CHIPBOARD MADNESS! Welcome to the Scrap Fx Blog Hop!!

HELLO!!!
Welcome, welcome chipboard lovers!
It's so great to finally share my LOVE for Scrap FX with people who understand!

My name is Michelle.
I'm living it up in Brooklyn, NY, USA with husband Dave and STAR of the show: Miss Lola.

I was over the moon when I heard I would be joining the Scrap FX design team!
I then did a double take when I saw the work of my fellow team mates.

My Analog Life Blog Hop Special- A wedding themed mini kit!
Just follow and leave a comment letting me know!
Ok onto my special project for today.
You'll see several versions of the Shadow Box on the hop- they are SPECTACULAR!
Perfect for a Mother's Day Gift and a real challenge for an everyday moments scrapper like me.
This one is on it's way to Grandma's House.
 I painted the box light grey and used coarse texture gel to add a chevron surface texture to the
frame but realized the final look was too edgy for a baby project so the buttons went on top.
 I FINALLY got rid of all those pink and mint green buttons!!! WHEW!
Quick detail shots:
Scrap FX script font wordletts are delicate but wonderfully durable!
This one went through misting, pastel crayons direct to surface and finally heat
 embossing with Stampendous Shabby Chic powder before I decided on a look.
Teeny tiny 2 and a half inch shoes! THE CUTENESS! 
I just layered the buttons all willy nilly.
I used Zip Dry paper glue.My glue gun would have been
great but it gets too messy for small items like buttons.  

Thanks for joining the Scrap FX blog hop and for joining me here on My Analog Life!

Now off you go to ooh and ahh over Misty's latest project over at: www.myscraptherapy.com

MuChoS SmOoChEs!
