January 2011 Magazine challenge

Hello and Happy New Year!! Wow, we a third of the way through January already!! I can't believe it!

Well, My friends all got together and went to a crop today, but I had to stay home while my sweet hubby went and played mechanic on my daughter's car!  I didn't let that stop me though! I called my faithful scrappin' sidekick, Bethany over and we had an amazing time.

This is Bethers or Bethamy as my little little girl calls her!!!
I decided to work on the Circle magazine challenge today, so on the way home we stopped at the most awesome little thrift store near my house.  They had some really great finds in there, but Beth found this really cool box and we just knew it was made for this project. I have no idea what is supposed to be for, but it is really neat.  It looks like it holds pens or paint brushes or something.

Well, I had some beautiful sheets of wood veneer I had been saving for some thing.  I just didn't know what until... today!! I cut the two little fairies from A Child's Year! The Cloud with Dream is from Home Accents and, because I used my ever trusty Gypsy, I was able to put them in 6 inch x 5 inch rectangles from George so I didn't have to worry about centering them. Worked like a charm!  Love that Gypsy!

Finally I added paper to the sides, pearls as accents and the flowers on the top!

Voila!! I can't believe how good it turned out!  I wish you could see it in person! I keep looking at it and I still can't believe it!  I am soooo happy!

What did the litle one do while we were playing, you ask?  She played too!

Wow! She blows my usual projects away! I love that little girl so much!

Well, until next time!



  1. Happy New Year, Jodie!!! Glad you and Bethamy had a great time, and what a wonderful box project!

  2. Your box is beautiful. I would like to try cutting wood myself one of these days and your project may just push me over the edge. Great job!
