Guest Designer - Maria Calderone

We have a returning Guest Designer for this challenge. Please say hello and welcome back to Maria Calderone of Maria Lina's Creative Designs. Maria was the Design Team's Top Pick from the 'By the Sea' challenge.


"Hi everyone, Maria here from Maria Lina's Creative Designs, I’m so happy to be back as a guest designer, it’s always such a pleasure. As you might already know, I currently live in Pennsylvania, but was born and raised in New Jersey. I am so blessed to have a wonderful family of 4 boys, my husband and a puppy, they make everyday living so joyful and worthwhile."


"For the “Things with Wings” challenge, I was inspired to create a larger shabby chic tag with the thought of how time flies, especially now that summer is soon coming to an end. I don’t normally work with larger tags (#10) but I knew I wanted to use some birds, flowers and a clock, so the larger size worked out great.

I also challenged myself to use purple, one of my least favorite colors to work with when creating a project, but I came across this harlequin paper and thought I just had to, so purple it is. In the end, I was happy with how it turned out and I hope you are too! Have a great day!"

Pop on over to Maria's blog to get all the details of her wonderful tag and then come on back and show us your Things With Wings. You can find the challenge here and it runs until 11:55 pm EST on September 20th so there is lots of time to enter.
