I'm stoked

Well, I think I might paint my tackle box..but I got everything from my toolbox in my tacklebox plus some!!!!!!!

found a solution

Well I was using a craftsman tool box, I included pics above, but all my stuff was losted in chaos. Well my journey began when I asked hubby about my dads tackle box. I knew it was somewhere in our storage loft. Well hubby found this box and I cleaned it out. Saved myself $30

THis pic is of the top area of the box

Trying something new... Circles

I don't scrapbook with circles, so I thought I would give it a try and I actually like it. DCWV is the paper maker and chipboard. Hobby lobby flowers and rhinestones. Ribbon? I think walmart??? Haven't been real productive today, I had to make 700 3" circles for Vaction Bible School, so far I have about 500 done since yesterday evening. So... I wanted to tak e a break and get more layouts done.
