Love and children...

I just got back from a visit with my hair stylist and I feel like a new woman! It's been way too long since I last had my hair done (since last October...eeek!). Kati also got her hair trimmed. It was her first time! I had to keep her curly yellow locks and bring them home. I meant to bring my camera to take some pics, but forgot.

Here is a little project that I made for my hair dresser and friend, Katrina. She had a baby girl not too long ago. Isn't Lily such a sweet name? This is a keepsake box by Melissa Frances, which I painted white and left some of the brown showing through for a worn look. I covered the top with Bonnie paper by Melissa Frances which is yellow, but you can't really tell from the pics. I added a rub on to the ribbon, a resin frame, 3D sticker (all Melissa Frances) and some Pink Paislee Enchanting chipboard letters to spell her name.
If you add a rub on to a ribbon, just make sure to press extra hard to get it to stick.
And a little card to go with it, also Melissa Frances products, except the pink letter stickers which are Pink Paislee Fashion Script. The little shoe is another 3D sticker.
Today some of my projects are being featured on the Dream Street blog, including this little mini album that I made recently of my family. "House of Love" Almost all of the papers here are from their new "Heartsong" line. I love the happy, springy colors!
Added some Jenni Bowlin ribbon, a resin piece from Melissa Frances, and some Pink Paislee Fashion Script letter stickers.
This was actually a card by Worldwin, but just by adding photos, it turns into a quick mini album. Here is the link to these cool cards! Accordian Tag
Be sure to check out the Dream Street blog! There are a ton of posts and projects coming by the design team this month! Have a good weekend with your loved ones.

I love your box and cards. What kind of adhesive did you use on the box to make the paper stick with no bubbles, etc. Beautiful work---honestly!
