Weekend Recap...........

Friday Evening:

Watched vintage James Bond with the boyz
 accompanied with popcorn and wine!!

Saturday: all day

Flower workshop at 

here is the end result

10 gorgeous handmade flowers!
Zeffy is wickedly talented
and I kept saying over and over again
what a fabulous lesson/workshop I took.
Flowers are not my go to embellishment for a layout
I enjoy the latest trend in scrapbooking with the flower laden
layouts and marvel at their beauty
Its just not my style...which is cool....
 but I wanted to learn how to make flowers
and jumped at the chance to learn
If you live in Athens contact Zeffy
she is one talented lady!!
Thank You Zeffy!!.....

So after the workshop
I stayed on a little longer and made a Christmas tag
and of course the beautiful Poinsetta i had just made took
the centre stage...
what do you think?
I love it...LOL

After I stamped my image and misted the background
I applied a layer of Gel medium 
and sprinkled this gorgoeus translucent glitter
It sort of shows up on the tag.....
then started layering and embellishing!


We surprised our little man with a trip to the 
War museum

I was blown away by this cannon....
look at the detailed engraving....
Somehow it seemed ironic something that could cause so much destruction
 could be so beautiful!!..

This part of the museum freaked me out
I cringed looking at these weapons

No comment

One very happy little man!!!!!

  8. Wow gorgeous flowers!!!I love the layouts that are full of flowers and clustered with embellishments as well,even though whenever I try to do it myself it just doesn't work out the same way and I end up removing most and keeping it "emptier"...I wish I knew how to do that clustering,but I don't!I guess it's just not met!!Love your card and what a beautiful way to showcase your flower!!
