The 'Berry' Best Friends


Welcome back to The Open Window on a very special day!


The designers of The Twinery are playing along with the
designers of Bella Blvd to bring you a very inspiring week
of creativity using their beautiful papers, stamps & embellishments
and our fabulous baker's twine.

You'll want to make sure you stop by and check out
each day because there are some pretty fabulous Sampler Packs
going out to a lucky winner this week...THREE to be exact !
{ more details below }


I love the beautiful 'Sunshine Happiness' papers from Bella Blvd.
The cherries are so very 'sweet' and of course, I called on one of
my favorite methods for using our baker's twine from The Twinery.
I used Maraschino and Pink Sorbet.  Really makes my mouth water !

The background was embossed using the 'Berries' EF from Cuttlebug.
The sentiment is from Bella as well.


I had so hoped to get at least one more project done for this event
before my dental surgery, but it just didn't happen.
I can assure you that there are plenty of fun & fabulous designs from
all the participating designers from The Twinery & Bella Blvd, so make
plans to stop by each day and check them out.

How would you like a chance to win one of our fab prizes ?


Each day, make sure you stop by The Twinery blog
and leave a comment there as well as the two designers' blogs
featured each day.  Yep ... only 2 per day!
To make it even easier, you will have through Sunday.
Our winners will be drawn at random and the good news is,
there are even additional chances to win, so check out all
the details on The Twinery Blog.

Don't forget to leave a little love before you go
and I hope you really enjoy the inspiration from all of
the participating designers this week.
