Project Parade - The Finale

It's the last day of our parade, and we're finishing off strong with a special little project by Guest Diva Teresa Kline. Remember, you still have until tomorrow night (5/14) to get your entries in to be eligible to win a $25 Verve gift certificate! Here's a little bit about Teresa's project in her own words...




Hello girls, it's Teresa and I am so honored to bring you the last project of the It's A Girl Thing Project Parade. Haven't the divas brought you some fabulous creations? I chose my Mother to honor, she has taught me so much and for that I am grateful. She started encouraging me as a young girl to write notes of care and thank you notes. I collected the pretty boxes full of stationary made by the gold crown company when I was very young. I would send notes to my friends, always send thank you notes after birthdays and holidays, and greetings cards to relatives as I got older.



I have always been attracted to boxes, tins and keepsake holders; which brings me to my keepsake box full of handmade cards. These boxes are totally awesome, I got them from Taylored Expessions. I used Verve's Because of You and Circular Sayings sets as well as the Matthew 11:28 and Psalm 46:10 Plain Jane stamps to embellish the box and create my cards. I used this beautiful dp from My Minds Eye called French Flea Market, a checkered brown ribbon and the gorgeous chocolate pearls from Kaiser. I hope you like my girly keepsake box, it was fun to create and reminisce about the past and the things my Mom has taught me.



It's been so exciting to be a Verve guest diva this month and I'm so excited that Julee asked me to stay as a guest diva for the May release as well! I'll see ya at the next release party!

You still have one more day to play along with us! Just make a project or card that fits your style and celebrates a woman in your life. It can be any woman ... mom, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, teacher - you get the idea! To enter, add your project link to the Mr. Linky form IN THIS POST before 8PM Mountain on Thursday, May 14th. Two random participants will be chosen and win $25 gift certificates to the Verve Store. Have fun and good luck!

Thanks for stopping by!
