It's been way to long

Hey There Friends
I can not believe that it has been a month since either of us posted to the blog and that is way to long. I know we have both been busy, and now that I have some help, things are starting to get a bit easier for me and giving me some more time to get crafty.
When we were at CHA, KaiserCraft was giving away a bunch of their beyond the page items, and I was lucky enough to be able to get this shelf that I had been eyeing for so long. I had to do some trading to get it, and then prayed that it would fit into my already full suit case, but lo and behold it made it home with me. It has been sitting on a shelf, looking at me, just dying to be decorated. I finally decided that over the week end, I would do some crafting and this is the end result of the finished project.

There are three drawers that I made spiral flowers with fabric sent to me from Char, misted the fabric with Starfish, and then dressed them up with some of the Tim Holtz Buttons. The paper is the Butterfly Garden by Pink Paisley and I used Starfish Glimmer Mist to color the edges of the box (yes it works great on wood)

The back is decorated with another spiral flower, a butterfly sent from Char with the fabric
and then I made myself a post card with an inspirational message that says
"Life if full of twists and turns, but no matter what happens,
 you have it with in yourself to over come it all. Live as each day as is it were your last"

And last but not least this is the side view. I had to use this paper on each end because when I looked at it, it was a love love love relationship.

Thanks for looking !!!!
