Flower Power....

Hi all and happy Sunday evening! It's been a busy weekend for us. My son and his fiance's household shower was yesterday evening and was a fun, fun time for all! Today has been busy with church and friends! Blessed....but busy!

I have been trying to make some of my own embellishments for my cards and layouts. I love BIG, over the top flowers! I have been buying cheap dollar store silk flower bunches and taking them apart to make them more "page/card friendly." Here are a couple of my attempts:

For this card I used Kay and Co. Family Tree Papers, Floral garden silk flowers, Gem by the Beadery and ribbon scraps from my stash.

For this card, NRN Papers, Floral Garden silk flower, Gem by the Beadery and ribbon scrap. so much fun to add these big, beautiful flowers.

Hope that you have a great week...until next time, happy scrapping!

A Long Time Coming.....

Hey y'all...this post has been a long time coming! 6 weeks since my last one! Whew, I am a slacker on the blogging front, but I have been creating....and just to prove it, here are a couple of my latest cards:

The first was for my niece, Hannah's high school graduation. I used Moxie Fab Papers, Offrey Ribbon, Hobby Lobby Pearls, Floral Garden Flower and chipboard sticker. ( I have started making most of the flowers used on my creations by buying regulary old silk flowers from anywhere and dismantling them, reassembling them, adding bling and turning them into flowers fit for scrapbooking and card making. Flowers are my all time FAVE embellishment, so this is working well for me!)

My second card today was for my MIL for Mother's Day. I used paper scraps, Floral Garden Flower (again, recreated for my purposes), HL pearls, Hallmark Ribbon, Inkadinkado Stamp and Martha Stewart Ribbon.

I am busy right now with MANY crafty projects, most of which are for my son's upcoming July wedding! Wedding favors, pew bows, flower poofs, boutineres and flower arrangements have taken over my scrapspace and the rest of the house! But what a blast!!! Soon to be DIL has involved me (the groom's mother!) in every aspect of the BIG DAY and I am loving it! (I will be a bit relieved when I have all of these projects complete, as I am beginning to smother a bit with all there is left to do) I will post snippets of the "finery" later.

Have a great Tuesday!
