Gorjuss Girl Double Shaker...

I finally got a chance to make another double shaker box! I took the one on one teachings of Mrs. Teri...Big Ideas from a Little Girl...and the instructions from her tutorial to make this for my daughter's teacher. I'm making this for the end of the year, but if you know me...I would be frantic trying to finish it all. So I decided to start early and do a good job on it and be happy with what I let me know what you think =)
I got to see another double shaker box that Teri made for a friend and she used dew drops. I thought that would be a great idea, so I used that for the second shaker. the first side I used the microbeads and regular beads. Mrs. Chinen (Taelyn's teacher) loves pink and brown too. so I tried to stick to the color.
of course I had to use the gorjuss girls...she's so cute and just went perfectly for this double shaker! I used purple natural flowers, hibiscus burst ribbon from Papertrey Ink and I stamped and punched out the sentiment. I added some bling too! I had to use the Martha Stewart border punch for the dark chocolate CS around the shaker.
sorry...the pictures came out a little dark, but the flash was bouncing off the acetate window and giving it a bright I took off the flash and tried to brighten it when I edited the picture.
happy Friday everyone! hope you have a wonderful weekend! I just wanted to say thank you for all your kind and sweet comments that are left for me to read. I truly appreciate all of you and I am grateful that you leave me such wonderful messages. I count my blessings everyday and realize that life is too short to let a day go by without saying what I need to say. So THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
