CHA re-cap 10 of 10 & a ** Giveaway! **

 Have you heard about Charity Wings ? I'm sure you have, on Face book, at a scrapbook event or just here and there.
The head of Charity Wings is my good friend Elena Lai Etcheverry. She is SO talented, sweet, kind and a true friend. I'm honored to know her and contribute to her events whenever I can. It's the least I can do for all her hard work. Please sign up for the Charity Wings Newsletter! So much great stuff!
 Here she is sporting some stunning wings created by Grace Lauer. Whom hand cut the fringe on each individual feather! Do you see the sparkling chandelier crystals she put into the wings?

 See the wings from behind.
And with a quick pull of a cord, the wings expand!

CHA re-cap 6 of 10

So here is another smattering of photos from CHA! Only 4 more posting to go...the last being the custom craft apron giveaway! You can see details on how to win here.
Now about these photos....
The boy and girl prom outfits were made entirely of Duct Tape! You should totally check out last years creations here and enter for your chance to win great products this March!
The gelato was free and served in the cutest little cups. I have a dairy intolerance so I had to settle for the decadent chocolate cake while my friend had the coconut. :)
I love the altered bottles and see that purple dress? Made entirely of the ribbing of paper plates and then painted purple. Don't you also just love the matching Mosaic purple shoes?
~ Don't forget to leave a comment and I'll see you again with CHA re-cap #7!

CHA recap- 4 of 10


As some of you know, I'm on my 2nd year blogging weekly for The Robins Nest!
I really love all their glitter embossed papers,glittered chip boards and dew drops!
I'm in crafting heaven!
This past CHA, I did a demo on the first day, Sunday.
We made Paris luggage tags from their new travel line.





 50% of the booth displays were made by myself and the other designers that post on The Robins Nest blog. This beautifully adorned box below was created by Robin-one of the owners. Isn't lovely?



 Love these Dew Drops!

 Here is Mother/Daughter owners, Robin and Rachel.

 I wore a crown I made with The Robins Nest Glittered Chipboards! I received many compliments from it!
Please visit the rest of the CHA post, at the end of this month, I'm having a giveaway! :)
