Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii's Featured "Aloha" Blogger...

Hope you all are having a wonderful Tuesday, today's posting goes to Stamp n' Scrap Hawaii's Featured "Aloha" Blogger, Joy of A Place To Be Me.

Before I share with you the project I've been inspired by Joy, to create, let me first share with you this wonderful RAK she had sent to me months and months ago, during my MIA days (sorry for the loooooooooooong delay Joy). I loved it and was so encouraged to create one myself.
Although Joy is one sister that wears many hats, crafting is where she truly has a fine gift in. Pop over to her blog and you shall see what I mean. She can make everything and anything. She has, and will always be, such an inspiration to me. Thanks Joy!

This is what I came up with but...after really looking at it, I decided it was just too plain and will be dressing it up a wee bit more. Till then, this is the first take...
As you can tell, this envelope/folder is also a shaker box filled with a variety of pretty mini, mini beads. I lined the scalloped nestie with pink gem stones and the flowers are made of felt with more pink gem stones attached. Both the pretty gem stones and the beads can be purchased at LittleC's.
These are the actual images that Joy has blessed me with. I used them in my photo just to give you an idea of how well it fits. Nothing too fancy but very easy to make.
Thank you for stopping by today. As always...may you have a beautiful day in the Lord. Aloha and God bless!

hugs in Jesus~
