MBT Exclusive DT Project for June

Today, I am showing my exclusive DT project for
MB'sTreasurista.  I needed a door hanger to put on my 
door when I am video taping in my studio.  I decided to 
alter one and put video taping on it so my family will know 
when it is on the door...don't come in, cause Mom is making a video!!  LOL

I really like how it turned out!
Here is a list of MBT products that I used:
Silver rhinestone trim
