Weekend Fun!

Lots of fun things to show you today, My Bloggy Friends!

First, I get to show you the cards and tags I made for my swap partner, Becca, since she received them and now I can't spoil the surprise!







































Next....I just can't wait till Monday to show you one of THE YUMMIEST THINGS I have ever seen.....EVER!!!! My friend, Jennifer, of Sweet Eye Candy Creations (I showed you her dear little birdy boxes last Monday, remember?) just revealed an EXQUISITE shadowbox she was comissioned to make by an Italian art collector many of you may have heard of named Rosanna. I am absolutely WOWED by Jennifer's work....



















This is my favorite little element....if I HAD to pick!;)
