Time is getting short but I'm making time for pink !

Just days left until Asheville and Jenn Hayslips Once Upon A Dream event and feathers, glitter and glue is flyin'!    One of the swaps is for a fairy broach and we are supposed to "package it pretty".   I decided to paint and decoupage a papier mache book box.

Here it is painted, decoupaged and almost ready.
I added a title ......
Decoupaged and fancied up the inside ....
Then nestled the Fairy broach inside ... there might be one or two tweaks left to do, I sure hope whoever ends up with it likes it !
Now I leave you with a photo of   Mr. Soooo NOTaCatPerson with Willie in his lap and Wynona wishin' she had got the lap first.  If you like cats  are killin' time you can read more about our kittehs here We are soooo NOT cat people
Please visit Beverly at   How Sweet The Sound
and see all the other participants in Pink Saturday.     I will try to post for next Saturday but may or may not make it .... until then  ya'll beee sweet and thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate your sweet comments.

I think the decoupaged box is wonderful. I love stuff like that. I also clicked to get a closer look at the fairy broach. It's so lovely!

Keep pinking!

Hi there Francie!

How are you my sweet friend? I haven't forgotten you. I too had puter problems and have also been super busy with different things,but all good. I just love,love,love the pretty box and brooch. Someone is going to be very happy when they get it. You're so creative. I got such a kick out of seeing the kitties. They are so beautiful. You are so blessed to have them. Hope you have a wonderful week. Isn't the fall great? I am loving every minute.
