Friends with Flair Friday

Hello Friends. Today I am participating in Unity Stamp Friends with Flair. I have a project today instead of a card. A charm necklace I made for my Daughter. My girls are away at Church Young Women's camp this week. The charm necklaces are for my daughter Caroline to give to her group of girls that she is going to teach one night. It uses the March 2012 Kit if the Month called From Head to Soul. The scripture it uses is from Matthew 5:16. So totally perfect. The tags are from Hobby Lobby, I used Staz On to ink it up and painted it with modge podge as soon as it was dry. After that I added a few layers of iridescent silver paint and some glitter. The bottles are Tim Holtz and are filled with tiny silver stars. I used waxed twine and twill ribbon from Autumn leaves and  some ribbon from Michael's. The rest is just some floral wire and Hobby Lobby clasps.
So go to the Unity Blog here  <--------  
and check it out :-).  Dont forget to comment because Unity gives away a cool prize to one random commenter and one participant. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and celebrate with all of our Dad's or Dad figures.  Until next time Amigas.

Teacher Gifts

Hello Friends, just stopping by the old neglected blog to say hi. Today is the last day of school and it couldn't come soon enough this year. I have been so extremely busy but officially today is my last day of craziness. I made these teacher gifts last night. It has been so crazy lately my mind has been in overload. We went to our youngest Daughter's Middle School Promotion at 2:30 in the afternoon in 100 degree heat with no shade! I think my brain got cooked besides the nasty sunburn. Yeah the person that thought of that schedule DOES NOT get one of these LOL.

Basically I got the inspiration for these from the DCWV Blog. I am addicted to their paper and have TONS AND TONS of it. These however were made using Re'collections paper, only the silver band is DCWV. Its just what I had on hand and could find in my stash at 10 at night. Ran to the grocery store to get the candy for them and tada! Finally my craft supply hoarding paid off! Below is another gift I decorated for my Daughter.

I have A TON of cards to share that I've made here and there and will share them on Monday. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. 'Till next time Amigas.
