My friend Valerie found this pretty ugly worn cabinet door at the flea market. She knew I would love it so she picked it up and surprised me with it. After a little cleaning, sanding, painting and waxing, it has turned from Shab to Fab! Thanks Val!!
My mother's gift was rather large. I wrapped it in brown kraft paper and used tulle to make the roses. To make the leaves, I used tattered leaves die cut from Tim Holtz. I folded them and used brown ink at the creases.
