**Birthday Kisses**

 Hello everyone! Got a LO to share with ya! This is a LO that I done for the RR challenge over at Swirlydoos. Its of my Grandmother and her two great great granddaughters. She turned 88 and we had a little birthday celebration for her. This photo that I shot was very sweet moment and I just had to scrap it!
I wanted to keep everything soft in this LO including the title so that the picture would really pop. I used Kaisercraft "Bonjour collection". The flowers are a mixture of my own, Prima and Swirly flowers. The cutout at the bottom was made using my Cricut and the butterflies was cutout of the same PP. The letters of the title is CTMH, Walmart doily and ZVA pearl flurish. The overlay I'm not sure because I cut the MF off before I wrote it down.. Sorry.. How about some close-ups?

This close-up you can see another vine that I made and the prima flowers that I used. Oh and I will be announcing soon what date the tute will be available and where to find it for the flowers that go along with the vine.. LOL I can't wait to share my news with you guys!! I'm soooooo VERY excited! Ok got a little carried away!! Heehee Next close-up

I treated the lettering with a little TH spun suger destress stain and some create-a-shade pearl paint. This is a great combo.. So soft and delicate. Next close-up..

Just a close-up of the fussy cutting and the pretty butterfly. It actually has as metallic areas on it, but didn't show up for the pics.

 Check back with me the end of this week, cuz I will be announcing my AWESOME news!!! Goodnight all and God Bless!!

*** New Box To Share***

 Hello everyone! Boy has this month been a roller coaster for me! Let me tell ya.. My PC crashed and I was completely upset. It started having slow issues and then completely said Ca put. I had a awesome PC guy that came out and tried to fix it and it was a lost cause, but he did save everything!! Your a ROCK STAR Jack! Thanks soooo much from the bottom of heart!! Also wanted to send a shout out to my DH because he helped me get a new one!! Love you so much sweet heart! I have something else that is going on but it is a secret right now shhhh can't say anything. What I can do however is share one of my new boxes that I just got finished. Here are some pics..
Believe it or not I made that cameo! I have been checking out the Flying Unicorn site and found a awesome tute by Denise on how to make them! Here is the link. The flowers used is Prima, Petaloo and SD's. The nest, bird and butterfly is Prima also. The Swirls are ZVA, this is the first time for me to use ZVA and I think I like them a lot! Perfect size and no cutting them down. I loved that! The frame around the cameo is FX. The cut out in the back ground was made from a Cricut cart. The one that I yap about all the time. The Back ground PP is Glitz and the cardstock that I used was Brazzell. Ok for some more looks..
The Legs and name plate are Tim Holtz.. Some more pics..

I used the same Poem as a request for the person that I made the box for. Its a Christmas present for her aunt. Last view and this is a close up of the top.
Well I hope you like it.. Thnaks for taking the time to look!

Can't wait to share more with you, but for now its goodnight all and God Bless.
