fingers through them...sit a spell and play matchy matchy with them! happy first day of April Karla.


Beautiful fun items, I would love to win! Thanks for the oppurtunity.

Freda Butler

When I opened this post and saw them I fell in love. They are wonderful. Could I ever be this lucky?
