Artist Trading Blocks

 Hi all, welcome to this weeks Mad About Scrappin project share.  Now I might be a little late jumping on to the band wagon where these little cuties are concerned, but OMG guys have you seen these? Artist Trading Blocks!! I am hooked!! I want to make more!!  They are going to make awesome gift giving ideas and christmas is now only a few months away??  No harm in getting in early hey?

I have just used the basic cube as my foundation.  I created three different sizes 2 inches, 2.5 inches and the base block is three inches.  There are templates for these cubes all over the net so I won't bore you with the "how-to" details.  I have upcycled some cereal boxes to make mine.  I was really after a strong sturdy block.  I then inked them with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and covered them with Papermania's Madame Payraud collection....LOVE these papers!!

 So here are my glamour shots.  I haven't added photo mats and  frames yet.  I am enjoying it just the way that it is, but there is lots of space for small family pics and of course the Monthly Challenge quote.
