Mod podge box-------

About 9 layers of mod podge is on this box lid, each one slightly wrinkled and unique to me :).

I am typing this up early and will post it early and then add pictures. It feels like I am watching paint dry...well not really in the in between time I have been picking up and organizing the house.  I kind of like projects that force you to take a 20 minute break for every 10 minutes of crafting. Really makes me.....oh who am I kidding DRY ALREADY, darn mod podge!
I used a CC stamp that is so cute, this little girls face is simply precious and she is carting around large flowers in her wheelbarrow. I am entering into Fussy and Fancy-- with the fairy image. I like the over all colors and the over all feel, I tried to go spring but not as bright as my last spring project. I will not get much work done if I want to sit in my craft room and look at my finished boxes. 

Not sure if one is better than another. 

The layout came from none other than Any one for Anya---  It works really well with my space and let me play with more paper space than I normally get too. Speaking of paper, I picked up most of the paper that is patterned at a "not named" craft store last year spring clearance. I loved it so much I bought 2 but now I have like 6 sheets of each page and I regret buying more just because it was at a good price. Some good does come from this, because the paper is a year old I can enter Tuesday Throwdown-- because they are asking us to use those stashed items up!  I am entering it into 7 kids college fund-- where anything goes, anything also goes with Creative Inspirations!-- It seems to be the "anything goes" week because Scrapbooking Queen--- is also hosting a challenge that is just that.  My pastel and spring colors used let me enter Digi Design studio ------, Truly madly crafty-----, Totally Gorjuss----  and Crafts and me!-------  Layering the papers and making the circle layered cut out lets me put my project into The paper shelters----- challenge.

Lots of links! Its amazing what you find when you see what you have made can be entered into. One time I entered into a challenge about 10 minutes before it closed. Nope did not win but that's not my point. I think its fun to be given direction and inspiration on projects. 


  1. Just darling! So glad you joined our Anything Goes Challenge at 7 Kids College Fund!
