Sugar & Spice Challenge
I decided to play along with the Sugar & Spice Challenge over at Noel Mignon.com's Challenge Blog. Instead of creating a layout, however, I decided to make some nursery decor for the girls' room. It's been something I have meaning to do for awhile but I have either a) been busy being a mom or b) not been sure what I want to do in there. Nora & Lily's bedding is very soft and shabby with pink, brown, cream and a little green. Keeping that in mind, I pulled out beautiful Melissa Frances papers, pearls, stickers, chipboard and rub-ons, Rusty Pickle buttons and ribbon, Prima flowers, my Fiskar's punch and lots of glitter and paint to create this keepsake box. I dusted the buttons ("spice") with a sprinkling of "sugar" (Pink Paislee glitter), included a lot of PINK, and tied it all up with something SOFT (cream tulle and brown ribbon). I LOVE the way this turned out and can't wait to create some more projects for their room.
