a mini cork board project using my {ippity} by unity...

WOW, what a BUSY last couple of weeks...
whew...
time sure flys when your having FUN and LOVING what you're doing...
that is FOR SURE!

we are now back from CHA and getting back to our "normal" but BUSY routine...
i have also recovered from my own craft show that i did a couple of weekends ago.  it was A HUGE SUCCESS...BUT... more on that another day {i'll be sharing pics this weekend of my booth so be sure to stop back!}


***let's CONTINUE on with this AMAZING hip HOP blog HOP with our {ippity} design team***

keep on hopping...you will find a FUN tutorial at the end of the hop!  YAY!

here's my project this week...
i have a new little "fondness" of finding old frames and re-painting and distressing them for a new updated {but old} look.  all the others i have created have a fabric center...but this little MINI frame i thought would look much cuter with some CORK...so here it is! 
i also added a wonderful quote {from the devoted set ...and the best part...i can always switch up easy peasy!

do you have the now & always set yet? 
if not...WHAT are YOU WAITING for???
i seriously use this set more than ANY OTHER set i own!!
don't you just adore that button in the center of my flower!?!?!
it's from the tim holtz collection and i just picked them up at the cha super show {thanks eva for pointing those out...i LOVE them and am so happy i purchased them!!}


i sprayed the flower, lace, and leaves all with glimmer mists...to give it a nice finishing touch with the perfect amount of SHIMMER!  love that stuff!
