Is it ok...

to LOVE your own creations? Because I totally do.
I made this LO for this month's challenge on the My Mind's Eye blog. The challenge is to follow a given sketch and make your own hand made flowers, plus instructions. I have lots of MME products and I love to make flowers so I thought, why not?



For the flowers I made a poinsettia, rose, poppy and stacked flower.




I also incorporated this LO for another challenge


I also made this sleigh that I think turned out adorable. I've had this wooden sleigh in the garage for a few years just waiting to be dressed up. When my kit from Jen's House Of Scrap arrived yesterday I knew today was the day. I covered it with papers from Collage Press's "Joyride". I embellished it with chipboard from BG's "Eskimo Kisses" and wonderful findings from the thrift store.



I made the rose using instructions from the amazing Tim Holtz and everything got a nice coat of Shimmerz paints. I truly love that stuff!!



Thanks for letting me share!

Ummm...when your project looks like this...YEA BABY (ok to love it). I love both...but I'm particularly fond of that layout. The colors, the flowers,....well, just everything. I am inspired to go try that myself, now!!
