More flowers

Well for the past week...ummmmm well maybe more like 2 weeks now I have been making different flowers out of different types of things, material, paper, maps etc. Here is one that I just did again using maps.


And here are a couple more different colored fabric ones that I have done over the past couple of days.

New obsession

I have been on a roll making fabric flowers. There was a link on PAGES In TIME where someone showed us how to make these flowers. I just thought that they were so cute and there are so many endless possibilities with these that I had to give them a try. Lets see, attached them to hair clips or head bands. How about adding a pin to the back so that you can out one in a t-shirt or a purse. Cute right? I went to Joanne Fabrics to see what I could get CHEAP. I didn't want to buy a whole bunch of material because I wasn't sure how these would turn out. So I hit the clearance section and found several colors that I knew that I could play around with. Now the fabric is tricky, since I do not know a whole lot about WHAT kind of fabric to use, I just kind of thought to myself...silky. There was alot of Polyester mixes so I just got what I could get my hands on. And my mom is a beader, so I went over to her house and scored some beads in the colors of material that I picked. Here are a few that I have made.

Dirty Scraps Challenge #11

Pissed off challenge over at DIRTY SCRAPS

You know I really love working with this DT. I find alot of satisfaction being able to get my feelings down in journaling and scrapping. I have always been one to get my feelings out by typing letters, even if I never did send them via email to someone, but it always made me feel better to get it written. That is how I feel when I do one of these challenges.

Dream Big



This is a lay out that I did with some old photos. I was going through my folder of photos and found these. I have scrapped alot of these pictures that we took of Mariah a couple of years ago because they were just so cute.....so I decided to scrap some more. This is based off the Thursday sketch at PAGES IN TIME
the flower in the left hand was made with maps and Glimmer mist and Helmars 450 glue. I srunched it together and adhered it to a piece of cardboard with the helmars 450 glue. I also adhered everything on the page with the glue. Amazing stuff. I started using their glue a couple of months ago and because I didnt WANT to take the chance of running out, I bought another bottle. I use it all the time. HELMARS 450

Mariah graduates



It was such a great day for all of us, to see her in her cap and gown and know that she is finally out of high school and on her way to college. The first of our family to attend college and Im so very very proud of her. It was a nice ceremony and we all went to Olive Garden for lunch/dinner. WOW... I still cant believe that she is out of high school, kind of makes me feel old!
