Hey everyone and TGIF! Wow, what a crazy week it's been! Not only did my kids start school this week.... add soccer, Tae Kwon Do, homework and a full time job in the mix... and you got ME --- > the crazy busy Arlene. LOL!! But I'm sure many of you that have children can relate to the craziness our children's schedules can bring to our lives... BUT, I wouldn't trade it for the world! I have the best kids ever and I would go to the ends of the earth for each of them. ❤
So onto my Stampers Dream project for this week! I decided to bust out with some oldies but goodies... my Tim Holtz Baroque Alterations die and the forever wonderful Sewing Room Alterations die. I used the new My Minds Eye "A Happy Heart" papers and the sentiment is from the JustRite Forever Friends cling stamp set.
Here are some pics:
The large red rose is a Kaisercraft Paper Bloom that I sprayed with my Lindy Stamp Gang Rudolph's Nose Red Starburst Stain. The small rose buds are from my stash. I created a stick pin using findings from my craft supply and I added a button from the Toy Box collection by Crate Paper. I love the Maya Road Wood Mini spool that I added to the bunch -- it's so cute!!
The bling is by Recollections, but the metal bling layered on top of the sheer brown pleated Maya Road trim is by Webster's Pages.
I die cut the dressform in medium weight chipboard, then colored it up with Ranger Distress Stain in Fired Brick. I edged it in Distress Stain in Vintage Photo. I stamped one of the images from the Habadashery cling stamp set by Tim Holtz. I used some May Arts trim (currently out of stock) around the dressform's hips for her skirt. I added an mulberry rose from my stash. All the edges are finished off by edging them with Ranger Distress Ink in Walnut Stain.
I enjoyed sharing my project with you today. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have an amazingly sweet & crafty weekend!
