Mother's Day Blog Hop!!

Welcome to our Mother's Day blog hop. We are making some great projects that will hopefully inspire you to make some beautiful crafts for whomever you cherish on Mother's Day. If you came here from Jennifer then you are in the right place. If not start at the beginning at Jamie's blog for all the wonderful projects lined up for you today. 

Two Fridays ago, I made a mini album for my mom, (You can see it here).  She loves when I make things for her and I know she'll carry the mini album in her purse until I send her a new one. 
My mom also loves  flowers, that's why I knew besides the mini album, I had to make something with flowers on it. I saw a beautiful frame on an online edition of Scrapbook Trends Magazine , but I decided to decorate a wooden box  instead of a frame. I'm also using the same line of papers I used in the mini album. ( I love Cosmo Cricket).

I painted the box red, one of my mom's favorite colors.  The scalloped border
just goes on the sides and front of the box,  I skipped the back so the box can get open.

Here are two more views:

I can't wait to see what my mom says about her gifts.
Now to find a way to mail it making sure it will get to my mom intact, any suggestions?

OK, to continue hopping, please visit  Rebecca's Blog  I know she'll have something very special to show you!!!

Thanks for your visit...

Here is the line up in case you need it.

This box is gorgeous! Thanks for the hop! I'm a follower

Have a wonderful Easter!


wow Tere, qué bonito, si se lo piensas mandar a tu mami , creo que en una caja vendrá mejor y tendrás que envolver tu proyecto varias veces en ese plastiquito de burbujas, pero el de las burbujas grandes creo, así le llegará sano y salvoooooooooo, me encantó!

Your Mom will love it. It is awesome. I would lightly wrap bubble wrap around it and make the sure the box is cushioned and full so it can't move around. Good luck and thanks for sharing
