Dt reveal for the Hens Den

I had a lot of fun with the project that I was able to do for the Hens Den. I was able to make a mini album using the Maya Road canvas mini album and the Pink Paisley Soiree line.
What I did with the canvas part of the outside of the album was use glimmer mist to give it some color, blues and pink. I also did the chipboard inside of the album.
I punched a hole in the pocket of the front of the album and used fiber to hang the chandelier pieces that come with this line. I also added a flower.
The two inside pocket shapes in the album that are canvas I used Distress stain by Tim Holtz that is called broken china.
Decorating each page with pp from the Soiree line, adding stickers, banners and wood pieces also colored with the distress stain. Everything to make this album can be found at the Hens Den store (HERE) with the exception of just a few things that I used out of my stash, little tiny rose bud flowers, fiber and some bling.
Do head on over to the store and check it out, there is also a special this month for 20% off all orders through the end of July.

Pretty bad wind storm Thursday night

caused a power outage from Thursday night through Saturday night. Just got my power back up late last night. Had no idea how bad the damage was since I was not able to watch the news, but Friday morning I drove around my neighborhood which is very close to our beaches by Lake Michigan and was amazed at the amount of trees that were totally destroyed. I do not believe that there was anyone that was seriously injured during this storm, but there sure was alot of property damage. So I will share a couple of pictures for you to see the trees that were HUGE and just ripped out of the ground. I have alot more pictures because I just couldn't stop taking photos of every single tree that was uprooted that I saw because it just shocked me., I have never seen anything like this before in person.
