Flowers Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop!!!!

Hey everyone!!! I'm so excited to share with you today the project I made for this great blog hop!!! Kathryn over at Creations With Kathryn is hosting this hop and she is so great! If you've just happened to find the hop on my page you can start at the beginning over on her page Creations With Kathryn she does really great work and she also has some blog candy!!!

Onto my project! Here are the pictures!!

I do have to admitt that my house has been full of boys so this is the very first time I've ever tried to make paper flowers on my own. (I have done a demo before at Archivers...they pretty much hold your hand the whole time hee hee hee) I used the Cindy Loo cartridge. There is a really great multi layer flower on that cart. If your like me and don't have many of the "Girlie" carts the Cindy Loo cart is a great one that can be used for both boys and girls. You just gotta be creative!!

So for the flowers I used 3 different colors of paper but stayed with the same pattern. The paper is from "My Minds Eye" It cuts so great on my E. After cutting out all the pieces I inked them up with a little chalk ink. I'm finding that I like the chalk ink over the pigment. The chalk dries faster and leaves a more suttle inking job. After the inking I put the layers together and used my "Crop-A-Dile 2" to punch a hole into the middle of the flowers and secured them together with a blingy brad.

The frame is also from Cindy Loo....another reason to LOVE this cart every single page has a frame on it!! I love that option cause I love my pictures to be a great photocal point on my pages.

The sentiment was cut from April Showers. My BFF helped me out with that cut since I don't own that cartridge!!

Well I hope that everyone likes my project! I tried to go big with lots of flowers and thought about spring!!! We definetly are ready for the nicer weather to start coming!!!
