Join the fun for our first Friday Fun Day Challenge @ LGC!

Hi friends & happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I am soooo glad this day has arrived. After a long week, I look forward to a weekend of being crafty and selling Girl Scout cookies with Soph like it's nobody's business. At least we get to visit some of our old, totally awesome friends that we haven't seen in ages.

Not only am I excited for the weekend, but I am thrilled about the two projects I have for you today. (Please see the post prior to this one for my Frosted Designs project!)

First, have you heard? Lucky Girl Crafts just started our new weekly challenges with a kick-butt monthly prize and it rocks!

Our Lucky Girls will be posting new projects each and every Friday for you to gain inspiration from using the overall design, color combination, project title and/or use of embellies. At the close of the month, we'll pick the best of the bunch for a chance to win the latest Lucky Girl Crafts kit or store credit. Check out this link here for full rules & details so you can play along!

Here's our first Friday Fun Day project inspiration for your crafting pleasure:

You've Got Mail

I used some of my left over papers from the January LGC Kit "Forever Love" for this altered tin mini mail box, plus flowers, ribbon and bling from my stash. For the little flourish, I cut out the corner of the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Oliver Die Cut paper from the kit and used it as a mask. I sponged acrylic paint over my home-made mask, then outlined it in fine tipped permanent marker to make it stand out against the striped paper.

I am also playing along in this week's ScrapFit challenge, which is to use scraps. You'll see more of Lucky Girl Crafts as the February ScrapFit sponsor, and more of me there next month when I'm their guest DT!

Ah, this is so cute! I'd love to make something like this for my niece. Actually, I think that's what I'll do. Thanks for the fabulous inspiration!
