City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #106 ~ A Little Rough Around the Edges

Hi ALL!  It is Cheryl back this week as hostess and I have picked for a theme "A Little Rough Around the Edges".  Sometimes a little roughness adds interest and beauty to someone or something.  With that in mind...our challenge to you is this...add a little burlap on your project somewhere.  I just love the look of burlap...that little bit of roughness...of texture it can add to a project.  Sooooo don't be scared to be a little rough around the edges and grab ahold of some burlap and get going.  I can't wait to view your projects this week!

Week 106 ~ A Little Rough Around the Edges

Guest Designer

Get to know Michelle......

Hello everyone! It's such a pleasure to be here at City Crafter Challenge Blog!!! I'm Michelle, wife of 12 years to my awesome husband Chris, mom to 3 super kids, Emma, Natalie and Christopher,  and lover of all crafts!!! I've been crafting since I was little, because of my mom, who loves to craft! I started my first blog post in October of 2010 and have loved every second of it! Cards are my favorite but I am beginning to love creating home decor and gifts. There is nothing better than reading comments from wonderful people like you, who too, have a passion for crafting!! Thank you, Kirsty!
