11.21.2010 Day 2: Mother-in-Law Gift

So I can't decide. Candle inside or photos of grandchildren. hmmm... What do you think?

Either way I will hang cute little butterflies from the inside of the dome.


11.20.2010 Craft Warehouse Assignment #3

About two weeks ago I submitted my Design Team Assignments for project #3. This month we worked with Echo Park's "Everybody Loves Christmas" and Basic Grey Lines "Wander" and "Pyrus." It was so much fun. I wish I would have had more time to take some great photos of the projects. This project was a quick one due within three weeks and it was really hard to get into the Christmas swing of things. :)

11.19.2010 Mother in Law Gift: Day One

OK...The project is started. I started last night glimmer misting Eight 6x6 BasicGrey papers.

This morning I punched over 50 retro flowers from the Glimmer Misted paper. I used four flowers to make each rose. I glued each layer together and then put a pearl in the middle of each one and curled each petal. Then I finger painted stickles on the top of each flower.

Now it is back to thinking time. I would like to cover the bottom of the lantern with the flowers and somehow get a picture of her Grand kids in there but I need some height . I thought about using one of those battery powered candles to put in the middle but would have to hot glue the flowers on the bottom so she can move the candle in and out to turn it on and off. What do you think?


11.13.2010 Josh & Mr Yeow Board Book

Every time my son looked at these pictures a huge smile came across his face so I decided he needed his own book. This book was made with the new My Minds Eye papers True Blue, chipboard, 7 Gypsies Cable Rings and a ton of ModPodge. Since Josh would be playing with it I wanted to make sure things were securely glued down and simple.

Sorry for the blurry photos. My battery was going dead but I wanted to get photos posted before Josh started playing with it. :)
