Frame and homemade flowers

Happy Wednesday!!

I have been working on making flowers so that I can use them with my different crafts and as you know, buying them in the stores can be expensive!!  Well thanks to all the wonderful and talented people out here in blogland why not make your own right??  :)

So this has taken a little investigation and time watching tutorials, which I absolutely love.   I decided to try this adoreable crepe paper flower that I found on Terri's site over at Artful Affirmations.  It is so easy but looks so elegant!!!  Hop on over and check out her adoreable ideas.

I also added a lace paper doilie and a ribbon to complete it.  When I was creating these adoreable flowers, I had some paper that had butterflies on it and had a flash of why not cut one out, embelish it with the same glitter and make it 3D.  So I did!! 

Well you may be able to figure out from this picture what I am doing with these.  Well here it is :)  I think this is so cute and delicate looking  and plan on putting a very special picture in it to display.  How easy is that!!  I love it!!

I'm still working on my memory mini album from my 50th and it's coming along very nicely. I will post pics when I'm done with it.  It has been a fun one to work on that's for sure :)  Here are a few flowers I've done up to put on some of the pages.  They give such an extra touch to the pages and I just love the dimensions they give it!!

Well I'm off to a busy busy day.  A lot going on with little time to craft but that's OK.  Wedding venue, Dr.'s office visit and necessity shopping to do. 

Linkies I'm following:

Love all the flowers. You have such a talent for crafting. It seems that some people really have to work at it and to others it just comes naturally.

Have a good day.

I love doing these kinds of crafts, too. I have been scrapbooking for a few years and just love the feeling of satisfaction when I get a page/embellishment/book done just right. I did a 60th anniversary for my parents. It took almost a year and many $$$. It was a 12 x 12 and over 40 pages, starting from their youth to the present. I am very proud of it. Yeah, scrapbooking-preserving our history-is very fulfilling. Love that more people like you are doing it! ★Linda★
