''Sing Little Birdie''

Hi, have to tell you am not best pleased with my alteration for Happy Daze of this Wooden Pencil Box and am late putting this March project on my blog.....sorry......But sometimes it doesn't always work out as planned does it...........boo hoo



Products used:   Pencil Box - available at Happy Daze, Masking Tape, Viva Croco Crackling, Mountboard Squares, Acrylic Paint, Charms and the stamps are by TJ Designs.

But like the Bird in the picture am going to sing a Happy Tune because I can't whistle........totally rubbish at that.........lol   and move on to the next project and hope I can do better...........
Take care of yourselves and hope to see you soon. Hugs Annette x
