*for the love of kodak* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Happy Saturday EVERYONE!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Julie Tucker-Wolek here and I want to share with U what I have created with the most YUMMY kit....... Natural Living.... seriously YUM! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I wanted to alter a shadow box that I found at an antique store to show of my collection of new and vintage Kodak Cameras.... if U have visited my blog before, than U probably know that I have a MAJOR history with Kodak. My Grandfather worked there, most of my Aunts and Uncles too...and the most important Kodak story I can share is.... My Mommy and Daddy fell in LOVE while working there! :):):):):):):) Soooooooooo as I started reflecting on my love of Kodak's history...I started collecting cameras wherever I could find them... I have bought some from antique stores, from Nicole's ETSY shop and from a friend Heather, whose digital Kodak had decided to stop breathing life one and I even got one of them from Lisa and Scott (the owners of Blue Moon!!!) and the film rolls are from them too and my Daddy found one for me at an estate sale!!!! :):):):):):):):):):)
And I thought of nooooooooooo better way to showcase them in this shadowbox then to alter it with the Natural Living kit!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

I painted the shadowbox with crackle paint and then "wall papered" the walls with papers from the kit...soooooooooooo love this kit!! It was PERFECT for this project!! I also included some of the trim from the kit and also some of the YUMMY buttons!!! *swoon* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Next....I want to share a LO with the title....."Din Up Ma" ... "A 'Din what Julie?'" U are all asking yourselves, right??? LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
Hehehehehehehe...Here's the story....My brother Steve couldn't say "Julie" so he called me, "Din".....he also was DEATHLY afraid to wake my Mom up in the he was afraid that Daddy would wake up and get mad at him...sooooooooo my brother used to sneak into my room in the morning and say...."Din Up Ma!" other words..."Julie, get your butt out of bed and go get my Mommy and wake her up for me, so I don't get my butt in trouble from Daddy!" LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

All of U should go this kit...seriously to DIE FOR!!! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the colors and all the WONDERFUL goodies it comes with!!!!! Hope everyone has an amazing weekend! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
