Scrappy Monday Layout Challenge ~ Episode 349

So this is perfect for me.  I just got back from New York visiting the family for Easter.
I started my trip in Virginia where one Son lives then on to Long Island where my other
Son lives and then to New York for some me time in the Big City.  Had a blast!

Green with Envy

Another fun project.  Love making these dresses.  Just think for your little girls party dress you could make a similar look a like and add it to her Scrapbook page.  Or use it as the invitation to her special party using the party theme colors.  Everyone here is creative so have fun with this.

Formal Affair

Last night I was YouTube surfing and came across this video of a lady making Wedding Dresses.  OMG
she is amazing.  Her blog is  Beautiful work.
So here is my first try of her Wedding Dress. She used Nestabilities for her dress.  I just used different colors to make it a formal dress  instead of a Wedding Dress.  Mine is all made with the Art Philosophy cartridge, the dress the flowers and the flourishes.  Enjoy

The Simple Things in Life

Peachy Challenge 14 :: Color Inspiration

Good morning and happy Sunday to all.  Its been a while since I have joined you for a challenge
Been away visiting family and having fun.
Good to be back home and crafting again.  Also as some of you may notice I had a remake of my 
Blog while I was away.  Thank goodness for Iphone I was still able to oversee the process.
I am really excited about the changes.  Grab my Blinkie on the way and have a great day.

Roses Are Red

Her is another Paper Mache box.  This one is 5" and covered with three different papers.
Also I painted the bottom black to give a finished and complete look.  The flower and leaves are
cut from the Art Phil. cartridge and hand rolled with the quilling tool.  Love that tool, it makes it so easy to roll the flowers and they come out perfect.  I added a little rhinestone on the leaf to give
it a dewy look and a little glitter around the edges.
Makes a great gift with or without something special inside.

A Keep Sake Box for Maria

Just coming back from a visit with my family.  Spending time with the grandchildren was fun.  I have two grandsons and one granddaughter.  Of course most of the things I make go to her.  She is a girly girl and loves jewelry just like her grandmother.  Anyway I made her this cute little box to put on her dresser.  She just had her room painted pinks and purples so I think this will go perfect.  Of course I will be putting something inside as a surprise.
The flowers were cut at 2.5 from the Art Philosophy cartridge and used the quilling tool a must have to make the flowers.
