Cute & Girly with The Crafty Pad

Super Sunday folks!

It is time for a new challenge with
The Crafty Pad!

This week we are getting
Cute & Girly!
 This is my favourite challenge theme,
so I would love if you played along with us!

I don't think you can get any girly than nail files can you???
So I took this challenge to the max and made a gorgeous
Nail File Holder for my Mother In Law
as yes, another one of her birthday pressies.
(Yep, I do love my MIL)

 The front.

Front view.

Keeping with my tradition I have again gone with the vintage, shabby distressed look.  And I again have fallen in love with this peice and don't want to part with it.  All things cute and girly went into this project, there is some adorable posh pins, lace, pearls, flowers, key charm and love charm!  I love these papers in this piece and will deffinately have to get some more!

I used Penny Pamper from The Crafty Pad Digital Images and she just goes perfectly with this set.  My MIL loves her nail files and I usually just pop them in an envelope and send them over to her and this really makes a recuring gift even more special now knowing she has somewhere nice to store them and to display them on her dutchess.  

This week our generous sponsor is ....
