Butterfly Kisses

I would like to share my Design Team post for Scraps of Color Espire with you.  I altered a large paper mache mail box from Hobby Lobby.  My soror Vanecia Kimbrow was in mind after sharing an amazing testimony of Living with Lupus featured in Southern Soul magazine - October 2014 edition.  She's a vibrant young lady and busy as a bee,  although she evolves like a butterfly.  That was the inspiration behind the mailbox. Of course purple is the color ribbon for Lupus. Maybe she'll put all of her happy mail in it while she continues to be encouraged and "Keep it Moving".

Recipe Ingredients:
Die Cut with a View - Floral Foliage stack
Deco Art Regal Purple - acrylic paint
QuicKutz - Butterfly Die cut
Martha Stewart - Butterfly punches
Fiskars - paper trimmer
Hancock Fabrics lace
Michael's- feathers
Prima - bling
Spare Part - Flowers
Recollections - Purple shimmer mist, Orchid stickles, flowers

Love you Vanecia!

  6. Hello, Papercrafting Princess,
    your mail box is great! I love both the theme (it's a long time I would like to make a mailbox) and the hues of the colors! The overall result is very sweet and it reminds a theme I love and I often use: love letters.
