3D Tee Pee

This 'card' was created using one of the techniques on the new 3D and Fun Folds CD.  Isn't it fun?!!  Make sure you don't miss can order the CD by click on the link on my sidebar!  The images are from Sweet N Sassy Stamps.  I just love this little mouse, don't you?  I have a picture of each side as well as an angle picture for you.  Each side is like a little card all of its own.  They were all colored with Copic markers.

For those who drink Apple Juice

I was watching Dr Oz a few months back.  I just ran across the notes I took from his show.  If you or your kids or grandkids drink apple juice then you really need to watch the brands you purchase.

Dr Oz said that Arsenic isn't regulated in apple juice.  Hmmmm.....not good.  The FDA allowed amount of arsenic is 10 parts per million (ppm).  They went to random stores and even tested juices that mothers had at the parks.  The results were shocking to me.  I listed the brands he talked about and the lowest number and the highest number of arsenic those brands had on their random tests.

Miniute Maid        Lowest 2    Highest 3  (looks like this one isn't too bad.)
Apple & Eve         Lowest 2    Highest 11  (wow.....just above the legal limit)
Motts                     Lowest 4    Highest 16  (wowsers......more than twice the legal limit)
Juicy Juice             Lowest 2    Highest 22  (yikes!!)
AND.........the brand we probably trust the most with our babies.....
Gerber                    Lowest 6 (the legal limit)     Highest 36!!!  (Unbelievable!!!! more than three times the legal limit..)

Makes you wonder why they can get away with that....

I think I'm going to look into Organic brands.  It also reminds you that a trusted name like Gerber isn't always the best choice!

Don't Forget!

Don't forget to enter to win the new Technique Junkie 3-D CD.  So far, there are only 10 entries and that is VERY good odds!  ;-)  Go to the first post HERE to make you comment for entry!
