The title was outlined in Copic markers to create a soft silhouette.
The photos are from last summer when we met Handyman Negri and Speedy Delivery Mr. McFeely from Mister Rogers Neighborhood. Doesn't it bring back childhood memories seeing their sweet faces?
They were just as kind as you'd imagine...

I used the awesome Noel Mignon "Playdate" kit and some products from her fun store to bring my idea to life. Her kits are AMAZING. I had to email her and express my joy when receiving my first kit! Her kits include an awesome compilation of the latest products. I liked how she allowed you to try many different embellishments by giving you smaller amounts of each one.
The flowers I made from ribbons in the kit and used this technique from Elizabeth Kartchner to create them.

If you are looking for a reputable charity to donate towards the Haiti disaster, I highly recommend this one:
Love a Child
We have sponsored a child through them for several years and I am very impressed with their program.
What I like about them is that they provide jobs to locals, educate the people to improve their quality of life, and help the Haitians be self-sufficient.
You can donate safely online, read the directors blog, view the latest update on the relief, see the children's school, orphanage, food distribution, medical center, etc.
If you scroll down on the website, you can see they are fully accredited as an EFCA registered charity and the financial accountability is some of the highest I've seen.
Thank you for considering this option, praying for the situation and sharing the link with your friends.
Checkout the fun & giveaways today at SHIMMERZ with their new release of Shimmerz Pearlz! They are giving away entire sets of the new Pearlz every hour for 12 hrs. starting at 10AM MST!
I hope I win a set because I just love all things with a PEARL finish. Yippee! Join in girls and post the announcement on your blog!
