Altered Wooden Box

Good morning EVERYBODY!!!! Hope all is well! I had an great and relaxing 4 day weekend! Ruckus made an AWESOME Thanksgiving meal...all by himself. He gave me the gift of relaxation. And I thoroughly enjoyed it! I played with my new Kindle Fire, got caught up on American Horror Story and hung out with Courtney & Noodles (William had to work and Bri was in Georgia). I got to scrap a little and complete my items for the 12 DAYS of DECEMBER SWAP with Linda!

Here is a project I completed for Noodles. I purchased a wooden box from the Dollar Tree and altered the heck out of it! I used my Ranger Color Wash in STREAM. Love the color! Used a crackle technique that I saw on Youtube~using ModPodge.  (I also heard my scrappy sister Patricia say she uses a ModPodge crackle technique. She is an awesome artist...check her out when you can>>>>tubeyoumaster1)  Since Noodles is a little fashionista and wants to enter the fashion industry, I decided to use a sewing theme! It all does start with scissors, needle and thread, right?

Here is a peek at my finished project. Have an awesome day!

Another Awesome Crop Hosted by Cropper's Delight NYC!!!!

The MURDER MYSTERY WEEKEND CROP at the Fernwood Resort in the Poconos, Pa. was AWESOME!!!!!!!!! As usual Susie, Meryle, Melissa and DJ Steve made it their number one mission to make sure all of the scrappers were happy! There were games, massages, vendors, classes, raffles, give-aways and more laughter than one human should be allowed!  LOL!!!! 60 happy scrappers left at the end of the weekend!

There were new scrappers and seasoned scrappers. Young and old scrappers. Introverted and extroverted scrappers. There were card-makers and ladies that just stuck to layouts. It was a very diverse group of race, culture and backgrounds. However, no one was made to feel uncomfortable or out of place-EVER!!!! This is the only group that I will ever crop with. EVER! The scrappers attend these great crops are always willing to share their knowledge, advice and even their tools! Yep you heard it-their tools. I have attended crops in the past, before meeting the FAB 4 of Cropper's Delight, and was very disappointed in the way the scrappers treated my scrappy mama & sistah, Gretchen and Charlotte. Yes the scrapping world can be a nasty one...but when it comes down to it..it is mostly glue and paper! There is no need to snub anyone who doesn't have the latest and coolest tools! Scissors can be used to distress paper as well as a an expensive distressing tool.

But, I digress! Please click the link below to find out about upcoming events that the Cropper's Delight will be hosting! Join the meetup group so that you may keep up with all of the fun activities. Let em' know I sent ya! I am attending their MY FAVORITE THINGS WEEKEND CROP in the Poconos in March 2012. I went last year and returned home with 2 bags of goodies that were given away to EVERYONE!!!!
