It's here! My official first day as a Serendipity Scrapbooks DT member. I am so excited...a little overwhelmed...but thrilled nonetheless. I was fortunate to get to work with the Just Enough kit this time. It is full of Pebbles Inc "Skipping Along" papers and stickers, American Crafts papers, A/C Thickers, Bo Bunny flowers and Basic Grey bling and rub-ons! Lots of yummy goodies in this kit. I completed 4 layouts and 1 card wih the kit and there is plenty of product left fot several more projects. And believe it or not, I completed the layouts and cards using mainly kit items!
This layout is one of my favorites...mostly because this picture is soooo Keri. Despite her over the top personality, she is a true sweetie with a heart of gold.
The flowers were all made by layering stickers and hand cut pieces from various papers in the kit. I also want to add a little bit of pizazz so I hand stitched the swirls.
This next layout includes silly pictures of Morgan and her friends. I thought the pics went perfectly with the vibrant, carefree colors and patterns in this kit.
If you are interested in how to make the pinwheel flower, I've included directions at the bottom of the post.
So I heard from the doc about my MRI...no surgery needed!!!!! YAY!!!!! I do have a protruding disc but nothing surgery will correct. As a result, I will be spending quite a few hours in physical therapy. I have my first appointment tomorrow. I've been through the ropes before...it's just been several years. So keep your fingers crossed that this old body recovers as quickly as possible. LOL!
Before I go, I must tell you how much I appreciate all the well wishes. You guys are awesome. I'm trying to make my way around to visit but I'm still limited on my computer time. Work and postings for design teams is taking what little computer time I have right now. But like I promised last time...I will be lurking around your blogs again very soon!!!
To create pinwheel flower:
Cut desired size square (4" used here) from double-sided paper.
Mark center point of square with a pencil.
Starting at one corner, use a ruler to create a straight diagonal line.
Cut along diagonal line toward center, stopping within 1/4" of center point.
Cut remaining three corners, creating 4 triangles.
Fold one corner of a triangle toward center & adhere.
Continue with remaining 3 triangles being certain to fold in same direction each time.
Decorate center of finished pinwheel with buttons, flowers, bling, etc.
