Have you ever...

I was wondering have any of you ever made something, and crushed on it? =]
Ya know? Like you make something and LOVE it?
Coz I kind of have a crush on my latest altered canvas! When I bought this DCWV
*Vintage* paper pack last year on clearance it was love 1st first sight! Seriously.
The paper I used in my latest altered canvas was one of my faves from that stack!
I also used some papers from K and Company's *Life's Journey* stack and some vellum
and other random cardstocks... Anyways here are a few pics!

I embelished with some cuts from my cricut... a couple of ribbon roses I made, and
some recollection's blingage from Michaels. The featured pic is one of the hubby and I a few
years ago, and is being displayed just for show here. I hope this finds a happy home this
weekend at the craft fair thingy! Though... part of me will be sad to see it go! <3
God's blessings!                                <3 - Desiree'

My altered box.

Well, it has been INSANE in my lil' world lately! There is a local festival going on and I'm going to try and sell some of my things there. Being a bit socially challenged this is a big thing for me!
I'm really quite geeked about it though!
One of the things I am planning on selling is my altered box...
After I was done with this it dawned on me that I REALLY need to start taking before-during-and-after pics when I do a project like this! I posted this to facebook and got some positive comments! Loved them all.
I'm pleased with how it turned out! My youngest... everytime he looks at it always says it looks old, =] in kind of a shocked voice. Which pleases me more coz I was going for a *vintage* or *antique* look.
I have so much more I want to do this week, anyone reading this send up prayer for me please! That I will get everything beautifully done and that it will be a success! God bless!         <3 - Desiree'
