The Flag Layout for THE CUTTING CAFE: Subtitle BAD MOM!

How fantastic is that huge tree?

Can you believe it was a little tiny tree that was part of a cutting file for a Halloween treat box?

I actually cut it out of cream colored cardstock but added a variety of inks and mists to make it painted up like this. It shimmers in real life! ;-)

Check it out at THE CUTTING CAFE. Regina has all kinds of fun things over there.

I have made those milk carton treat boxes before, check them out here. They are also a blast!

I have also had bottle caps on my brain for the past couple of days.

See the latest challenge up over at Scrap For Help involves bottle caps. I LOVE these Angry Orchard Hard Cider tops and thought they fit well with my page on climbing our apple tree.

Here is a close up of my accordion bloom bottle cap flower. Loved pairing those up together and then adding those pearls on a wire I just found recently at the local flower shop. SO pretty.

See, this girl can still CLIMB the tree, however I was glad for some help coming down. Hence the "Service Please Sign" I was challenged to use on a scrapbook page that was acquired recently during a hotel stay.

See the kids were playing capture the flag for Luke's 11th Birthday. Lexi was recruited for playing to make the teams even. She also runs fast. ;-)

She was a good sport, even tackling a pine tree to get a flag. She was less of a good sport when I waited until no one was paying attention and captured the flag that was tied at the top of one of our apple trees. Since it was her idea, she was a bit miffed.

I didn't have a chance to get down before she pulled my boots off my feet, the meanie!

One last side view of my page!

Hope your Monday is FANTASTIC! ;-)
