Make and Take

One of the fun things about CKC (other than shopping and taking classes and the crops) is that they have tons of "make and takes".

If you haven't gone to CKC or another convention you might not know what "make and takes" are. (probably most of you do)

"Make and takes" are basically just what they sound like, a paper craft project that you can either do at the sales booth for free or a small fee and then take it with you.

One of my crafty projects I am showing here today is a "make and take" project that I did in between classes last Friday.

Most of the pieces were already cut and ready to go. But I did fussy cut the flowers.

I came home and got a little carried away adding bling, glitter and pearls. I also put that sweet journaling tag on there and did my journaling. I think it is Sassafras and Co. but I'm not for sure.

And I had those fun K & Co. Wild Saffron chipboard alphas in my stash.

The girl at the booth was super fun and funny and we really had a ball sitting there, talking to her and doing this layout.

We did a couple more "make and takes". One was at the Tattered Angels booth. It was really mostly just playing around with their new product (for free). And the other one was so super cute that I ended up buying four more of the kits to take home and make!

They were cocoa packet holders. The sweet snowman is so adorable. I thought they would be great projects for my kids to make for their teachers for Christmas. What do you think??

It has been fun getting the happy emails from my blog candy winners. I can't believe I still have 2 that haven't replied yet.... There is hope for you all

I have had a hard day trying to get my computer to work. I am hoping that I get to actually post this. (I have been trying to post this for an hour if you finally see it - just know that I am thrilled it finally worked!)
