Good Morning everyone!
I'm writing today's post with a little mixed emotions as we have to say goodbye to one of our DT members, Lovely Linda. She has played along with us here on Midnight Madness from the start, became a guest designer and finally a part of the MM team. My feelings are mixed because she has become such an integrel part of this team and is one of the most positive people I have met in blogland, and inspiring to everyone she comes into contact with. My sadness is partnered with happiness for her future endeavors as I know she is going to do amazing things. My best wishes go to Linda and I know she won't be a stranger around the blogging world. We love you Linda!

For my project this week I decided to alter a box and make it into a keepsake for something special! Not sure what that special something is yet but I'll find something! I started this by sponging the outside with a pretty "Natural Flourishes" stencil from Layers of Color in Martha Stewart ink Blue Sky.
 The flower center creation was made using Petaloo flowers "assorted Layers" and "Mini Rose clusters". I sponged them with the same Martha Stewart ink, then sparkled the edges with Stickles in Baby Blue and Waterfall.
Thank you for stopping by today, please visit the rest of the DT to leave them some love.
I want to end my post by sending out my thoughts and prayers to all our Norwegian friends who continue to pick up the pieces from the recent sad events.
