i know, i know, it's a bit KERRRRR-AYYYY-ZEEEE, even for me; but i made one for miss riley last year and another for lindsay marie this past autumn, and i guess knowing this would be my last shot spurred me on to bold new levels of embellishment, both front and back, inside and out!!!
(base of crown made from 12x18" heavy duty oaktag; patterned papers (nearly all scraps!): creative imaginations, doodlebug, dcwv, echo park, anna griffin, sei, prima, mme, bo bunny, ki, and maybe a few more miscellaneous scraps!; florals: prima; ribbon + lace trim: michaels; rose trimmings: webster's pages; brads: american crafts; pins: pink paislee, joann essentials, k and co; gems and pearls: kaiser, martha stewart, recollections; butterfly punches: martha stewart; border punches: martha stewart, fiskars, recollections; stamps: autumn leaves, pti; inks: colorbox, ranger, stayzon; pen: copic multiliner; adhesives: xyron, tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, hot glue, sewing machine)
since, as i mentioned, this is a special SOS two-week anniversary challenge, we are still rockin' our awesomely inspirational bingo card; so you can choose ANY row or column you like, you just need to have five consecutive items!
i've used the diagonal row which starts at the top left space this time, so i've got:
(butterflies + flags + 1 border strip)
(brads + butterfly accents + some of the pennants)
(LOTS and lots of extras!!!)
(the laces and bow which hold it together)
(check! multiple shades, even!)
and now here's the blog candy giveaway:
in true spirit of shopping our stash, i thought it was appropriate that my candy consist of things i already had... but unaccountably hadn't used or even opened... stuff i either "outgrew" or just bought too much of! so one lucky winner will receive a really mixed bag of older (but complete and pristine!) products of which this picture gives you an idea:
what's in there? oof--what ISN'T in there might be quicker to answer, lol! ok, well, there's an american crafts 12x12" paper pack, loads of alphabets, a bit of chipboard, felt embellies, ribbon, tags, stickers, journaling cards, and... well, there might even be a few "surprises" that i add in over the course of this week; feel free to enter as many times as you like, by leaving a comment on this post. the winner will be chosen by random draw and announced next monday, may 28th. good luck, darlings! ♥
ps: even a remedial black-thumbed non-gardener such as myself knows that the flowers on yesterday's card are DOGWOODS and not magnolias! i was just... ummmmmm... testing you, yeah, that's it, testing!!! :) :) :)
