Good Morning My Friends!
Welcome to another Decorate To Celebrate Challenge #74; Mother's Day or Birthday. This idea has been floating around in my head for quite some time. When I saw Graphic 45's "By the Sea" I knew this would be the perfect gift for a beach cottage.
The tray is the KaiserCraft Carry Tray #SB2258. If you go to their site; they have instructions for putting it together including the size to cut the paper. The candles are remote controlled, I really like them; they give the mood of candles without having to worry about fire. I bought a necklace for $2.99, took it apart and tied pieces of it around the candles with twine to give them a nautical look.
I filled the inside of the tray with rust & white raffia and lots of sea shells.
I added lots of decoration to the outside. Most of it is from the Graphic 45 "By the Sea" collection; some of it is "fussy cut" from the paper; I also added a Tim Holz bottle of sand, some real seashells, a stickpin, a flair button from ScrappyKDesigns and an anchor and key that I cut out on my Cameo Silhouette.
Here it is all lit up! whooooo! Can you tell that I am really having fun making these beach projects?
I would like to wish all of the mother's out there a wonderful Mother's Day! If you are making something for your mother, grandmother, sister or daughter. I hope you will share it with us on Decorate To Celebrate. I can't wait for you to see what the other gals have created! Wow!
