Lots to share!

*** Scroll down to yesterday's post for info on my TWO HUGE giveaways!!***

So today, I have a couple different projects to share...both involve Punky Sprouts and both involve exchanges with other companies :) Curious yet? Read on...

First up, is a LO for my monthly Punky Sprouts project. We had a product exchange with Paper Trunk (they were soooo generous and sent us a ton of gorgeous goodies!). To have fun with the exchange, we're sharing all the projects on the Punky Sprouts blog(today is my day) and the Paper Trunk blog. If you go there, and collect the "secret" word each day, you can enter to win some fun goodies, so be sure to play along!

I decided to use the "Rockabilly" collection. I used the paper, the metal flair, and the laser-cut chipboard from the collection. For the letters "Ms." I used the "Billy" alphabet by Paper Trunk. I also used canvas roll-up flowers by Punky Sprouts and canvas banners by Punky Sprouts (which I used as a banner up top, as well as to make the two leaves for the larger roll-up flower). I used the new Tim Holtz Distress Stains to color the flowers and banners - because the stain is so wet, it made the canvas very wet and pliable, which made it easier to manipulate and gave it an even more distressed feel. The Paper Trunk flair buttons make a perfect center for Punky Sprouts rolled flowers. And I think putting eyelets in the banner gave it a little bit more of a finished, detailed feel.

Ok, now on to my second project for today. Prepare for a ton of pics :) This one is for My Little Shoebox, using the "Pretty Little Things" line. The DT got goodies from Punky Sprouts! LOL I chose to participate because one can never have too many Punky Sprouts goodies! I got the Trunk Punky mini to play with, and I made a Spring 2011 mini album.
