Getting Creative and a GIVEAWAY!!!! :)

So I love to get creative...to think of new ways to use things. I was altering a birdhouse and I really wanted a tree to go with it. So I searched my stash for something to use as a tree. Here's what I found...


Yep, two pieces of chipboard--a large letter I and a wheel for a pirate ship. :)

Here's my birdhouse and tree...


I love how it turned out. Even love the big bow on the tree. :) The papers and chipboard are all Rusty Pickle. :)

And now that you have made it through that...I will give you what you want.

It's my two year blogoversary...well it was on Sunday...so I have a giveaway...a fabulous giveaway. :) Again, I have a kit pile-up. Too much other stuff to do. So I am giving away my August Scarlet Lime kit. You can't buy it, it is sold out, but one lucky person will get one here on my blog.



For a full list of the contents in this kit, click here.

So leave me a comment, and I will draw a name for it. For an extra chance at the giveaway--post about my giveaway somewhere...then leave me another comment with a link to where you posted it. Simple enough. I will close this drawing Sunday night at midnight (MT). Good luck everyone!
