Someone's Got Mail....

I had some happy mail this week when the paper pack I won from Jacksonbelle showed up at my door. It is the Coquette Collection from Prima and it is great paper, it is paper I would never purchase if I saw it in the store just not my style, but what fun it was stepping out of my box again. This is the saying from the part of the paper I wrapped around my mailbox..."Whatever is good, whatever is pure, whatever is found to be excellent, let your mind think on these things."

This mailbox is a first for me, and I did find it semi difficult to get around the flag and this part took sometime but after I figured it out clear skies from there on in. The paper pack also came with matching flowers so on the ends I reversed the paper to show the polka dots, then I cut out a frame that was collaged into the other side of the paper and layered some flowers to go inside the frame, love how that turned out.

This project will be on its way to my Secret Sister this round for Valentine's Day she listed her fave color as purple so I am sure it will be a hit.

This will be the final Valentine post for a couple of days just a small break, I have two swaps closing at the end of next week and I am going to be busy with them but no worries the Series will return. What has been your Fave post so far in the Re-Purposed Valentines series?

Happy Stamp Day!
