Happy Mail From My Secret Sister!!!

I came home late Saturday night from my crop and there in my mail was a package from my secret sister! Look at all the loveliness that was in the box!!!!!Patterned papers, stickers, and ribbons from the AWESOME Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday line, plus gorgeous thickers and coordinating cardstock! I am so thrilled! Thank you so much secret sister!!!

Speaking of secrets - I spent all day decorating my plate for the SiStv "mystery item" contest. The way it works is: 20 people signed up to be in a contest - all we knew was that we were going to get a "mystery item" to decorate. Once the sign-ups were complete we got to see what the item was. We were given a little tin plate - about 3.5" wide and told to decorate it any way we want. Then we send it in with just our given number on the back - no name. Then there is blind judging. It's going to be so much fun to see what everyone comes up with! I wish I could share what I did but I guess that will have to wait!

I just realized I didn't do my project 52 ATC this week. I discovered I really like doing a monthly theme for these cards. My plan for June is to do a series of mixed media ATCs in honor of the Collage Couture class I'm taking.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend my friends! I will be back tomorrow with another update! Thanks for stopping by!

That Cosmo Cricket Girls line is fantastic! I bought me some of that paper a few weeks ago, but haven't used much of it yet. I thought of maybe using it for a mini album... I'm curious to see what you'll create with it!
