Gen's Letters...

My dear friend Gen is a bit old fashioned...can you imagine, she'd rather write a letter or make a phone call to communicate with someone?!?!? *GASP*

Well - for me, this was a good thing...I had all these stationary sets from Papertrey sitting around because I *had* to have them, so I put one to use.
Gen's favorite color is blue, as she says it "Reminds me of the Blessed Mother" in her words, so I made sure to incorporate blue...she also LOVES sparkles...so there HAD to be bling involved...she's classy, so it had to be elegant, but not too busy...and she's proud of her family, so I wanted to incorporate that as well...and here's what we've got...




















All tied up with a little black organdy...I made my own box, but since it was my first attempt, it didn't turn out EXACTLY how I had hoped, so once I perfect it, I will share it.

The top of the box is vellum CS, and the flourish is accented with some bling from Doodlebug...take a closer look
















Now the last photo I'll share is the actual paper itself...it's monogrammed with her inital, and I used the same flourish as the box...perfect.

Thanks for stopping by!!
