2 Winners, Shabby Layout, Tag and Card, Bird Bath Table Re-do

Hi Everyone,  

We have winners for our August Linky Party and the Giveaway, plus some new samples and links to share.  We had 21 entries in the Linky Party and Cynthia Olheiser was the lucky winner and Debbie Kaste won our Giveaway for Born to Fly Stamp Set, Digital Set, 4 sheets of freezer paper and of printable canvas.  Congrats to all the other fabulous entries who won a $6.00 gift card.

You may have seen the cute cookie box and card that Cammie posted in the Linky Party but did you see her faux tattoo she added to her photo digitally afterwards.  It fooled me and got me thinking about the Temporary Tattoo Transfer Sheets from Silhouette. You could take a colored image (so if Cammie colored this digital stamp) and print it on the tattoo paper.

I came back to add this  wonderful layout by DT Member Sheila Rumney that she posted today of her pretty daughter  as she gets ready to head off to college next week. Sheila used our 99 cent Double Classic Damask Printable Paper and the watch, pin and stud are from CD 1 Creating With Vintage Typography.

DT Member Kathy Clement created a really cool vintage beach tag using the bathing beauties from our Calendar Scraps and the cracked glass technique and I love all the elements she added.  She has all the details and more photos here.

 Here's a pretty card by DT Member Rebekah Fairies who used a frame from our Halloween CD with some printable papers from CD #1 and the sentiment stamp from is from our Best Buds Mini Stamp Set.

I thought I would share one of my little DIY make-overs that was free and fast. We spotted this metal birdbath along side the road on garbage day and I didn't need another birdbath but I thought it would make a great small table. I painted it cream and antiqued it with a brown glaze I had, added some glass stones and a friend has a glass place and cut us a top.  Just be sure to get the edges brushed smooth.

It fits between the chair and wall perfectly in our living room

I also started a couple of new Pintrest Boards.  One with great DIY Creative Ideas by other people like these beautiful candle torch poles I saw that inspired me to collect glass pieces to make 3 for a wedding next year.

I'm also really into healthy recipes and have found so many great ones on the internet I wanted to share so I started a Yummy & Healthy Board.

 We finally got some rain but I heard some bad weather reports across the USA with flooding in many spots. I'm sending sunshine wishes to all!

 Until next time

Wishing you joy and creativity

Sandy,the bird bath table is so sweet. I've been laughing so hard that you included my tat in the newsletter. This weekend I received my recent Silhouette order including tattoo paper, so I'll be sure to post my next temporary tattoo. I'm off now to check out the glass torch poles.
