Pink Saturday and Glittery Fun

Happy Pink Saturday Everyone. I wanted to show you a cute little box that I made. I bought this kit from Holly at Holly Doodle Designs at least a year ago, and finally got around to making it. I think it turned out so sweet. It is the softest shade of Pink. Just perfect for Pink Saturday, don't ya think?? Thanks again to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting this fabulous day.I also wanted to pass along some wonderful news. Laurie Davis the original Glitter Fairy has her fabulous ornaments in none other than Neiman Marcus. She did a line of ornaments for Eliot Raffet Ribbon Company, and they were sent out to the stores this week. Check out her blog for more wonderful pictures and info. I feel so fortunate to have taken a class with Laurie at Tinsel Trading in New York. She is one busy lady, and I'm proud to call her a friend. (I blogged about her on my very first post).
My husband heard the story, and took me to lunch on Friday to pick up a couple of these beauties. The quality of the work is amazing. They are so much more beautiful in person. My pictures did not do them justice.
The ribbon is the most beautiful Champagne color..... I love that each tag says that they are handmade in the USA!! You don't hear that often, now do you??
I hope that everyone visits Beverly to see all of the other wonderful blogs that are participating in Pink Saturday.
Have a lovely day.

What a sweet little wedding box!

And the ornaments are just fabulous - so elegant and simple. Love 'em!
