Smile

My SIL is leaving for another year of school today so I thought I'd put together a small care package for her.  This picture was a candid shot of us when we were camping July long weekend.  I'm sending it along with her so when she's having a bad day this might make her smile.  Even if it's only on the inside that's ok.


I made the ribbon flower and added a Tim Holtz button in the center.  Love that!


Here I made a shabby-chic doily flower using the Tim Holtz "Tattered Florals" die and this tutorial here only I used all 4 sized pieces and not just 2 of them as she's instructed.


I kinda wish this was mine.  LOL!!  I do have the same picture and it'll be interesting to see how that one turns out.

Hope you're all enjoying your long weekend!  Hugs!

Such great colors with the blue tones, white and black. Love all the embellishments, the doily and lace details look beautiful.

That is a great picture of you guys! What a great idea! I love the color, but you already knew that! LOL :) It is weird seeing a project from you without any coloring! Did you enjoy getting away from the coloring? Love all the flowers!!
