Still getting organized

Yes, I'm still here, still trying to organize my life. It feels like it's always in chaos. I have decided I will post once a week on my blog. Sundays. Seems like that's usually a mellow day for us here, at least in the evening anyway. So I will post every Sunday and if I get a chance, during the week, but no promises there.
I know today is Monday, but shhhh. We won't tell anyone that. I did get some scrappin' done this weekend, yahoo, it's be a long while. Also played a little last week with the matchbox die for my big shot.
Made this matchbox for a friend who won the Amazing Race pool. She likes old vintage looking stuff so I tried to make it look weathered. Hope she likes it. Of course the inside is filled with scrapping goodies. (just not in this photo LOL)While I had the bid shot sitting out I decided to play a little more and made this little dresser/trinket box with 6 matchboxes and the topnote for the top and bottom. I covered 2 pieces of chipboard with pp (from SAB) and cut with the topnote die. I needed it stiffer then with just pp. I put the brads in 1/2 way then bent the legs open. Wanted them to be more like little knobs. It's pretty cute.
I guess I'm showcasing the bigshot as this card is also made using the bigshot.
The big scallop circle is used to make this dress. Too cute. Patty Bennet came up with this idea to make the dress, she's so smart!!
Well I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful rainy day! If my house wasn't full of children I'd be scrappin'!
