Cruise layouts completed at crop!

Hello everyone!

My daughter and I attending a weekend crop which ended  today.  Sadly it ended early because my husband was injured at work yesterday so we had to cut the crop short.  I was very pleased at how much we were able to accomplish between 5 pm Friday the 27 and Saturday until at 10:30pm and I wanted to share with you what I was able to complete.  I designed one of my layouts to complete in a sketch challenge too so all in all it was a great weekend!


Thanks for stoppping by to look!
Have a SCRAPtastic day!

Paper Flowers Centerpiece

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to share a bouquet of paper flowers and a glass flower pot I made.

I used Mother's Day Bouquet for the flowers which I distressed then build with dimensional foam between the layers.  The layers of foam gave me a great spot to punch a 1/8" hole through and glue the flower onto a wooden kabob scewer.  I then top the flower with a small center to hide the wooden stem.

I used Home Decor to cut vinyl and then etched Create, Hope, Love & a flower and bird onto the large candle holder.  I got a bag of glass beads at my local dollar store portioned them out into 3 sandwich bags and then dropped several drops of alcohol inks into the bag to color the glass beads.  I spread the beads out to dry on paper then added them to my new flower pot (candle holder).  I planted the flowers and they are beautiful and cheery, in my opinion.

Thanks for coming to visit!










Have a SCRAPtastic day!
