Pretty in Pink Mixed Media Canvas

Pretty and Sweet, Delicate and Petite, a mixed media project made simple.

Every once in awhile, I like to do something I little different from my usual projects.
This mixed media canvas is one of those projects.
It reminds me of a crackling wall found in an old cottage.

Pretty Pink Birthday Party Sign

Pink Birthday Party Frame 4299

A quick share today of a Pretty Pink Birthday Party Sign…

I made the sign using the Deflecto Craft Frame, Pink Border, 8.5 x 11 Inches (69771CR)

from Deflecto Craft Solutions and the new Flamingo ColorWay paper and stickers from

Paper House Productions.  I love the way they look like they were made for each other.

After the Party is over, add a couple cute photo’s of the birthday girl for a fun memory.

Happy Monday Everybody!

Pretty in Pink

Little Miss Serenity, so Pretty in Pink.

I was shopping with my sister the day she/we found this pretty pink outfit.

As any good sister would, I helped her justify why she really needed it.

I’m good at that sort of thing.

I told her “just think of how cute it’ll look in pictures”.

I was right, wasn’t I?

It’s hard to believe my sweet little niece will be four in just a couple of weeks.

Such a Sweetie!
