Colors of Autumn is the current theme at Pattie's Creations Challenge. I love this image titled 'Allie Hiding in Leaves', it just makes me smile! Sometimes you just want to make a quick and easy craft creation. I have a computer program called "Microsoft Picture It, Photo Premium 9" (it may be an older version) that has all kinds of craft projects to create and then print out. Once it was printed out, I added 4 Autumn colored glitter leaves, just to add that little extra something. Super EASY!

Recycled Project

Before and After Q-Tip Holder
Our theme at Pattie's Creations Challenge #98 is "Altered or Recycled". I have a Vanity table in my bedroom and thought this holder would look good on it!
Craft Details Very easy! I created the plaid paper digitally in Corel. I added another layer of the image "Morning Glory Vine" from Pattie's Creations. I added a white outer glow to the image and composed it onto the plaid background. That's it! I cut the size I needed and adhered to the container after the original label was removed.

That's it, anything but a card is the theme at Pattie's Creations Challenge #92. I had some extra apothecary jars hanging around, so I filled it with my Mini Maple Walnut Chocolate Chip Biscotti! What's great about this, it's Low Carb and Sugar-Free! I brought some to a Kentucky Derby Party at our nephew and niece's house, and it went over really big! I'm thrilled when a recipe of mine that fits my lifestyle, works for 'regular' people. What I mean is they don't follow a low carb lifestyle.
Creation Details - designer paper for the band around the jar - designer paper die-cut with scalloped circle - Image 'Chocolate Chip Cookie Jar' also die-cut with scalloped circle

I'm pleased with how this card came out. I didn't know which size I wanted to go with, and ended up making a 5 by 7 card. Today's theme at Pattie's Creations Challenge #91 is Mother's Day.
