Have Fun...another Fashionista 56

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, February 14, 2012 @ 9:00 PM | , , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day with your loved ones if you celebrated! This past weekend, we celebrated both my son Jerry's birthday along with his girlfriend April's :) I made April a mini fashionista wall hanging inspired by Julie Nutting.
April is such a fun and kind hearted sole. She works nearly full-time as a bank teller while attending University full-time. I'm so happy Jerry met such a sweet girl :)
On the back, I've attached a small envelope that holds a gift card hence the Have Fun sentiment :)
Here's a photo of Jerry and April:
In case you are curious about the creative process on how I made this project, here is a video tutorial sharing steps along the way:

Thanks so much visiting ~ hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue ~ Tailored Suit, My Mind's Eye
Dies: Spellbinders Grand Large Labels, Grand Calibur
Paint: various colored Ranger and Liquitex
