but I am going to get this post in today or bust!
My monthly *aRt*pArTy!! swap last month was to alter a cigar/pencil box.
Due to summer vacations, we were but a small group,
but had so much fun swapping boxes, sipping Skinny Margaritas
and eating Mexican fare at our potluck!
I made this little box:
I used Tim Holtz's "Ornamental" die with a 4x6" patterned cardstock to make the frame. Then glued butterflies upon butterflies to give it more dimension.

And Ginger's Wizard of OZ theme was just so fun and cute!
Since next week marks the end of summer with a return to school,
I tought I'd share a couple of my favorite vintage School pix:
