You've Got Mail!

I absolutely loved this challenge that Nilda gave to us. Mostly, because I think of all the things that I love to create, altered items are my favorite!! So, we were supposed to use those super cute $1.00 Target mailboxes for this challenge. Well unfortunately, I do not have a Target within 2 hours of traveling and I had my girlfriend look for my and they did not have them. So I did what I do best...create my own. I found a pattern from Better Homes and Garden that I used for a template after enlarging it quite a bit, and created mine out of recycled cereal boxes (my favorite recycling item to use when scrapping) I added my own little twist here and there.


All papers used are My Mind's Eye
Cardstock Bazzil
Cuttlebug Embossing folder- D'Vine Swirls
Studio g pink pigment ink
Brads
tulle
pink fur trim

Thanks for stopping in and be sure to stop by The Cuttlebug Spot and check out all the othe cute mailboxes my DT sisters have in store for you. Plus, don't forget to leave a comment for this week's random drawing!

Happy Scrapping!
