It’s an Exciting Friday Announcement!

pad_distresscupcakeframe_tnuI’m so excited to finally be able to share with you all that I am the newest member of the Pez-a Doodle Design Team! *YAY*!!!! If you’ve never visited the store, you totally should! Wait, I’m getting ahead of myself, lol. First let me tell you about today’s project! I took an dollar store wooden frame that was originally baby blue, and painted it with Tim Holtz Distress Paint, in the Peeled Paint Color. And holy toads does she stock a ton of different colors of these paints! I applied two coats, for extra crackle, because I love the super shabby look. When it was all dry, I rubbed Tea Stain ink on it to age it a bit, and to rub off some of the paint so the blue showed through.

You see, this started out as a Valentine’s Day project for my husband. But once I decided to put the cupcake image in there, I knew I was keeping it, lol. The actual picture size is 3×3, so I cut a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock to fit that, and then a piece of Basic Grey Eva to be that mat.I layered another piece of the Pretty in Pink, and adhered a cupcake stamped in Versafine ink on Confetti White cs and colored with Copics – scrumdiddlyumptios, don’tcha think? The darling embellie on the corner of the frame came from Marti over at Pez-a-Doodle, and I have a feeling someone made that little cutie by hand! sn’t it darling?!?! I put some pretty pink crocheted ribbon up top, and gave the frame a place of honor on my desk. I love it!

Ok, back to how great Pez-a-Doodle Designs is! My cupcake image came from their exclusive Polka Dot Pie stamp line. This particular image is from Chocolate Treats #1 and I swear I wanna eat it! Marti just got back from CHA, and is bringing tons of new stuff into the store. And you now what that means – almost everything currently in the store is on sale! So be sure to go chck that out! Guess what just arrived???? FLOWER SOFT!! I am so excited I could burst! I cannot wait to get my hands on this stuff!

I’m so thrilled to be joining this talented group of ladies at such an exciting time for the store. I can’t wait to show y’all some of the other stuff I’ve made, and to try out new goodies and show them to you! Be sure and check out the Pez-a Doodle blog as well as the blogs of the other DT members – Catherine, Christine, and Robin.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!!
