I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. With my dh in Utah for the next week I promised myself that I would spend more time in my craft room. My dear niece, Ali, turned 15 so I made her a shadow box. She loves her puppy Hershey, so included a photo of the two of them. She's also a bit of a fashionista so I used my cricut to cut out some models from the Forever Young cartridge.
I also wanted to take a look at my latest Easter card. I wasn't happy with some of the papers I chose, so I switched a few things around. This is my third revision of this card. I also did a bit of researching on decorative pins. I wasn't sure if crafters made their pins - or bought them. So I went to my neighborhood Hobby Lobby (who had all of their glass beads on sale 50% off), so I figured I'd take a shot at making a few. It was very relaxing to make and I think they turned out pretty nice. I added a pink and yellow one to my latest Easter card. I have two more Easter cards to make, so I hope to have them done in time to mail to my two Aunts.
Shadowbox and card for my niece.
Enjoy your week!
