I'll do my best to take care of you

For today's Retro Cafe Art Design Team project, I've created this glitter shrine using their Exquisite Shrine and the Best Friends Collage Sheet. Some exciting news for all, at Retro Cafe Art, they are having an amazing shrine contest with  4... count them 4,  $50.00 prizes! Even a free gift for spreading the word! Here's the link with all the info for the Shrine Contest at Retro Cafe Art. Think of how this prize could make your stash the best ever!  So this is me.... doing my best to take care of you. At the end of my post there are rules too.

To make today's project I glittered each layer of the shrine and set them aside. I put the 3 lovely bathing beauties and added the water colored sentiment "Ill do my best to take care of you" on the bottom layer. After gluing the layers together I added some blue german scrap shells  and some glitter shells. On the Shrine I added a star fish with a rhinestone, a colored shell for the back and a tiny beach umbrella. It's really a drink umbrella! LOL.

"I'll do my best to take care of you."

Below are the rules from Kristin at Retro Cafe Art., you really must check it out.
