Let Them Eat Cake!!!!!!!

Of course, that was before she lost her head LOL!

I so enjoyed the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge I did the other day, I decided to do another! You should really go by and see this challenge! It's so much fun, and you are allowed to enter 3 times every challenge,,,,,,,this week's theme is TRASH TO VINTAGE/SHABBY CHIC TREASURE! you can find the challenge HERE!

So for this project, I chose the cardboard packaging that came with my LaBlanche stamps,,,,I had several such packaging that I thought just too pretty to toss in the trash, and so therefore, decided to use it for this project.

I've cut out the picture of Marie Antoinette in Labels 4, second to the largest,,,,and one of the packaging I cut with the largest labels 4 to nest behind the image. I cut another fancy shape from my cricut with some pink and white scraps,,and then mounted the entire thing onto one of the packaging, framing with an old black frame I had sitting around the house. A bit of lace, some pearls, a butterfly bow from blush satin ribbon,,,,,,,,,,some primas, a pink and white pearl stick pin and a few feathers, and really, this project was too simple. And I have no idea what to do with it LOL,,,,,,,but I think it's pretty, so I'll think of something!

I hope you enjoyed looking, and thanks so much for coming,,,,,I appreciate it far more than you know!


  1. How wonderful, a beautiful piece of home decor...I think it would be lovely in a bedroom! I agree that some packaging is just too pretty to go to the garbage men. Your bow is gorgeous and I love the addition of the feathers! Thanks for joining in again at Sugar Creek Hollow!
