Homecoming corsage and Boutonniere..

Hey ya'll and WELCOME back!! 
Caution... pic heavy
I am sooo excited to finally show you a corsage and boutonniere I made for a sweet friend, Jenny. Let's back this up a bit... A dear friend asked me to make her ONLY daughter's corsage for her first Homecoming. I was totally ELATED that she trusted me with this special project!! I know from having a daughter of my own, how special these occasions are and how PERFECT we want them to be. So, I was over joyed to have this task. Don't be fooled.. I was also VERY nervous!!!  Talk about PRESSURE big time!!! I definitely had to make these and send them in case they weren't what my friend had in mind. I did just that!! So.. she sent me a photo of the dress.. I got what I needed and went to town... Let me say this.. the boutonniere was harder than the corsage!! I try to keep the same elements, but not make it look overly girlie.. 

Here is what I came up with...

Well, tonight was the BIG night and Emalie and Austin LOVED their corsage and boutonniere. Here they are looking AMAZINGLY gorgeous and handsome!! 

Thank you so much Jenny for trusting me to make this for your daughter. It means soooo much to know that YOU have that much faith in me. It really means alot!! I am so excited you liked it Emalie.. :)  You surely made it look good :)  

Thank you all for stopping by. Hope to see ya soon..
Till next time..
Happy Crafting!!

BIA School Agenda

Hello there... and welcome back :) 

So, most of you know our house is made of mine, his, and ours.. ( kiddos of course).. hehe.. Well, apparently the Middle Schools and High Schools are no longer giving the students agendas so I decided to make one. Yep, hubby's Middle School son HAS to have something to write his homework and tests in. This is what I came up with. I even added a multiplication table and weights and measures plus a folder in the back with a pocket. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out... considering it was a last minute idea. Hope you like it as well. 

Plastic folder
DCWV Stack 6
Mod Podge
Cameo: cut letters
SU Card Stock
BIA and accessories

This was an EASY project once I got the info for the weights and the table. I made my own pages using MS Word so I could put his classes in order. He does change classes around Christmas time, so I made some with the boxes and lines and we can add the classes later. Yep, I thought ahead. :) 

Thanks for stopping by... and until next time...

Handmade flower wreath

Hello ya'll and welcome to my blog. 

Today I have a wreath to show you that was totally inspired by Anna Fearer . She had a live Ustream one night and I was lucky enough to be online to watch her make one. She is so inspiring and very encouraging. Her hand sculpted flowers are so gorgeous most people mistake them for real flowers!!  Be sure to check her out when you leave here. She also has an Etsy store where YOU can buy her flowers and she does special orders!! She has a link on her blog :) 

So.. onto my wreath... I bought a Cameo a couple months ago ( finally.. LONGGG story as to why I didn't already have one... ) and have finally figured out SVG files. :)  I purchased some from Scraptastical Creations and fell in LOVE!! She has TONS of them and they come in several different file formats. (She has sales at times too so be sure to bookmark her store) Anyways.. most of the flowers in my wreath are from her files. I'm sure you will love them as much as I do. anyways... here are a few photos of my wreath... 

I hope you like it as much as I do. A very special lady in my life is getting this and she doesn't even know it!! I can't wait to give it to her. 
Thank you for stopping by. Please come again...

till next time...
