Just Us Girls 103 ....I've got cute kleenex!

Join the JUGs girls this week for a fall fabulous box MAKEOVER! Our talented Maria has come up with a super fun challenge.  Be sure to head over to Just Us Girls for the details and please join us.

This project had me reminiscing about the crocheted Kleenex box cozies that adorned every best dressed guest bathroom from my childhood!  Anyone else remember these fondly with me?  So I am no magic maker with a crochet hook but I've got paper and embellies and I am confident you do too so I hope you'll take the challenge and whip up something fall-ish!

Check out the girls and all the magic they've made...

AND our rockstar guest designer for the month of September, Monique Hansen!  Monique, it has been a pleasure to have you!!

Cute Kleenex? YOU? I just love that you HAVE Kleenex! BUT, yes, seeing your be-sparkles, shabbilicious style and spin on this lovely project just makes a girl swoon! [And yearn for some SERIOUS Autumnal crafting! - Hey, this would be a fun 4H project, now that we're talking! *wink!] Love it, girrrrllll!
