I was able to finish my altered wood crate yesterday.  Ever since, I've liked the "black and white and another color" scheme.  I've seen other people do it with cards and scrapbooking layouts.  This is my shot at this really cool technique.  I painted the crate black, and foam stamped (Plaid Enterprises) it with white acrylic paint.  I wrapped a black lace around it, then I adhered the white assorted buttons on top.  I used ColorBok Prismatic Alpha Punch-Outs (from Walmart) for the words "create" and "inspire".  I added dimension on the die cuts using Pilot Latte.  For the flowers on the side, I painted a little bit of purple using Popstar Paint Pen I bought from Japan.  For the final touch, I adhered purple flower sequins on some of the buttons using Glue Dots. 

Now that I have started with this crate, I want to do the same with 9 other crates I bought from the 100 Yen Store back in Japan.  You can check out more photos of my Black & White & Purple Wood Crate here.

I recently discovered FreckleFriends through ScrapScene.  This website reminds me of SplitCoastStampers, only it focuses on traditional scrapbooking.  Since I don't belong to an online scrapbooking community, I decided to join this one.  So far, I find the people there really friendly.  They're actually having a contest for March, which is to make a layout all about LUCK.  I guess my muse is not lazy today, so I was able to make a layout about it.  My favorite thing about this layout is using the Ranger Inkssentials Glossy Accents and Suze Weinberg's Beadazzles.  Right now, I'm waiting for the guide lines to vanish (air erasable marker).

I thank Jerosha for the "enabler" she posted about the ShabbyPrincess website.  I was able to download a lot of freebies!  For this layout, I used the Urban Kiwi kit and Memory Mixer. I've been making a lot of scrapbook pages about my sister, and I haven't really done a single one about my brother.  I haven't seen him for 5 years, and I can't wait to see him next month!

Ok time for me to do house chores.....
