Winner will be chosen on Sunday, February 8th so you have all week to hop through ! So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.

I heard about Pinterest a couple of years ago and I said NO....NOT GONNA DO IT! Having a full time job and a paper craft addiction....I didn't need anything else that required my time. Boy was I wrong! I love seeing what others have created and I have been so inspired by new products and techniques. So, 2 years later I have 99 boards and 12,784 pins! My mo jo doesn't have a chance at getting lost! There is ALWAYS something to try. 
I think shaker cards are so cute and really add an element of fun. I love the ocean so I chose this pin for my inspiration today. 
This card was a little time consuming but as with anything, the more you practice, the less you have to "think" about it so I can't wait to try another one!
