Onto my Red Carpet Report...

Good morning.  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Here is my official Red Carpet Repot:  Anyone a fan of the MTV Movie Awards?  LOL!!  I cannot sit that long to watch an award show.  But gotta love Channing Tatum.  He is so dreamy!!!  What? A "nail art cam"!  Now you all have seen my nails in my YouTube Videos, sometimes they look great and are all Shellacked and other times they look like a train wreck!  But really?, we are now resorting to a nail art cam!  Hahaha  Gotta love Hollywood!

On to the amazing sneek peak for Sheena a Taste Of India exclusively at Crafter's Companion.  I have used A Taste Of India-Mandala.  This flower is so unique and pretty.  My background is mono-printed with acrylic paints and then stenciled with a striped stencil from MFT.  Then I splattered on the Firework Sprays!  I finished it off with a sentiment from the Crafter's Companion Sentimentials-Imagine.

Thanks for stopping in.  Hope you enjoyed this sneek peak!  Stay tuned for more inspiration from the Sheena Taste of India during our blog hop on April 17th.
