A special gift for Krystalyn

Good Morning uhhhhh so tired today.Yesterday was my baby,sophia's birthday and she is now 2yrs old.We only Sang to her and gave her hand made presents from her sisters and brother.Her Bday party will be on Saturday, she will be sooo happy I'm positive when she see's that her bday theme is ELMO!! I don't know why she loves Elmo.Well will see how it goes.

Today i have something different.I did an altered paper mache box for MY OLDEST KRYSTALYN for her knick knacks.I forgot to take pictures of the inside but it's altered with the same paper as the outside and flowers around the rim of the top.This box was hard to take pictures of.I know i'm bad but i couldn't get good pictures so sorry about that. I got the inspiration from a few challenges so i better finish this up before I'm late again LOL! I'll be posting my Anya Ink Dt card right after this so make sure you stop by.

I have a butterfly charm hanging above the k initial there both steal.I'm thinking maybe she could hang more tiny charms all around to her taste

Her name are chipboard letteres distressed and sprayed with Tattered Angel.I really like the result of it.I specially like the ends and taht was on there already.The letters have gold designs on the tips!!!

I have wings coming out of her name:)
