Elephant Mini

Good morning

I do not have a "crafty by me" post today...I know, you are saying "REALLY?", but yes, really, I don't.  I really can't believe it myself, but I've been so busy making things for some upcoming hops and guest design spots that I haven't done anything just for myself.  Speaking of upcoming hops...I hope you will all come back here on October 8th and celebrate my birthday with me and some VERY talented ladies.  I'm so excited about the ladies that have agreed to join me for a Birthday Wishes Blog Hop.
Birthday Wishes Hop
Amy from Love to Crop made this button for me.
Isn't it just the cutest.  THANK YOU AMY!!!

So, onto my post for today.  As you may remember I submitted my Paper Cake Favor boxes over at Decorate to Celebrate and I won!!!!  Yeah for me...well the prize was one of Rhonda's famous minis.  I went out to her blog and looked at all the minis she has made and we emailed back and forth a couple of time.  Man oh man, she is talented...We finally decided on an Elephant (since I collect a lot of them) and my favorite colors are pink and this is what came in the mail mind you, remember I said it was a mini?  Well, I don't know what Rhonda thinks is a Maxi, but to me this sure was.  The Book is 9.5 inches tall by 7.5 inches wide...I do NOT consider this to be a mini.  There is a cover 12 inside pages and a back cover.

 Isn't this just amazing?  She hand cuts everything, inks it all and pens it if you'd like a mini make sure you head on over to Decorate to Celebrate and enter into their challenges.  You won't be sorry, I guarantee it!!!
