duct tape happy quote tray

i need another tray like i need another hole in my head.
and i have plenty of holes in my head, aside the ones we are all born with.

but i was inspired and y'know, 
things just happen from there...

over the weekend, i made this:
it all started with an innocent trip to michael's, just like my other 99,712th trip there this month.

for about 8 bucks, i picked this up:
and i grabbed some duct tape i already had and went to town. 
lemme show you how you can make one too.

easy right?
wanna know what else i found there?
these:
these are a brand new $5 item to the store. 
i guess an easy way to describe what you use these for is to pretend they are baseball cards and stick them in a plastic divider page along with some of your own personal pictures.
but i don't wanna do a scrapbook.
i ended that crazy phase years ago when i spent 3 hours and an entire paycheck (about) making one page in my daughter's album.

i got to her 10 month old page, got tired and broke, and stopped.
she's 14 now...

and let's not talk about my son's non-exsistent scrapbook.
:>P

i know these pocket pages make scrapbooking much much easier cuz they are all matchy matchy but i got so excited looking at all the designs i couldn't help myself but use them lickety split.

and even if i do decide to use them in a scrapbook i would still need to print out pictures to go with them.

my lazy butt rebels!

anywho, after grabbing the packs you saw above, i grabbed another one which was my favorite.
inside the pack were these:
i must admit i am quote addicted.
the little words of inspiration just brightens my day and although i LOVE quote printables, i usually have them in my "save" computer folder and rarely get around to printing them off.

but these are already done, making life a little easier.

so then this next step came to be.
and you are done!
another hole in your head tray for all your necessary needs.

oh but before i go, i wanted to show you one more quote that reminded me of you:
i know it's already on my sidebar but i just wanted to let you know it's still true.

have a great day and happy scrapbooking crafting!

oh hey i just thought of this,
i will tell my hubby & kids how nice a mother's day breakfast in bed would be using this tray!

now that's using my hole-y head huh?
