Home Decor....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a Wonderful
Weekend! Mine was tiring! I haven't been sleeping well lately so yes....
Tiring certainly sums up my weekend! Hopefully I'll go see the Chiropractor
this week and maybe he'll adjust what needs adjusting so I can sleep a little
better! :o) But in the mean time.... I have something cool to show you!!!!
One of my dear friends had a Birthday this past week.....
And I wanted to make her something other than what I
would normally make... I think I'm pretty in tune with my
friends and family to know what they like so I created this
just for her! :o)
My dear sweet friend Anna is very much a Girlie Girl!
And I knew when I decide to create this.... What colors
and Paper I was going to use!

All the letters were created with my Silhouette
using the letter boxes from the Silhouette Store!
All the Pretty Embellishments and Designer
Paper are My Mind's Eye

All the Tulle I got from my Local Craft Store,
All the Gems are from Stampin' Up

I had my hubby cut a piece of wood for me and
then I spray painted it a glossy grey...
After I assembled all the letter boxes
 I hot glued them down on the wood base,
then I decorated the letters to make
it a display piece for her craft room!
Of course I could not make the gift without creating
a card to match my friend's style! So here I cut out
the dress & hat from a Silhouette file and added
a paper Doily and some pretty Pearl Bling

added a little more Bling to the inside of her
card as well....
 So what do you all think of my Gift?? I've been
dying to post this but wanted to wait til I
gave this to my friend... She received this Friday
night at our Monthly All Night Crop!
I told everyone there:
"SEE I can make other things besides CARDS!" LOL
I'm putting my card in the challenge over at:
Paper Play time : Use Pearls
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

Your letters are great. I have fallen in love with the letters. I have made several things out of them and I have a dozen more ideas for them.

Those letter boxes are beautiful!! What a super idea! The papers and roses are gorgeous and I'm sure this gift was a hit with Anna. What a lovely card too!
