It's November...yikes! Hard to believe, but it's fun to see the season's change. There is always something to be amazed at when you really look at Mother Nature.
I have a simple, little shabby project that will be on the Glue Arts blog tomorrow. The sponsored manufacturer is "Die Cuts With a View", or DCWV as scrapbookers know them. This project uses their Lady Couture Paper Stack with Gloss.
There will be a supply list and some simple instructions up with more photos tomorrow at the Glue Arts blog. I tried to capture the glossy embossiness of the papers, but it was hard! ;-)
Those chipboard pieces that I used for the project are from Maya Road. Individual pieces from a couple of their Albums(Keyhole & Home.) I have to say that if it had not been for the Maya Road chipboard, I was lost on what to make..., so thank you Maya Road for your wonderful product. Love it all!
The wire trim is made from 20 gauge black wire. I looped it around a finger then cut to add to the backside of the chipboard with Glue Arts hot glue gun. I always jab my fingers and end up bleeding when I work with wire, but I think that the effect was worth it.
I want to share a couple of photos of my son, Cole's wedding. He married the sweetest girl. We love them both so much!
As you can see, it was very casual... an outdoor ceremony by the lake at Camp Patterson with the reception and dance to follow. It was lovely and sweet and created a bunch of happiness all around.
I made all of the decorations and the bouquets. I had a special friend who helped so so much with the flowers too, making the boutineers and helping my sister and another friend with vases for the tables that consisted of zinnia's, dahlia's, billy balls, and cabbage roses.
I bought large lanterns for months and painted them white and distressed them up. I made fabric pennant banners for the ceiling in the lodge where the dance was held and for the ceremony site and miscellaneous other places. It was so fun!
They lit sparklers and exited the ceremony to the Johnny Cash song, "Ring of Fire"... "Love is a burning thing... and it makes a firey ring..." It was so cute and again, fun! Their love truly is like a burning ring of fire in so many ways.
Okay... more creating going on here tonight. I figure as long as the mess is out I will work on my next assignment. If you have time to check back in next week, I will be back and I think that it's time for a give away too. Thanks for stopping by and see you next week!
