To Be or Not to Be...


That is the question...

Ever since I saw the little double milk carton crate that was made by Becky Roberts, I've been dying to make one! - Her tutorial was super easy to follow. But then I had to decide what to put on it, and what colors to use. My biggest challenge is always to use something other than my favorites (Crumb Cake and Baja!).


So anyway, I went with Regal Rose, So Saffron and Soft Suede for the colors. And I decided to use the Clearly for You set - Luuvv it!! :)

But then.... I wanted to use the Paper Daisies. So I went to town on the daisies - Smooch Pearlized Paint, textured and sponged the centers, added an antique brad. So, I love how they came out... until... I added them to the milk cartons!

I think they either look like fried eggs, or big ol' buggy eyes!! Hmmm...


So then, maybe they look better with no flowers?? Still dunno?? Maybe a cute little tag? Probably a work in progress for now...


But I do like how the little medallion thingy came out for the base of the crate! I love these little birdies! And yes, that little paper daisy is what started the whole fried egg thing?!?!?.....

OK, so just give in to one of those kinda days!


To be continued..... (and possibly finished, or decided upon...)

PS - Hey, maybe some Crumb Cake Milk Cartons would solve it?! :)
