Hula Girl

So I am still making things for my granddaughters Luau Party.  I finished all the favors and came out so cute.  Today I out did myself and made this cute Hula girl as a center piece for the party.
She is cut at 8" from Life Is A Beach.  I used a Paper Tower Roll to attach her to which is wrapped in Burlap from  The flowers are from  Emma's Flower Dies.
I think she came out adorable.  Enjoy!

Altered Tissue Box

Throwback Thursday Challenge #363
For my project I used a tissue box.  Covered it.  Added the fence from MS cartridge and the grass used MS scissor then I added the flowers.  I used AP cartridge and cut different size flowers.  Wrapped my stems with green floral tape and added the leaves.  A tulle bow and brushed the glitter on the leaves and there you have it.  I am using it tomorrow as a centerpiece for my dinner party.

It looks so beautiful in person.

Just For You

Happy Sunday everyone.  Yesterday I wanted to try and make some big flowers so I got out my Art Philosophy and cut these, well the big ones at fit to page.  Love how they turned out.  I used some green flower tape and made a little bouquet.  In the bottle I used shredded card stock to fill the inside of the bottle with color.  Tied a bow and there you have it. Enjoy!

My Granddaughters Luau Birthday Party

In July my granddaughter will turn 10.  She asked me to make her a Luau Birthday Party.  Of course I said yes.  I have started putting together some ideas.  The flowers I think I want to make place settings with.  The little Buggy will be used for her guest favors.
Well it is a start.  I want to make a paper cake and still thinking.  I could use some of the flowers to make head bands, that would be cute also.
The flowers are made with the Flower Shoppe and Life's a Beach.  The Buggy is from Hello Kitty and hide the Kitty.

Just For You

Peachy Challenge 17 :: Sketch

Hello and Happy Friday.  For my project today I used PK stamp PK333.  Colored in with Copic markers and Gel Pens and Glitter.  The stamp is from CTM, Gift Card Sentiment and also the oval die cut is from
 The flower is from  Art Philosophy cartridge..
If ever you are in the market for a new cartridge I recommend this cartridge highly.  I think if I had to choose this would be the one I go to most of the time now.  Also Close To My Heart sells coordinating stamps for this cartridge in their catalog.  It makes it nice and easy to cut out a shape and then stamp it without having to try and cut the stamp out and get it to look good.
You can find this on my CTMH site.  Just click on the Shopping Cart and it will take you to it.
  A must have cartridge.

I was looking for some glasses in the house that I could decorate, but nothing around.  Then I came across these glass that I had made for my son and daughter in law when they got Engaged back in 1994 so I thought Hum these would be good to use and them send them to them on their Anniversary which is also in September.
I think they will get a kick seeing these again.  But only now I put my own personal touch on them.  Enjoy!
