Dumpster Dive...

...Crafter style! This kleenex box was headed for the trash can but the colors and design were so pretty I just hated to throw it away. the rescue came my Fiskars 4XL Squared Lever Punch to cut out the little hummingbird,
and ta-da! a cute card! finished off with Fiskars 1/2 Round Corner Squeeze Punch & Fiskars 3-in-1 Rotating Corner Squeeze Punch, Summer Fun!

movie review...

...of The Hunger Games. Excellent! After reading the entire trilogy I knew I just had to see the movie and I was not disappointed. It stayed true to the books especially since the author, Suzanne Collins, was in on writing the screenplay. Exciting, suspenseful and there a few moments I actually jumped and ooo'd and awww'd from the drama. The casting was right on but I wish Woody Harrelson's character was given a bigger part as in the books. I want to definitely see it again, 142 minutes runtime but you would never know it!
