I used some of the twine that is available in Jessi's Etsy Shop, she has tons of great stuff. 

For my project I made a banner for my daughter's room.  She is a teenager so she can be a little bit:


Yes, she actually asked me to make her the banner!  I used CTMH Avonle papers and Cappucino bakers twine from Jessi's Etsy Shop.

KCC - Altered Refrigerator Magnets

What could be more fun than decorating? Isn’t that what we all do in some form whether it is our photos or projects..
This month as you can see the Krazy Crafting Crew has gotten together and made inspiring refrigerator magnets! Spring clean means spring d├ęcor to me!
We all hope you find a little inspiration along the way today
Magnets can be done so many different ways… the sky is the limit!
Our hostess today is Cicily

If you have already been on the hop, and have arrived from JANET, you are in the right place!
If not please start at the beginning with Cicily so you don't miss a thing!
For this hop I decided that I needed to have some flowers in the house so I made some flower magnets.  These were so quick and easy that it wouldn't take much to have an entire refrigerator full of them.  The orange flower is made by punching out (or using a die cutting machine) 3 different sized flowers, crinkling them a bit then stackkng them together.  Add a button in the middle and there you go.  The other flower is a simple rose that I cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge and then rolling it.  Add magnets on the back and you have an instant "flower bed"!

Your next stop is : KATINA
Thanks so much for hopping with us!
