Photo Star

First of all, I want to say thanks to all of you who were so kind with your comments on the menu board. And a big thanks to all the blogs who featured it. I had more traffic than I have ever had on this site. Made me feel loved;o)
I am so happy to have 100+ followers, so you know what that means....another give away!! I'll let you know what it will be on Tuesday(since Monday is a holiday).

So on to today's post. I told you guys about me participating in the Cultural Arts Fair with the Homemaker's club. I am going to be a demonstrator and will be showing those girls how to decorate on very little money:o) Along with the demonstrations, we have a chance to showcase our crafts, with the chance of winning and moving on to State. 
I saw this sweet little star over at Trey and Lucy. I knew that I had to make one and enter it. Here's mine:
The star came from Hobby Lobby, and right now their Wall decor is 50% off. And their scrapbook paper as well:o)
My star varies slightly from the original. Mine is not Christmas themed. I wanted to hang mine up year round. And I made the seams  tighter. I didn't leave any gaps....just a personal preference. 
I also used ink instead of craft paint to distress the edges. 
I am really happy about this star....and I kinda hope that it doesn't win, so that I can keep it hanging in my house:o)
I have to take the hubs for a little minor surgery today. I'll be nursing him back to health over the weekend, but I plan on hitting a community yard sale while he's snoozing;o) Hope you guys have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!!!!
