No layouts today...

Some fun "non-layout" creations:

My first ever ATC!!

The creative process took a lot longer than I expected, but I had heaps of fun with them. I used acetate, Mod Podge and napkins for the base, and loved the result.

I'm entering my ATC in the following challenges:
# Cute Card Thursday ~ Challenge 86 ~ Glitter me silly
# Whimsy Stamps ~ Challenge 28 ~ Not a card

At the Scrap Boutique retreat, Liz taught us how to make this amazing card caddy:

Mine doesn't look quite as amazing as Miss Lizzie's sample but considering I don't "do" off-the-page, I was thrilled with my finished project.  I also made six mini-cards to make a gift set for my mother-in-law for Christmas.

Edited to add:
