Altered box, book mark and card

Hello Crafters!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I am!!  I didn't have to work this Saturday so it's like a long weekend for me.  I'll take it!  Gives me time to play catch up with my crafts.  But enough of me.  Today I wanted to share with you my project for a swap at MyScrapRoom.  The challenge is to altered a box.   I used the Ladies Diary paper by Graphic 45.  Flowers are from I am Roses and Wild Orchids.  I love the oval frame from Melissa Frances.  I cut a piece of the paper with the lady, inserted it and added some glossy accent.  Lots of bling and yes, that's because I'm also entering this for challenge #36 at Latinas en America.  The challenge is adding pearls and bling.  So I did. I added a  few pears and of course a cameo.  I thought the ornate plate with a phrase from the paper line was a great touch also.  Gave it some legs and Ta-da!

I then made my partner a bookmark.  Everyone needs a book mark.  Right?  Made it with the same paper line.  I used a recollection flower, trim and lace.

But wait!  There is more.  One of my daughters called me this morning and said "Hi mom! I need a baby shower card.  Can you make me one"  I say "yes, of course.  When do you need it by."  "Today!! I'll be there in an hour, is that ok?"  
So I run to my craft room and a little more then an hour this is what I came up with.....  Mom to the rescue, again!!!!!

I used Graphic 45 paper.  Little Darling.  Gosh I love those cute images!

Thank you all so much for stopping by.
I would love to hear from you.
