Good Morning Everyone!
And it really is a good morning. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and I have a day all to myself to work on my paper crafts. I have taken lots of pictures this morning and plan to write about them and post them today.
Marie has been asking me to create "something cool" for her bedroom walls. I have asked her again and again what she has in mind and her only response has been, "Something cool." So I stopped by HomeGoods yesterday to check out their frames and found a few that I totally loved. Normally I am not a big fan of the distressed look, but there was a collection of distressed frames in the yummiest shades of pink, blue, yellow, and green that caught my eye. I selected an 8" x 10" green one and an 8" x 10" blue one.
I had an idea in mind and it all came together quite nicely. I browsed through the quotes at this link, http://www.scrapbook.com/quotes.php and found a quote that I could use. I created a document and used the CK Quick Stitch font to type, "Where flowers bloom, so does hope."
I used 2 dies from PaperTrey Ink's Bloom builders #1 die set and cut 2 flowers. I used a Sizzix die to cut my leaves, but free cut the stems. Here's my frame.
I love the way it turned out and think Marie will too.
The stats on blogger show that I average between 50 and 100 hits a day so I know that there are people reading my blog. I'd love some comments to hear what you think about my creations and what else you'd like to see because I don't post all of my creations.
Have a wonderful day! Expect some more posts today.
