For my project I made my first altered box. I wanted my theme to be my Scrappy Sisters, since they inspire me so much. I used the DCWV All Dressed Up paper as well as many embellishments that I have received in RAKS. (including the box itself)

I left the sides of the box plain because I think the paper is so pretty.
 I used diamond shaped plastic gems as the feet and finished each corner with a tiny bow and bling.

For the inside cover I first covered it in paper, then I made a frame around it with light blue lace. I used cameo with a picture of three sisters dancing together on it as the focal point. I added a small butterfly, a bling embellishment, and a small flower to soften it a bit. The black embellishments were made with clay from molds(that I also made), and were lightly rubbed with silver rub n buff.

Thanks for checking out my project.

Now hop on to Shanta

If you get lost here is the list from start to finish!

Ladybug Series Part 1

Hi Everyone. My Daughter McKenzie will be turning 4 next month. I can't believe it, I feel like I just left the delivery room last week. It's true that they grow up too fast. For her party she had two requests, that I just couldn't deny. Firstly she would like a red ladybug themed party, hence the title. Second she asked for a party dress. This will be shown in a future post. 

These are the Invitations that I made:

This is a gift I altered from a  light green dollar store purse. She is very into little purses now to hold her small toys. I didn't show the jean strap because I didn't alter it.

I also made her and altered canvas as a gift for her room.
more to come...

My Baby Altered Canvas

I made this canvas to showcase a picture I love of my daughter McKenzie. I wanted to keep the focus on the photo, so I decided to use browns, coppers, and golds.

Unfished Projects

I have decided to work on a couple unfinished projects lately. So far two are complete. Project number one is a Chipboard Vanity I made using Cynthialoowho's template. I used the Far East paper stack.

The second project is a nameplate I made for my desk.

I want to send a  HUGE Thank you to my Scrap Sis Becca for sending me this award. I love ya buckets.

4. My boyfriend and I are total cat people. We have 3 named Spike, Willow, and Angel

Altered card deck

I decided to make something to help me choose what project to work on or give me inspiration when I am feeling blocked. This card deck is what I came up with. I will also be making a challenge deck in the future.

My first mini album

tiny mini roses and small lace flowers

I love making these tiny paper roses. They are a bit smaller than a dime. And the lace flowers are the ones I used on my chipboard armoire doors
