Busy, Busy, Busy! But Always Time For Favors!

Hi All,
Here we are almost to the end of June 2011.  So much has been happening around the ole homestead with the end of the school year and numerous home repair issues. Blogging and computer time have been put on the back burner for just a bit.  I have been working on some crafty goodness but just have not had the time to sit down and blog.  I did a large project for my "real" job that took up a lot of time and ink. No pics for that but I also have been having fun with more bakery boxes.  I JUST LOVE THIS BOX!  I have always used it for Rocher candy at the holidays and more recently at Easter for the mini eggs.  Now, I sized it to fit a perfect piece of Rosa's Fudge ... YUM! I just knew it would be perfect for this little treat.  I have the pictures to prove it.  I wanted to print my paper so I used DSA2 to print on the HP and SCAL with the Expression to cut them. The card stock was Staples brand index card stock. Here are the links for the others supplies
I purchased the Graduation Cap Box that I used for the topper from a wonderful artist that I stumbled upon. Here is the link:

You can buy great fudge for favor making here:
I love this fudge and have been buying for years!

I made these favors for a party I am attending next week.  I hope everyone enjoys the treats as much as I enjoyed making them.

Thanks for visiting and HAPPY GRADUATION EMMA!

Another Sign

                                                                                    Hi All,
This is the sign I saw
I sure have been busy the last couple of weeks.  So many chores around the house to do for spring clean up.  Add in work and some family time and the ole' craftspace has been dark!  So today I found some free time between laundry loads and made another sign.  I saw this in an online catalog and just loved it.  I again used some recycled chipboard and my friend Huey the VAIO to print the graphics.  I left out the & sign because I just didn't like how it looked.  I like how my version came out and best yet I save myself from another purchase.  I am having a lot of fun playing with ink and sanding the paper.  And the new HP large format printer is amazing.  I am using the new after market ink system and I think that the colors are even nicer than the HP ink. I hope you like my sign and give one a try.
Thanks for visiting,  Lysa
