The Littlest Things You Do...

Hello and welcome back you lovely crafters! 
I hope this finds you all hanging in there and ready to get crafty because we've got another linky party opening up at the ever wonderful and talented
But I'll be honest, every single entry just blows my mind and so actually, you all make my Monday to Sunday just fantastic.
Here's a little diddy I made for your inspiration and it's using the very special image from our sponsor Digi Doodle Shop entitled A Drink of Water.

Okay, now that I've shown you mine, you show me yours!
Head on over to
and make our week!

These are only a few of the amazing pictures from her fantastic back to school basket for a teacher!!!
See those little apples up top? I've seen them done as pumpkins, but never thought to make them smaller for apples.  Excellent creativity Lori!
( I had to show this one off too...amazing textures and resources)
This is actually an altered box! The use of foil, inks, silicone, silver leaf and more!
I'm in awe of the textures and the layering and the overall appearance of this project.  Another entry of fabulous creativity!
