Okay so I was looking through Little Birdie Secrets and found an adorable Christmas paper wreath she has made. I have been looking for a 4th of July wreath and haven't found one that I want. When I saw this I knew I had to make one with the patriotic paper I already had :).
I cut the wreath backing out of a large piece of cardboard. I did spray all the stars with a clear glossy spray paint to add just a little bit of protection as I am hanging this on my front door. I looked for a die cut and couldn't find the size that I wanted so I looked for a star pattern online and used that. I love how just folding the stars gives dimension. So the total cost of my project $2.39 for ribbon, $3.25 for spray paint. That works! I have to admit I miss playing with paper, this was a fun project.
well parents were off and the leprechaun must have drunk too much guiness...so we didn't get green colored pancakes as we have in the past. Thanks goodness for crafty clever blogging gals Little Birdie Secrets for calling my attention to Beth Proudfoot's cute idea, I quickly redeemed myself by getting a few items at the store. Here is the cute thing, this is Beth's picture from her blog. I used her tag and added rolos and Hersheys nuggets to it. The rainbow licorice had 5 of each color it was perfect. So cute! Grateful for creative people who saved me. I made the kids bed (like I said parents were off and we slept in) and then put the rainbow with pot of gold on their pillow.
well not really but trying to get some of my thousands of pictures editted and do something with them. So I thought I would tackle some India photos from last year. Hard to believe we were there, let alone the fact that it has been a year??? Here are some favortie photos from the Agra section of our trip. The Taj Mahal has to have its own post :)
