Quickest Treat Bags Ever!!! - 3D Wednesday with My Creative Time

Hello my friends and Welcome!!
Today I decided to join in on 3D Wednesday over at My Creative Time.  I made some super quick treat bags using "All Around Everything" and "All Around Everything Accessories" stamp sets.  I came across some very cute snap bags and I wanted to dress them up a bit.  I added Emma's Scallop and Stitched Circle die cuts.

I filled the bags with a few kisses and popped the scallops on with a tiny clothespins.  Cute little gifts finished in a snap!
 Bags  -  Dollar Tree
Scoot 6x6 Paper Pad, Echo Park  -  Liz's Paper Loft Boutique
Love Me 6x6 Paper Pad  -  My Mind's Eye
Mini Clothespins  -  Recollections
This little project made me smile today, I hope it does the same for you!  Go on over and Check out the rest of the 3D projects on Emma's blog.  I hope you enjoy your day, thanks for stopping by!
Love and Hugs,

Sleigh Riding - Scrapping the Little Things

Good Morning my blog friends!  I am so happy to be back posting again.  I feel like I can finally breathe after the holidays!  I hope you all enjoyed your holiday season!  I have to say my season was a bit busier than usual with a lot of family things going on!  My poor hubby injured his back and the day after Christmas we were in the emergency room :( .  He is much better now and on the mend, thank goodness!
Ok, for todays Scrapping the Little Things with My Creative Time I did a "Project Life type" page using some photo sleeves from We R memory keepers I found at Michaels.  I like the idea that I can go to a store close to me and pick up something I need without waiting for shipping.

This year during Christmas week we got a little bit of snow.  We took the twins to a local park.  The snow was not deep but just enough to sleigh ride before the sun melted it!

I took the top picture without the photo sleeve because I haven't gotten the knack of photographing them without a glare.

I layered patterned paper over chipboard to make the letters a bit thicker.

A big thank you to my hubby!  Even though he was hurting he came to the park with us and even made it up the hill on crutches!!!

Thank you for visiting me!  Please go see what the design team has over for you at My Creative Time.  Have a wonderful day (especially if you are off for the holiday)!!!

Love and Hugs,
