Great storage cart from Costco

This is a great little cart that I picked up from Costco the other day.
It's 10 1/4" wide by 14" long and is great for everything from the smaller punches to all sorts of embellishments. The drawers slide right out and can be carried to your work surface,
which was really handy for me. 
I loved this cart so much I went back a couple of days later and bought 2 more!!
(It was only $28 Cdn too!) 
Don't mind my labelling system, I hope to "pretty it up" before too long. LOL.

Me and My Dad

The May challenge at Scrap That! was to mist the background on a LO. 
It was a huge amount of fun and a totally new experience for me.  I love misting!  Who'd a thunk it.  I misted pretty heavily with Perfect Pearls blue smoke and it was running all over the place.  Usually this would have driven me crazy but I discovered it was wonderful.  The more it ran, the prettier it got!  So fun. 
Once I got going I couldn't stop.  I sprayed chipboard with Tattered Angels olive vine mist and it was so pretty.  I love, love, love that shade of green.  After I was done spraying the chipboard, I patted a piece of matte paper down on the leftover ink and got a gorgeous piece of green paper to mat the word "love" with and still have a nice sized piece left to use in a future project!  
The cog frame is from Dusty Attic and I altered it using a tutorial  from Swirlydoos called: Vintage Metal Look.  Isn't it gorgeous?  I love that technique.  I highly recommend taking a look at the tutorials on Swirlydoos, they are so clear and explicit. 
Tip:  When working with a glue gun, if your glue hardens before you can place the item on your layout, use your embossing heat tool to re-soften.  It works like a charm!
Oh and by the way, if you're interested in doing the challenge at Scrap That!  It's on until the 17th, so you've still got time! http://www.scrapthat.ca/,
This picture is of my son and grandson taking a walk through the Calgary Zoo in March this year.
This is a closeup of the DA cog frame to show you how pretty it is.  The flower embellishment is made by Kay.  I bought it from her etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/kaylori77.  She does beautiful work and the bead flowers just sparkle.

A couple of views of that beautiful TA olive vine green.  It has a pretty gold shimmer to it.    So pretty.  I lightly inked the edges with Tsukineko Walnut Ink.
Thanks for looking.  I hope you're having a great day today!
