It is the first Monday of the month and the theme this month is craft items to give as gifts!  I love to make all sorts of things to give.  I love doing trays that I can personalize for each person.  This is a project that takes time and lots of love!  I got my tray from McGuffey Woodworking.  They cost a little more but are made well and backs come off so you can work on a flat surface!

 I started by painting all the backgrounds with LuminArte Silks.  Love these iridescent paints.  I just played on the backgrounds as I was going to stencil and glitter over each background.

LG 631 Floral pattern

LL 3018 Hope character lrg

LX 7010 Flower quatrefoil

LX 7011 Big dots

LX 7013 Pinwheel checkerboard

LJ 896 Large flourish

 I accented the front of the tray with the Crystal Sheets from Connie Crystal.  Love this product for cards and 3D projects.  Just fantastic!
