Hello! I am sorry for my absence the last few days. There's really no reason except that I felt lazy and didn't want to create much, and even when I did, I didn't want to post... =)

Anyway, I mentioned a while back about the Mini Creative Scraps I helped to design for Crafty Secrets:

Well, I didn't do everything, all and all myself.. it would have been impossible without the hard work of Sandy, the owner of Crafty Secrets, and Cindy, her amazing graphic designer. I just pitched in and did my little bit to conceptualize and collage.

Here is my first project using the awesome little scraps. The 1" squares are SO fun to piece together!!! I also used some patterns from the Vintage Patterns CD and a cute little sentiment from the all new Born to Fly stamp set!

Isn't that cute? I love all the different "fairy-options" and the special sentiments. I've already made another project that I will share on Monday next week with a step-by-step tutorial. (OOPS! I spilled the beans!)

Can you see the gentle shine over some of the mini-scrap squares? Those are epoxies that fit perfectly over the mini scraps. Fun!!!

I guess you should get some Mini Creative scraps and have some fun yourself too........ I'm just so excited about them them, and I have two extra sets that I would love to share. If you care to try them out, please let me know. I will draw two comments from this post on Sunday, and let you know who they are on Monday. (I already wish that I had enough to send to everyone who leaves a comment!!!)

Thank you for stopping by!
