Refrigerator Magnets Blog Hop April 7th

What could be more fun than decorating? Isn’t that what we all do in some form weather it is our photos or projects..
This month as you can see the Krazy Crafting Crew has gotten together and made inspiring refrigerator magnets! Spring clean means spring d├ęcor to me!
We all hope you find a little inspiration along the way today
Magnets can be done so many different ways… the sky is the limit!
Our hostess today is Cicily at

If you have already been on the hop, and have arrived from Ciclily, you are in the right place!

 For my project, I used the top of an old Creative Memories Tin.  I also used Lindy's Gang inks to color the inside and used green stickers for additional fun.  The beautiful Butterfly was made by Jess -, and I received it last year in a swap.  The Butterfly has been sprayed with beautiful bronze and blue, and also embossed.  Now, I can enjoy the beautiful Butterfly every day!
