My Grandaughter Whit who really is a TREASURE!!!! On this lo I I cut the shape out of a shipping carton, I used water to get the outside layer damp, then it is alot easier to remove, I painted the cardboerd with white paint then added some Tim Holtz crackle paint, I painted a cake doilie with the crackle paint & it just curled up like that on the edges, put lace around the edge of the cardboard & I found
these small frames in a thriftstore, I luv going to the thriftstores to look for stuff to use on my los, I got a small bag of the frames for under a $1
Now in other news... My husband Tom just got a new coaching job at a large school in Lacey wa. He hates to leave the WP Panthers but this is a great opportunity for him!!!
I just checked out the new challenge at the "Lets get Shabby" blog & it is a great challenge, I can't wait to get started on a lo for it!! If u get a chance go check it out, The design team did some of the PRETTIEST los 4 examples, boy r they ever talented!!!
Gotta go do my shabby lo but thanks so much 4 stopping by I really appreciate it!! Toni
