Magical Monday - Let's Go Green

I wanted to thank anyone who took the time to say a prayer for Patrick the 22 year old young man that needed a liver transplant. He was blessed with a new liver early Friday morning and is in recovery! I was so grateful to hear such wonderful news for him. Although now I will be praying that his body continues to accept his new liver and the family that had to loose someone they loved in order to give such a gift.

Now, as far as another Magical Monday over at Paper Cupcakes. This week over at the Paper Cupcake's Challenge Blog the challenge is brought to us by Jennifer Bliss brings us our challenge. She wanted us to go Green. So, what does that mean? She wanted us to either make a card/project with greens/neutrals and/or reusing/recycling items in your project. I decided to recycle a plastic container that I bought candy in last year for Christmas. I divided the candy up and had these containers left over. I knew I wanted to reuse them and alter them, but then again they sat there since last Christmas. I think when you are creative you can also become somewhat a pack rat as well. So, I decided that I would alter one; I had two. I thought I would do a Christmas theme, this way I could fill it up with something come Christmas and give it as a teacher gift or have something on hand to give away. I used the image "Merry Moose-mas" by Paper Cupcakes. I added a little clip art Christmas tree and a border that come from Print Shop. I added the sentiment by computer. Added a trim to the top and bottom. I really wanted to use little brown pom-poms around the bottom, but I didn't have any, which I thought I did. So, I went with this trim. I kept it kind of simple in case I decided to give it to a male.

Well, another busy weekend and to be honest, our weekends just seem to be too full. When soccer is over then Speech kicks in and that is an all day kind of thing happening 2-3 weekends a month. So, if you stopped by thanks again, someday soon I hope to get around to blogs I use to love to visit, but my time just seems to be gone and too much to get accomplished in the real world. So, have a lovely week and it is always nice to read a note from someone that took the time to leave one. Have a great week!
