LBC March Holidays Blog Hop

                                                                     Hey y'all and welcome to Lovebug Creations' Creative Team FIRST EVER blog hop!!! The theme is MARCH Holidays. We are totally tickled to have you and super excited to show you MORE of the NEW Rumple Ribbon!!! They will be live in the store on Sunday, Feb 24, 2013. 

If you just so happened to find my blog and want to start at the beginning, please visit Lovebug Creations Blog. The entire line up is there in case you may get lost along the way. If you got here from Zeni's Blog, you are on the right track. Doesn't she do amazing work?? 

Now, onto my project. Going with the theme, SPRING is one of my favorite times of the year and just so happens to be March 20. Spring brings flowers and most of you know my LOVE for flower making. The color rumple ribbon I used is BALLET SLIPPERS. You may remember it in my sneaky peek from Tuesday. ( sorry if it looks different, photos and lighting don't always work) 

I started with a plain 'ole water bottle and chopped the top of. I painted some Gesso on the bottle so the paint would stick. I then mixed some CTMH Create A Shade and some ink. I painted it over the dried Gesso. This gave the bottle a beautiful pink shimmer. I wrapped lace around the bottle and then put the Ballet Slippers ribbon over it around the center and tied a bow. I hand made the flowers. The tag was a print and cut from the Silhouette Store. I added tulle and stamens to the bottom. 


Thanks for stopping by and now you are on your way to Christine's Blog. I'm sure she has something wonderful to show you. 
Don't forget to comment on each blog for a chance to win your choice of 2 colors of ribbon. You MUST comment on EVERY blog in the hop.( open to US residents only.. sorry)  Again, to start at the beginning please visit >> Lovebug Creations .


Happy Crafting and big Hugs,
Tanya
