A challenge

Okay, my main reason for starting this blog is all the wonderful challenges out there for paper crafting. I have always love the challenges and have participated in a few, without posting pictures. I have also been very inspired by the talent of those who post their creations. Not sure if I will inspire anyone, but I really just wanted to play along.
Anyone who really knows me, knows my love of Etsy. There is some serious talent happening over there. If you have never been, GO check them out NOW! It's okay I will not be offended if you leave me for a bit, just come back soon. Well, one day I stumbled upon EtsyInspired. Really I can combine my love of Etsy and a challenge! I am in!
So this week's challenge was for the super cute ManicMuffinTotes. I love the colors of the owls, but I decided to go with the mushroom. It was just so cute and versatile. I have been slowly getting my twins bedroom together, so I made wall art for their room. I have only made one, but I think it will turn into a set of four. Time will tell.

  1. OMG this is adorable! I love it! What a great idea to create on canvas!

    Thanks so much for playing EtsyInspired this week!

  2. This is totally fantabulous!!! Love all the texture, and the colors are awesome... Thanks for playing along with the EIC! :)

  3. Yeah, in the deets you forgot to mention your mad painting skillz. My version, even with the same supplies would have turned out soooo not cute! And I love the circle windows, by the way!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. They make my day!
