She Likes It!

Here's another project just waiting to be shared.

I just so happened to be the fifth commenter on Rebecca's "1st Craft Challenge" post thus winning a chance to participate in her very first crafty challenge.

I had no idea what I would do, but figured why not!

A few Saturdays ago, I spent the day wandering around Michael Levine's $2 a pound Loft. I snagged a small scrap of dreamy pink satin. Not cheap prom dress satin, but thick decorators satin. Instantly I thought of Rebecca's challenge.

I began reading Thrifty Goodness while Rebecca was planning her Neapolitan colored wedding. The Pink and Brown Swap was the first swap I ever participated in. So, every time I see something pink and brown I think of her!

Stretch Your Wings

Naturally, the frame is thrifted. I used spray paint for the first time in many, many years. (I have a lot of room for improvement there.) The back is brown flannel.

This was a delightful little challenge! Thanks Rebecca!

Its sweet! I've been working on mine too.

And here is something wierd: on bloglines your picture is fine, when I click through the entire right side is cut off.

You are on a ROLL! I absolutely love that!

also, I see the same thing as Sarah. weird.

I saw that too. I was too tired to change it. For some reason this blog layout cuts off random pictures!

I can't express how much I love this!! And thank you for sending it to me. I have it on a shelf in my craft room. Pink and brown still makes me so happy! Thanks again!
