    Super love them all….. So hard to pick a fave, but I really LoVe that framed window from Terri and the topiary from Michele! Heather’s tissue box cover and Laura’s canvas are also pretty rad. All of them are great. Yeah, so that’s my favorite! 🙂

  43. Cynthia B.

    Fun, colorful projects! My favorite is the You & Me layout by Tracy McLennon. 🙂

  44. Sheryl

    So many creative projects…but I REALLY think the “Framed Kitchen Window” by Terri Burson is creative OUTSIDE the box. Imagine putting that in a room that needs some color? You’ll have a faux window AND color. And those SHUTTERS…..How cute are THEY? I bet they work…lol. They sure look real. And those window lifters….you can put some positive messages in the label holder of those. YES….this is by far a project with great ingenuity in my perspective.
