Guest Design Team Work For 'Berry 71 Bleu'

Hey everyone! How are you doing today? I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful week! I am having a ball this week because my parents are here in PA visiting!!! We have had so much fun! I love when they come to visit! We laugh a lot! I think we are off to the Civil War Museum in Harrisburg today. But before we get going, I wanted to hop online for a few minutes and do a little blog post.

I have to introduce you all to a fabulous blog! It's called 'Berry 71 Bleu' and is home to one talented scrapbooker named Marivic. She makes the most GORGEOUS tags you have ever seen! I mean, drop dead gorgeous! If you would like to check out her blog go HERE. It is really awesome! I hope you'll drop in and take a peek!
 Now, I am so excited today because I have the honor of being on the June Guest Design Team at Marivic's blog! She sent me 2 of the most beautiful tags to work with. Let me tell you guys, I just stared in awe when the mailman dropped these at my door. Her tags are so ornate and include some adorable embellishments!
 Now, on to my projects. First up, I created an altered frame for my wonderful husband, Brandon. This frame was inspired by a older tune that we like to sing. And this is a special little saying we will tell one another. So I wanted to highlight our little love song into a frame to display in our bedroom.

"Sugarpie, Honeybunch, You Know That I Love You"

Supplies Used
Tag: handmade by Berry71Bleu
Patterned Paper: Graphic 45
Alphabet Stickers: Sassafras, American Crafts, BasicGrey, Fancy Pants Designs, Glitz Design
Bling: The Paper Studio
Lace, Gold Buttons, Flowers: included in kit from Berry71Bleu

Marivic's tag on this frame is located in the lower left hand corner. It is a cupcake themed frame and looks good enough to eat!
 Here's an up close of the tag. If you'd like to see even more detail, click on the pic to make it bigger.
 What luscious flowers! I adore these!
 For my second project, I decided to highlight another of Marivic's tags on my favorite style of card...an easel card. Here is what I came up with:

"U R Sublime"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio
