Getting Crafty with Creations by AR

Good Morning... I am so thrilled today to be a part of the 
 'Let's Get Crafty!'  
For my project I choose to use Adele's Birdhouse Topiary
so you are asking where is the bird house??? I actually only used the Planter Box.
I made 3 Planter boxes, adding the reinforcement that the template provides. 
I used Liquid glass and attached the three boxes together and then wrapped them in Close To My Heart- Cruisin' Paper. Attached the corner posts from the template and then decorated with Ribbon and Button from my stash.
Now for the Blog hop of course there will be a prize!
The winner will receive a Template of their choice from
 Creations by AR 
The winner will be randomly chosen from the comments on a "Mystery Blog"
This means please leave comments on each of the blogs involved. 
You may also wish to visit (and Like!) the CbyAR Facebook page

 Comments will be accepted through midnight Eastern time on Sat., Sept. 21
The Blog Hop winner will be announced on Sun., Sept. 22

Hope you find a little inspiration from my Marker Bin...
