Creative Journey - Mad Hatter Printer Tray

Creative Journey - Mad Hatter Printer Tray
Morning Friends,

Today I'm sharing a gift I made for my very sweet friend from Nebraska, Susie (aka Scrap Smart) from   Susie and I have become friends over the past few years and last year we were in a swap together.   She made me something so special it really lifted my spirits during a difficult time.   I really wanted to do something nice for her in return.   

Susie is very creative, adventurous, fun and loves both simple shabby chic and vintage styles.  When I saw this adventurous Mad Hatter paper collection by Marion Smith, I knew it was perfect for her project.  Susie has been patiently waiting for the weather to warm up so she can paint and decorate her new craft room.   I wanted to do something that she could display, that was fun and would make her smile.  Well, according to her, I succeeded on all accounts, she loves it!  And, that couldn't make me happier!

Here's a few close-ups of Susie's Mad Hatter Printer Tray titled "Creative Journey:"

I'm so happy that Susie loves her fun tray.   I love it too because it silly sayings and whimsy remind me of how the creative process works.  Which is why I titled it "Creative Journey."  Like Alice's big adventures, it makes me smile too.  

Well friends that is it for me this morning.  I hope you enjoyed this fun piece.  Thank you for dropping by today.   For those of you who have a few minutes to leave a comment, thank you very much.  I always appreciate hearing from you.   Create something from the heart and make it a special day!   Big Hugs ~ Dawna
