Interrupt our normal program

Sometimes I just feel like taking a break from whatever I'm used to doing; change it up if you will.

I've been wanting to do one of these altered printer trays from 7Gypsies for so long I cannot even tell you.  But, its like so many of the projects that I have swirling around in my head, I just never got around to it.  So, I put my Copics down for a little bit, and picked up the tray.

Originally, i was going to put my daughters' pictures in the boxes, but then an epiphany hit me and it changed the course of my tray altogether.  I'm so happy I went with my new idea and how it turned out.

The papers are from the Prima Almanac Collection.  I've used some Momenta corners and metal pieces including the dream square in the top right box and the bird cage in the bottom left one.  I was so happy to use up some of my old stash that has been sitting around in my craft drawers like the cherish and wedding sticker.  The flowers are a mix of Recollections and Petaloo.  I used a Heidi Swapp and Inkadinkadoo stamp for the sentiment and butterfly box.  There are some Wilton doilies and Recollections pearls floating about.  I used a fiskars punch in the top right box and my Cricut to cut out the heart for the top left one.  My cricut also cut out the fancy photo corners. In the bottom right corner, I glued some American Crafts black and white twine to the tiny Maya Roads spools.

This was such a super fun and quick project once the Mojo hit.  I'm over the moon that our grandparents, who meant the world to us, will finally be on our wall in our home.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hoping you have a wonderful day.
