Thank You Michelle

I was so excited to meet Michelle today...not just because I was going to pick up my goodies that I won from her (WOOHOO) but also because I LOVE visiting her blog and seeing all of the fabulous things that she makes. She is also the very first blog friend I have met in person!! It was so nice to meet her and her beautiful daughter too. They are both just the sweetest and her daughter was just so adorable with her pink shades on top of her head and holding her own little purse.

When I got home and dove into all of the things I had won, I was in heaven!! There were a bunch of beautiful DP (I'm so obsessed with paper), 6 rolls of ribbon, a set of buttons, a set of fabric flowers, a Hello Kitty Sizzix die, a So Girly! Chloe Sizzix die, an owl Sizzix die, the sock monkey SU stamp set (which I had been eyeing up), an adorable Magnolia stamp (my very first one), a scrapping kit, a sparkle rub-on's set, some really pretty K&Co. stickers, a set of foam letters stamps, and last but definitely not least, a beautiful framed personalized monogram creation made by Michelle herself. WHEW...what a bunch of great stuff huh? Thank you again Michelle so very much for your generosity! I absolutely LOVE Hello Kitty and was so happy to have won this great piece of art Michelle made!
With all of the goodies Michelle was so generously giving to me, I didn't want to meet her empty handed. So last night I put together a simple arrangement (using my Cricut) to let her know how thankful I was!!
I added some bling to Hello Kitty by adding some pearls and Stickles here and there
To help the "Thank You" stand out, I used my glitter paper (that I got from Target) for the letters, backed it with some yellow cardstock, and adhered the white circle behind it using some thick pop dots so that I could stick the skewers through it.
