Cards and other projects

Happy monday to all! Hope everyone have a wonderful week. Today I want to share some of my cards and more altered projects.
All the cute images are from my friend Linda , thank you so much. The sentiment stamp is from my other friend Denise. Thank you so much!

My first crochet flower not bad, I'm so happy that I still remember how to crochet. I don't need to buy crochet flower, I just need to more practice.
My first time to do some heat embossing. I know it doesn't look good but it's my first time, again I need more practice.
Here are some flowers that I made from pattern papers, ribbons and buttons. I used to make the paper flowers when I was in elementary but we just used the construcction paper.
Angela's first day of school today. She's so excited and happy when she saw her friend from preschool. This photo taken in the front before she went to school.

Just want to share some more of my altered projects for Angela's school. Yes, I love to recycle! This is a cover from the box of paper copy. I covered it with my old scrap papers and added her name and some cut out flowers. This is one from the list of Angela's school supplies. She'll use it as a drawer under her table.
This is the inside. Thank you Denise, I've been using the papers that you gave me.
Here is a box from diaper. I covered with papers that my friend Denise gave me, then added flowers and her name. She'll use it for the cubby hole in her school.
This is the inside of the box.
Hope you like what I share with you today. I'm sorry this is supposed to be my post yesterday but I forgot to hit the publish because I was rushing to go out. Thank you and have a great day!

Your colouring is fantastic. :-) I love your paper flowers & your crochet flower is so pretty too. You are such a clever mom to make all those lovely things for Angela. Hope all went well on her 1st day.

Looks like you'll have lots & lots of lovely photos to scrap over the coming months. Take care. Gez.xx
