Thank you everyone who shared a response to my questions. I made it to 2000!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you all!!!!! I appreciate your kind words and input. I look forward to making a few changes in the weeks to come. I plan to have a Bella card giveaway in the near future too (5000 mark???)...just waiting for her to arrive in the mail first. So please stay tuned!
Okay so G doesn't have to stand just for Giveaway...haha like that is a coincidence. When I got creative tonight I was thinking girlfriends, grandma, great, grand....G!!!!! I had so much fun playing with my new designer paper, chipboard, my primas and of course ribbon. Oh do I love ribbon. Can you tell? (*wink*) And of course, this project wouldn't be complete without some Cutty action. I actually used the Provo Craft d'vine swirl embossing folder on designer paper then sanded the top of it and sponged it with creamy caramel ink. I love the distressed "old feeling" it radiates. The new spring mini paper arrived this morning and was screaming to be used so I could hardly contain myself. In fact, SU!'s Petals and Paisleys double sided designer paper has retro written all over it. It is no wonder I just magically found the sanding block and sponge in my right hand to give it a scrub down. I prepped the surface of my tin by painting it using Making Memories scrapbook colour: Shopping Bag followed by double sided sticky tape and then paper. To reiforce that old look, I sponge the entire tin, included the painted area using Creamy Caramel. As a final addition, I had to include Prima's Kiss Me Pink flower. I can hardly wait to fill it with goodies for someone special.
