Fork and Roses

Afternoon All:  We finally have a little sunshine.  Not for long though I hear :-(  .  Where I live in North Texas it's either feast or famine with rain.  Anyway enough of that.  A couple of my friends and I were talking about blogs.  Two of us have them and Beth who doesn't said she wished people would sometimes post their oops projects just so people who don't have blogs would know they aren't the only ones who make mistakes.  Well from that comment we launched into a bunch of different discussions which is why hanging out with friends is so fun.  By the end of the conversation both Teressa and I promised to post something that wasn't perfect; of which I have a ton.  Anyone else??
I took a couple of totally fun classes @ the Crafty Scrapper in Waxahachie Texas a couple of weeks ago.  One is a monthly Tim Holtz tag class  where she sets the stuff out and  you make it your way ,and the other was to learn how to use Wendy Vecchi products. Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016
 Loved it!!!  here's my tag .  Now as I promised Beth my oops.  I got to mad at myself.  I was loving how my cover was turning out then I looked at my piece---- Really I couldn't have noticed it earlier. do ya see what I did.  The backward lefty strikes again.   thanks of looking!!

Pink Box

Hi All:  Lately I've been into altering cigar boxes.   I so love the Royal Menagerie paper line from Prima!!  Maybe because I love pretty and pink.  This time I had a piece that screamed cigar box.  The paper is called Helena , probably my favorite in the whole collection.  I started by changing the color of the cigar boxes clasps, hinges and Idea-ology legs to silver with silver alcohol ink. Then Distress Black Soot paint to outline the box.  Next I attached the paper and legs. Last I attached my embellishments.   I app Simon Says Monday Challenge- Home Decor.  Thanks for looking
