Paper Flowers

     I have been busy the last few days making paper flowers.  I found them online @ Such a Pretty Mess .  They are easy to make and really add that "special something" to layouts.  It's been fun making them.  I've added some pearls to the middle of some and glitter to the petals of others.

I've also done a few layouts using up the last of the pictures I've got on hand.

This one is of my niece Tori...she's a beauty! (Layout done with the July Nook kit.)
My very first try at the paper flowers
Hand stitching!

This is a newborn picture of Aubri (which will be 3 years ago later this month!)

And finally, this is of my girls rough-housing outdoors.
A cluster that I'm happy turned out so well.

     And last night I printed out about 30 more pictures so I'll have some to work with now! Here's a favorite of mine: the Bald Knob Cross. I just love it from this angle!  Bald Knob Cross is the largest cross in the western hemisphere, located in Alto Pass, Illinois.  It is the realized dream of one man and currently in disrepair today with a war of sorts going on to try and get the funds together to get it restored to its former glory.  This photo was taken on one of our last trips home and it is a part of home that I dearly miss!!
Hope you enjoyed, cheers!
