Anything But a Card...

Hello, hello, hello!  Welcome to the very first EVER Anything But a Card Challenge! WHhoop whooop!  While perusing facebook one day I saw a post from Jessica Griffin about a new venture she was starting... it was about making fun and NON CARD projects with our digis!  What a cool idea...sometimes, ok lately, I am quite tired of making card, after card, after card!  SO! I quickly responded to her about being part of the DT!  I SOOO wanted in!  

Here I am part of the new awesome blog Anything But A Card!

We have one super DT!  So many different variety of crafters! We are going to blow your socks off!  Whoop whoop!  Ok so here we go my first project for Anything But A Card...

Using my Jack and Jill image, I got the crazy idea of creating a snack tray!  I am constantly spilling or smudging my projects with water, drinks, and snackie items on my stuff!  So, I thought I could totally make a tray to place my snakie items and drink while I craft!  Maybe then I will eliminate a few spills and oopses!  Some, not all that would be impossible, especially with a toddler!

Here's a shot of the tray.  All papers are from Graphic 45 Happy Haunting.  The image as I mentioned is mine and can be found at Simply B here.

Close up of my colored image.

A close up of the image and the embellishments surrounding it.  The hand is from the Happy Haunting Cricut Cartridge.  The Bottle caps can be found at Simply B, and the swirls are Prima Marketing.  The large clock die is Tim Holtz.

This large Bottle cap will be coated with Diamond Glaze creating a seal and it is where I will be able to put my little snacks on like crackers or cheese and it won't hinder the paper.  I will be able to just wipe it clean too!  Whooohooo!  The spider is from a confetti pack I bought some Halloweens ago.

This one is just for fun, my daughter Rio wanted to help and so I let her... ummm I think she forgot that there was ink all over her hands and started scratching her face!  How old are we Rio?  LOL!!

I hope you liked my project for today!  Don't forget to check out the new challenge blog and participate in the first challenge for a chance to win a gift certificate to Simply B Stamps of $25! 

Off you go to check out the rest of the DTs creations at  Anything But A Card!
