I am having a nice quiet long weekend - I have done a couple of chores, been for my walk while the photos were being processed, had a salad lunch picked from the garden and now just before I head to my scrap room I thought I would post something I created early last year. It is almost completely Prima papers, flowers and embellishment although there are some Wild Orchid ones in there too.
The inspiration for this project and the template comes from my parents. In the late 80's early 90's Mum and my hobby was dried flowers where we made numerous arrangements and sold them from my home in ''the Cottage' and also at fairs and swap meets. Mum's specialty was little hessian tissue cottages decorated with dried flowers. She covered the template (cardboard cut outs produced by Dad) with hessian and then sewed and glued them together before decorating with dried flowers. This is now the paper version still using one of the original bases although the tissue boxes are now produced smaller so I added a base to the bottom to hold the new size in. .
Right must head off to the scrap room - so many projects in mind that I don't know where to start. Hopefully I will be back by the end of the weekend with something if the mojo gets cranking.
Enjoy your weekend. Thanks so much for visiting today.
Until next time....
