Day Two!

Today is day two in our journey to the final product of the altered mailbox tin. This is the part I had the most fun with...decorating! I used some more paper from the Loves Me designer paper in the Winter mini and some Taken with Teal cardstock to make the 'center' decoration. The little brown strip has the word 'Loves Me Loves Me Not' running through it. I thought it was center but when you look at it...it isn't. Oh, well...I can get past it! On the edges of the front and back I used Taken with Teal velvet ribbon (fun stuff!) from the Flirty Ribbon Originals in the Winter Mini and used sticky tape to attach it. I would suggest decorating your mailbox front flap prior to putting your ribbon on the front.

Tomorrow I will show you the flag and front of the mailbox...my favorite parts!

I want to share with you one of my favorite songs right now. It is a Third Day song called Mountain of God. If you click on it you will go to a YouTube slideshow that features the song. Even in our hardest times...He is always with us! Enjoy!

Have a fantastic Friday!

Could thing you are keeping us all in suspense by only posting in daily increments. We'd all be blown away if you just posted everything at once.

Good Job!
