Let's get Shabby- Challenge!

Hello ladies, today I have a project to share with you. The challenge this month over at Let's get Shabby is to use a photo of the kitchen below and to use fabric...and since I don't know how to do things half way I made a mini album out of fabric and chipboard. I made "sleeves" for the chipboard using shabby chic fabric, then I closed the "sleeve" shut. I then embellished the pretty little house with lots of beautiful products from The Dusty Attic, Prima Marketing, K & Co. paper, Maya chipboard, among many other yummy embellishments. I put a lot of love into this project because it will sit on a shelf in my scrapbook area and because the prize is amazing! One lucky person will win a beautiful prize from Maxines Melange! Their stuff is amazing!

This is the kitchen I was cooking in...

And here is my project for this challenge.  I will have a tutorial on my Welcome Home mini album...

Here are some close ups:

I even made a flower planter with Creative Imagination Wood Paper and added moss and tiny flowers!

This cute page features brand new Prima and Dusty Attic Chipboard...

A page for me and my babies, I used Dusty Attic, K & Co. papers, lace, pearls and lots of layers of delicious goodies...

This last photo features Melissa Frances paper, Prima flower, Tim Holtz scroll and a shape I cut with my Cricut.

Well, that's all I'm sharing on this post, even though I have many more pictures of this mini album.  I really liked making this mini from scratch and use my sewing skills!

I was featured in the Melissa Frances Blog...Again!

Hi ladies, lately I've been a target for negative people in the blogging world. I know there are people who are very insecure about their crafting and their inspiration, but I also know that there are many of us who are willing to help those in need if and when they ask. There is no need for the mean comments...I rather focus on the wonderful people I've meet since I became a member of various scrapbooking communities. So, now that I got that out of my chest I would like to share with the girls who are actually happy and proud of me that my Kitchy Kitchen cupcake is featured in the Melissa Frances blog. Here is the link
Once again thank You for the wonderful comments...and the not so them all!

Now I leave you with a card I made a couple of days ago.  I made it using papers from Melissa Frances, Prima flowers, Martha Stewart Punch and glitter.
