My Exciting News!

WOW!! I am soo excited!! Marisol Jiminez, the Assitant Editor of "Scrapbook News and Review" has asked me to become a member of their staff!! How freakin' cool is that?!! I am both honored and thrilled to be a part of such a great team!! Thank you so much Marisol and Kate! You both ROCK! I can't wait to get started!

And since, I am on here, I guess I'll post a few things I made for my craft show this upcoming weekend! Which I'm still not ready for, by the way!!

Here are a couple of snowflake boxes I made. They are paper mache boxes that I covered with some adorable Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper. I also added a wooden snowflake by Provo Craft which I painted a light blue, then when dry, coated it with some glue and then smothered it in glitter! Then I added some sheer ribbon, a felt
snowflake and a button. Under the snowflake, I ripped apart a few cotton balls, soaked them in glue and then sprinkled on some glitter! To finish it off, I added some white trim along the rim and a sheer bow on the top.

Here is a baby frame I made, which is 1 of several! I used DCWV paper, a tag by Wild Asparagus, baby labels by Melissa Frances, ribbon, hemp cord, buttons, chipboard heart and a rub-on by Deja Views.

And this is a Birthday Cake Box! Just a fun box that a small gift could be put into! It is a satin box that I covered with papers by Pink Paislee and Basic Grey. I also used some Inque Boutique Butterfly stamps, Prima Flowers, Satin ribbon, glitter and of course, a real candle.

Wish me luck on the craft show, I think I'm gonna need it!!

Well, I better go and feed my family!! I was so excited about Scrapbook News and Review, I forgot all about dinner!! LOL

Have a great night!!

Hugs, Melissa
