A Fabulous Guest Designer For You Today!! :)

Happy WONDERFUL Wednesday to all of my fabulous friends!! :)  Today, I have an EXTRA-SPECIAL treat for you!! :)  While I am busy planning and preparing for the BIG Graduation Party for The-Girl-Child, I have asked a few of my favorite friends to be Guest Designers here on my blog...

I hope you will join me in welcoming today's special guest...  My dear friend and co-host of the Decorate To Celebrate! Challenge Blog...  Rhonda of Scrap Happens!!  :)  YAY, Rhonda!!  I was introduced to Rhonda a while ago when I happened across her blog after she entered a challenge I had also entered...  I was so amazed at the project she had entered that I just HAD to go over and check out all of the details!!  Well, that was it -- When I saw all of her incredible (and I mean the fabulous, amazing, creative, spectacular kind of incredible) mini albums that she made, I was SPEECHLESS!!  Each week I would DROOL over the beautiful min albums she would post...  And then, she invited me to participate in her very first blog hop!!  Oh my goodness, I was ECSTATIC!!  Rhonda has been such an amazing source of inspiration to me for many, many, many months...  So when she approached me about starting a challenge blog dedicated to party decorations -- Well, who could refuse???  For every challenge, Rhonda comes up with the most inspiring creations!!  I'm pretty sure the main tool in her craft room is a Magic Wand -- Cuz everything she creates is MAGICAL to me!! :)  And so....

Without further ado...  I give you Rhonda from Scrap Happens with Rhonda!!  (I'm giddy with excitement for her project today!!):

Here is my Minnie mouse box favors. I used tags, bags and boxes cartridge for the cake box, cut at 8 in.  Cut 12.  I cut in wht, pink and blk

Assemble all on round cake board, Then take a ribbon measure around box then make the tutu, I used the tulle in the rolls, easy to work with and cut. After the tutu is done then I measured the black and white dotted ribbon and attached in back. Add a rose which I made from the scallop punches.

For the big Minnie on top of cake take a lg stryofoam ball cut off some at bottom to sit flat. Then paint blk let dry. Cut 8 in ears from mickey and friends cart  cut two so you can put a tooth pick in middle and glue together and stick into the foam.

Make your bow and glue a toothpick on back and stick in foam.  I think this turned out super cute I am making these for my granddaughters birthday which is in Dec, but the thought came to me. Thank you Amy for having me as a guest designer on your blog.  I am honored.

WOWZERS!!  Rhonda, I am honored that you agreed to be a Guest Designer...  You know I just LOVE your creativity!! :)   For those of you that have never seen Rhonda's mini albums, here are a few of my favorites:
Rhonda made this as a gift for my mom!!  SO CUTE!! :)
Rhonda made this one for ME!!  Hmmm... 
Does this look like something I would like?  Or LOVE??? :)
The Wizard of Oz -- SO CUTE!! :)
How creative is this one???
So now that you've seen just a TOUCH of what Rhonda creates, it would mean SO much to me if you would pop over to her blog (click here) and show her some bloggie-love -- Become a follower (if you're not already) and leave a comment!!  I'll be sending a RAK to one person who does (so be sure to tell her that you're stopping over after you saw her here, so I know who to draw from!!)...  And if you would like to be considered for a future Guest Designer spot, please leave a link to your blog in the comments on this post so I can come visit you too!! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today to celebrate one of my favorite friends!! :)  See y'all over at Rhonda's!! :)

Until next time,
