Altered Frame/Purse + new kit...... And yes-Blog Candy

Hello-Glad to see you back.

My project I am posting was my very first Guest Designer Post 1 year ago.. It is also my favorite.

The beautiful lady is this picture is my MOM.  She has been gone for 4 years but I was blessed to have her for 36 years....

I used the Forever Young Cartridge.  This was very fun to make..


Now come check out my new KIT......If you are ready for "Spring" and love brand new paper then this kit is for you..... I used the "April Showers" cartridge.  This kit is $25 plus shipping.  For more pics and ordering info go to www.MoniqueGriffithDesigns.com.

Don't forget Monique has some great blog candy also.

For our regulars-If you cannot already tell-I am challenging you to do new things.  This one adds a little quilling.  Very easy to do and puts the extra touch on a layout.

  
Ok-Now for the Blog Candy--------MY blog candy is my "Rainy Day" kit

Remember-Monique has some awesome "BLOG CANDY" so go visit her at www.moniquegriffithdesigns.com

Thanks for hanging out.  Remember bring your friends to become a follower also.
Happy Thursday!
Wendy

  122. Wow!!! That is all I can say. I love the frame, purse and both layouts! I am one of the sideline Cricut owners - I have several cartridges but just don't put them to the use they deserve. Your work inspires me to think outside the box and I hope after we get to move back home this summer so I can help care for my Mom who was recently diagnosed with ESRD and placed on dialysis that I can begin creating - especially since I will have my own bit of inspriation coming along in September thanks to my beautiful daughter and son-in-law! Yep, I'm gonna be a first time grammie!!! So excited!
