Weekend's Almost Over

Did you have a nice weekend??  Mine was busy.  We had a lacrosse game that was far away and spent a good portion of Saturday on the road.  I took my 3 older kids to see the Hunger Games movie.  They loved it!  I have read all 3 books and it followed pretty closely to the books.  The "games" were a bit rushed.  But all in all I liked the movie. Did any of you get to see the movie or have you read the books?? 

Today I spent a good portion of the day scrapping.  I did a layout and a card.  I can't show you either today since one is for a DT project and I haven't' taken a photo of the other one yet.  But that just gives you something to look forward to right??  lol

I saw the coolest thing today on Frosted Design.  Beverly showed that you can use a corner punch to make a edge designed circle kind of like what I'm getting when I use the new We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 punch.  I wanted to show it to you too.
First you start with a circle and a corner edge punch. 
Then just take your corner edge punch, turn it upside down so you can see what you are punching.  Punch evenly around the circle making sure to leave some of the paper at the top of the punch. 
It should look like this.  After punching all the way around the circle (the circle I started with was 10 3/4 inches) it should look something like this.
Isn't that cool.  I love how that opens so many new options for me. 

If you want to go watch the video you can see it HERE

And now I will leave you with a photo of my two littlest kids.  This photo is from a field trip they took recently to a local restaurant to make pizzas.   Thanks for stopping by...
