ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

Cre8tiveGirls Blogoversary!!!

Happy First Anniversary Yvette!

Hello Friends and welcome to my Twins First Blogoversary!!! If you've come here from Giselle's blog you are in the right place, if not you can start this hop at my sister's blog HERE
I'm so excited to be celebrating this milestone with her and how fun that we are having a weekend long BLOG HOP!!!! A very talented group of crafters has joined us this weekend and created projects around the theme of FIRSTS. I hope you enjoy this long weekend celebration and the projects we have all created for Yvette!

For todays project I decided to try my hand at using Mod Podge for the very first time. I pick up a very cute acrylic candy holder at Michaels and thought it would look amazing covered in sparkly candies. 

Here is how I designed my project using my gypsy, the Celebrations and From my Kitchen Cartridges and my Expression...

then I cute everything out on my Cricut Expression using DCWV Glitter papers.

I then Mod Podged the acrylic candy box, added some ribbon and TA DA!!!
Here is my project in all it's glory... 
Not bad for my very first time!

The Mod Podge isn't perfectly clear and hides some of the glitter but I think overall it's a fun project that ANYONE could do.

And how CUTE is that tiny candy scoop! LOVE IT!

I hope you enjoyed my project today ~ now please hop on over to my very creative friend DORIS who is the next stop in the hop today!

And just in case you get lost along the way ~Here is the rest of the line up!
