Somebody stop me! =)

I really need help! I can't stop creating shaped things, cards for example. Don't get me wrong, I love shaped things, but I think I'm much too addicted. =)

Last week when the challenge at Card-a-licious was to create a shaped card, I made 2 and couldn't decide which one to use for the challenge. Well, I decided to go with the Halloween one, since it was right before the holiday. So here is another one I made with a crown shape and used the same process in Photoshop with the crown shape instead of the moon.
Everything here is Melissa Frances from the Little Guy kit: paper, stickers, ribbon, die cuts and rub ons are MF as well. Pearl gems and twine are from the craft supply.

The little box is actually a gift card box that you would get at Barnes and Noble. For some reason I had some of these lying around from last year and thought it would be a neat idea for a baby gift, to wrap up a baby gift card in the box with these cute little guy papers. Very easy project!

Speaking of little boys (or boys in general)...I have a kit that I would love to give away to one of my blog readers. It is a Little Yellow Bicycle Kit called "Zach's Life" that has a neat fold-out chipboard album, 12 papers, 6 fabric borders, chipboard alphabet, stickers and even an acrylic stamp set inside! I don't have any boys, so I thought I would pass it along to someone who can use it. Just leave me a comment if you are interested, and I'll choose a winner this weekend! =)
