Ready Set? Go!

Hi there… well. you might have wondered why my October Calendar sheet was up last week but September was missing Smile Here it is.. it was finished sooner and than I noticed that it would fit perfectly into this weeks Challenge on Cute Card Thursday – we want to see your “at the office” creations.

As always.. I used only papers from the Magnolia line – layout is created with papers from last years Christmas collection – I just loved the really bright red and the bottom part is from the current You are the winner Collection.
currently I am finding myself “dusting” all the paper edges. Kind of like it for a change – all though I think I should have my box of Swiffer cleaner sheets now constantly on my desk. What a mess. The edges here are created by adding some glue, wiping it with my finger a little around and than adding black Martha Stewart glitter. I like it.. cause the dispenser looks kind of the ones you get your spices in. The little corners are heavily coated as well. Maybe it shows on the picture below a bit better.

The rest is pretty straight forward.. nothing much to tell I guess… I loved the little silver clock charm dear Carole gave me a long time ago. I remember I got it in 2008 with the school collection lol. Iam a big keeper of everything, even paper snips.
I punched a slot with my horizontal punch in the big empty space below Tilda’s arm and criss crossed a black and one white grosgrain ribbon – different – never done that before and I like the look. I almost was sad that most of the effect got covered from the September calendar.
For those of who asked for the bag I have made last week. I was able to tape a Video of a second bag (I tried to speak English Smile). Now hubby needs to cut the blurb out Smile I think I can show it to you on Sunday. So if you like to make one too or just get the dimensions, I have most of it in cm and inches noted down for you.
hugs and thanks ladies
Claudia
