I'm not really lost

WOW - just looked at the date on my last post.  I know it's been a while, but didn't think it was that long!!!   I've been busy and my poor craft room has missed me.  I've been to Las Vegas, San Diego, Seattle, Maine & New York and back to San Diego & New York since then along with a Caribbean Cruise a couple of weeks ago.  AND - not done yet - back to NYC for our early Christmas with the kids the beginning of Dec.  YIKES!!!

Anyway - have a few things to post in the CAS mode to get back into the swing.

To start, here are a couple of Christmas ornaments and/or package decorations that I did last week.

This one is a take on the 2012 SU Christmas catalog cover... the center is a silk poinsettia.

Here's take 2 - this one was using glimmer cardstock from Recollections and a Prima flower for the center that's sprayed with shimmer mist and the edges are dredged in Sparkling Snow glitter.

These ornaments were made using the Spellbinder's Ornament Dies from a couple of years back - one with regular cardstock and the other with glimmer cardstock... they're fun and easy to make.  The tops are buttons from SU.
Hope you enjoyed these.
Back soon - really!!!
ps...  here's a quick overview of a teeny bit of my summer
