Hello Bloggy Friends,
Over a month ago I was asked if I would like to participate
in a crafting challenge. Having never really done one,
other than swaps, I decided I would love to give this a try.
My sweet friend Ele over at
was our hostess and supplier of the
materials we would use in our challenge.
We also were given some adorable hand stamped ribbon
from OwensAcres etsy shoppe.
Can you see all the wonderful goodies that came in my kit?
Papers, ribbon, twine, crepe paper, glitter, buttons
and oh, so much more.
I actually had an idea right off, of what I thought I'd do.
Having seen shadow boxes on Pinterest and etsy,
I really wanted to do one of these.
So my first thing was to secure a *shadowbox*...which
I snagged on ebay.
I then had to put my goodies aside as I was
sadly dealing with my sweet kitty Chloe who was in
kidney failure. We then went on our family vacation
the middle of June. Once I returned, I knew I would
have to get my creative juices flowing.
Adoring and Loving...
HEARTS and ROSES
I REAAAAALLLY had so much fun with my
theme. If you know me or are a follower you will KNOW
this is SOOOOO me!!!
I used up most every piece of the papers what were given me.
The main colors were pretty pale blues, green and fadded
sheets of paper. I then tried to use this theme in
different ways, showcasing the fun materials we were
Being a lacy girl I added tons of lace,
and my own hand made clay and felt roses too.
I was able to incorporate most of the fun items
we had received, the glitter on a heart, the beads
on another heart, the buttons everywhere, and
best of all...I had to use my imagination!
I used our *free* sweet ribbon in two ways.
I created a ribbon rose and then added
a ribbon box with my felt roses
in one of my sections.
A Perfect compliment to the other
lovely items we had to play with.
Thank you Owens Acres!!!
