If you've come here from Grace Tolman's blog, you're in the right place, if not, the blog order for today is as follows:
OK, on with the fun! I received the most delicious package of goodies from My Little Shoebox, including the very yummy Lovely Day collection. My most favorite part of this collection, besides the absolutely gorgeous colors was this extremely fun punch out sheet with great rolled flowers. I knew whatever my project was going to be...it HAD to include those flowers!
I decided that these flowers, and of course some Twine flowers would take center stage on my layout.
I love this picture. We watched this cute little hummingbird come and visit the flowers on my parent's back deck. After days of trying to capture his picture we finally got the shot!
I embellished the rolled and flat flowers from My Little Shoebox with some pearls and created a little flower garden using them and my Twine flowers. I created the twine flowers using Orchid, Buttercream, Honeydew, Blossom and Shore Twinery Twine and my ever handy Hanna Ami flower loom. Of course I needed to add a little die cut birdie!
I also used the negative of a flower I die cut on one of the squares and sewed around the flower to add a little depth.
This was a VERY FUN layout to create.
OK, now for a little more fun. As you've probably seen on the other blogs in the hop today, The Twinery is giving away this great prize to one lucky winner! It's four spools of twine, in the newest colors that came out in January...Cantaloupe, Shore, Flax and Orchid. All you have to do to win is visit each blog in the hop this week and leave a comment.
